Nuttin' But Stringz, also known as N.B.S., consists of brothers Damien and Tourie Escobar who both play violin. The young musicians from Jamaica, Queens play a blend of classical music, hip-hop, jazz and R&B.

Biography
In 2005, with the help of their manager, James Washington, they entered a local talent contest at the legendary Apollo Theatre and won. As a result of the media attention surrounding the event, they have appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, The Today Show with Katie Couric, Carnegie Hall and The White House.

On January 8, 2006, the Escobars performed their song Thunder at the debut of the redesigned Cadillac CTS at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Nuttin' But Stringz performed after a classical string quartet. General Motors Corp. executives said Nuttin' But Stringz shows that what used to be good enough (the quartet) needs to be reinvigorated (N.B.S). A video for Thunder is also featured on the website for Jack's Big Music Show on Noggin.

Nuttin' But Stringz was featured in the first of five commercials featuring local artists on New York's local news channel, NY1.

In March 2007, NBS had their music featured in 2007 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament Highlights on CSTV (owned CBS), featuring a variation on their hit song Thunder.

Thunder is also featured in commercials on television for MSG, NY, a show about everything that is happening in or around Madison Square Garden.

In the pilot episode of the television series The Black Donnellys, the song Thunder was played. In the season finale, the song Broken Sorrow was also played.

Their music was featured during a montage at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The brothers auditioned for the third season of NBC's America's Got Talent in New York City and received a unanimous yes from all three judges thus advancing to Las Vegas. They were subsequently named to the Top 40, advancing to Hollywood. They made it through subsequent rounds and were one of the five acts to make it to the finals. The duo ultimately placed third behind Eli Mattson and Neal E. Boyd.
