Daniel with Boyce Avenue, the group with nearly 6 billion views on YouTube, answers 7 questions with Emmy


Every week, I interview fascinating people in our community, our nation, and around the world!

The idea came from a Facebook commenter who saw a video of me and my family floating down the river at Island Park. The person said I should turn things around and interview my dad (Nate Eaton) – so I did and the rest is history!

Boyce Avenue was formed in 2004 and consists of brothers Alejandro, Fabian and Daniel Manzano. The trio started making music together when Daniel moved back to Florida after graduating from Harvard Law School. Since then, their music videos have been viewed almost six BILLION times on YouTube and they have 15.5 million YouTube subscribers. Boyce Avenue has been called “the most-watched indie band in the world”.

The brothers have released several albums and performed in countries around the world. And fun fact, their version of “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars is my parents’ song.

Daniel agreed to sit down with me and I asked him the following questions:

  • How was Boyce Avenue formed and who came up with the name?
  • Your YouTube channel has nearly six billion views. Why do you think you did so well?
  • What’s one of the biggest lessons you’ve learned in the music industry?
  • You have visited many places. Have you ever been to Idaho and tried our famous potatoes?
  • Of all the songs you’ve recorded, do you have a favorite?
  • How is it to work with your brothers every day?
  • What is the one thing Boyce Avenue hopes to accomplish in 2022?


  • If you weren’t involved in music, what careers would you and your brothers have?
  • Do you have any traditions/rituals before or after the show?
  • What advice has someone given you that you can share with me?

You can watch my entire interview with Daniel in the video player above.
