This past weekend, Niederauer made several appearances around The Big Easy; Chris Owens’ club was one of them. He jammed out with Troy Turner’s Blues Band.
“He reminds me so much of me when I was younger. He’s really ahead of his time and I see a big future for Brandon,” Turner said.
This young musician has struck a chord with audiences and he enjoys playing in New Orleans.
“People like to give me compliments. It feels good. Performing in New Orleans is different than any other place. It feels different. It looks different,” Niederauer said.
He said he looks up to such guitar greats as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
He doesn’t plan on stopping anytime I soon.
“I just want to entertain people with my music,” he said.
Niederauer is in a band called “BX2″ with stands for “Brothers Times Two” along with his brother Dylan, and two other brothers, Thomas and Paul Foschino. Kyle Sheehan is also a guitarist in their band.
