The Flecktones picked up another Grammy today. Best Instrumental Composition for Life in Eleven.

Congrats guys! I think that's 6 as a group and like 13 total for Bela

haha, not quite 19, the 13 includes the 6 with the band. So just 13 (at least according to what I can find on the net).

Also, I think with this year, he moved up into the top 10 for most nominations with 38.

Whelp, Tex, I ran into Abby last year after #18 and she confirmed that number, so I added one. Simple math.

Maybe Chard can confirm the actual number for us. :)

Actually the list of nominations doesn't include the 13 nominations that he actually won. So I would consider that 38 nominations . . . or do the wins not count as nominations? . . . not sure how that works

Either way, that's a lot of nominations and wins.
