Last month we introduced you to Long Island native Brandon Niederauer, a
old guitar prodigy who came to our attention with his ridiculous solos on "Whipping Post"
with The Revivalists at Brooklyn Bowl. Yesterday Niederauer showed off
his skills to a nationwide audience with an appearance on The Ellen Show.
Host Ellen DeGeneres chatted with Brandon for a bit and called out a few song titles,
including "Jessica" by The Allman Brothers Band, and asked Niederauer to play a few bars
from those tunes. The pint-sized guitarist had no issue responding to Ellen's request.
Then, Brandon laid down a number of bluesy licks when DeGeneres offered him the
opportunity to play one of his songs. The segment ended with a surprise that we don't want
to give away, so watch the video and see for yourself:
