Thursday, Feb. 23, 6 p.m.—KILLINGTON—Thirteen-year-old Broadway sensation Brandon Niederauer will join the Joey Leone Trio Thursday, Feb. 23 at The Foundry in Killington for a special one-night-only appearance. The music begins at 6 p.m.
Niederauer appeared in Killington with Leone back in 2014, then a 10-year-old talent. The young guitarist and vocalist with the nickname “Taz” has already built up a solid reputation in the music world and played alongside some of the most prominent musicians of our time. Inspired by his father’s record collection, Niederauer took up guitar at the age of eight. Just four years later he was cast as the principle role of guitarist Zack Mooneyham in the Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical, “School of Rock.”
Living in New York City has opened the door for Niederauer to play with some of his most idolized musicians. He’s played with members of the Allman Brothers Band, Buddy Guy, Stevie Nicks, Lady Gaga, Slash, Jon Batiste, and many others. Since performing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show at the age of 10, Niederauer has made additional national television appearances on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert, “Good Morning America,” and “The View.” He was interviewed by Guitar Player Magazine in February 2016.
“To say Brandon—at his age—is a real guitar player, is an understatement,” said Leone. “Seeing a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon like this in an intimate setting will be a memory for life. If it sounds like I’m excited, you’re right.”
The Foundry at Summit Pond is located on Killington Road, Killington, and features the talent of Joey Leone every Monday and Thursday night. For more information, visit foundrykillington.com or call 802-422-5335.
