Los Angeles, CA – Just got off the phone with the manager of Nuttin’ But Stringz, who is stranded along with thousands of airline passengers in Europe due to the Iceland Volcano eruption. Not since 9-11 or Mount Saint Helens (May 18, 1980, Washington State) have so many planes been grounded. TMZ got an exclusive interview this week with Tourie and Damien Escobar, brothers who make up the internationally renown Nutt’ But Stringz, who performed live at Dancing with the  Stars on ABC. Taking a break from the show TMZ caught the urban rock violinists just outside the DWTS studios.

When asked who they thought was the best dancer? Both replied in harmony, “Kate Gosselin. She’s a good woman, a good Mom and the sexiest,”  Tourie and Damien answered.

TMZ’s Harvey Levin (shaking his head), back in the newsroom, was blown away when he heard Tourie Escobar tell the TMZ news cameraman that He’s
” in love with Kate Gosselin, and would love to date her.”

When they asked who’s the sexiest Dancer on DWTS, both replied Kate Gosselin. “Kate is even sexier than Pamela Anderson,”  said Tourie.  She’s “Pinot.”

Levin, back in the newsroom said, “Now you’re losing me, what is Pinot?” Both
violinists answer, “A fine wine.”

On Saturday, April 17th, Nuttin’ But Stringz is scheduled to be on the French version of America’s Got Talent. Two years ago they were in the top three when their unique, emotional sound swept American audiences.
