Who is better than Better than Ezra?

I want to share something that happened to my brother, Dan, recently. He lives in the outskirts of New Orleans with his wife and two sons. (and they are expecting their 3rd child in August.) In 2005 and 2006, Dan and Teresa were invited to attend The Bacchus Ball. It's an honor to be invited. Well, this year, Dan lost his Blackberry at the ball. The day after the ball he tried to call the blackberry to try to locate it and nobody answered it. He just assumed it was swept up with the trash. Nope. Someone found it. And the person that found it called Dan's boss--a full bird Colonel in the military, his boss said he wasn't going to deal with this and he passed the call to his secretary. They finally figured out whose blackberry it was, so a driver from the Corp, located the person who found the blackberry. Who found the blackberry? A band member from Better than Ezra. How cool is that? They performed at The Bacchus Ball. They found the blackberry, checked to see who the last call was made to, called that person and then made arrangements for it to be picked up. so cool. so nice.

Know what else is cool? In 2005, Sean Astin was the Monarch (leader?) of the parade at the Bacchus Ball. He saw Dan down in the crowd and pulled him up onto his lead float. They went around in the parade route multiple times. They figured out that Dan grew up about 30 minutes away from Sean's wife's hometown. They talked for a long time. This year, Sean was at the ball again and immediately recognized Dan again telling him how often he's thought of Dan throughout the past year. so cool. so nice.

I think it's really cool though, that Sean Astin had the honor to meet my brother, Dan.

Here's some pictures from the 2005 Ball.
