WATCH: Mike DelGuidice Nailed the National Anthem at Sunday’s Jets’ Game!

It’s a Long Island Cinderella story! Mike DelGuidice went from the Miller Place High School jazz band to forming Billy Joel tribute band Big Shot to joining Billy Joel’s actual band at the Piano man’s request in 2013.

Last Sunday Mike shared a video of himself performing the national Anthem at MetLife Stadium before the Jets game against the Miami Dolphins. Now mind you, the Star Spangled Banner is not an easy song to sing. We’ve seen many an artist mangle the tune, but not Mike, he nailed it and made Long Island proud!
