Here’s what Brandon has to say about the PNNMB:

“I love the PNNMB… it’s like my family away from home. I’ve met some of my best friends from being in this band. It’s a great organization to meet like-minded people as well as play music! Performing in the band is an amazing experience. Words cannot describe what it feels like putting on a show for thousands of people, especially at a Carolina Panthers game. The PNNMB has given me so many opportunities to perform and meet some amazing people. I love being a part of the PNNMB and I wouldn’t give it up for anything.”
