Not Many People Know This About Our ActiveRain Superstars Greg, Brad and Jason

By
Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition 210155

Not many people know this, but…….

Greg, Brad and Jason

Before Greg Nino became the renowned Houston area Realtor that he is…...

Before Brad Andersohn became the ActiveRain guru that he is…..

Before Jason Crouch became the King of all things Real Estate……

They were the original Bee Gees!

That’s right folks!

They were the original Bee Gees!

Before there was ActiveRain, there was the Bee Gees!

Apparently, and forgive me here, but the story is a tad fuzzy as there is very little documentation on this topic, Greg and Jason met while singing at a karaoke bar somewhere in between their respective home towns of Houston and Austin, Texas.

They immediately clicked and formed a short lived, albeit moderately successful duet, the...

“Oh Jeez”!!!

After a few months of performing at dingy night clubs and highway rest stops, the Oh Jeez realized that something was missing…And then it happened...

Would you like paper or plastic, ma'am?!!!Brad Andersohn was bagging groceries at the local Piggly Wiggly when the Oh Jeez came in to do their weekly shopping. The two heard Brad singing while making sure their eggs were carefully bagged so as not to break.

The missing piece was found!

Brad decided to give up on his lifelong dream of perfecting the, “Would you like paper or plastic, ma’am?” line, and the Bee Gees were formed!

Perhaps they needed someone to sing those high notes! Perhaps they needed someone with big hair! Perhaps he just looked good in those 70’s outfits the group wore! But, whatever the reason, the newly formed trio set out to make a life of music.

And, the rest, as they say, is history!

Dear Craig,

This is too funny. I can totally see it! They make great BeeGees! by the way TX does not have Piggley Wiggly, make it HEB or Randalls and you will be spot on.

Betina - Yeah, we don't have a Piggly Wiggly either. But for comedic purposes it just works better than HEB or Randalls!!!

I THOUGHT Greg's voice seemed eerily familiar! And he is certainly a woman's man. :)

Thanks for revealing the truth behind this well-kept secret, Craig!

Cheers,
