Benny Grotto plays drums in Motherboar and records music at Mad Oak Studio.

BBC: What Boston rockers, past or present, would you most like to have a One Night Band with?
BG: Johnny from Clouds. Keith Pierce from Mellow Bravo. Marc Gaffney from Gozu. That’s a lot of highly-explosive rock ‘n’ roll firepower. Shit might get dangerous.

BBC: What Boston rockers, past or present, would you most fear having a One Night Band with?
BG: Johnny from Clouds. Keith Pierce from Mellow Bravo. Marc Gaffney from Gozu. That’s a lot of highly-explosive rock ‘n’ roll firepower. Shit might get dangerous.

BBC: Did you attend One Night Band last year? If so, what was the highlight? If not, what do you anticipate the event to be like?
BG: I did not attend. I think it’s gonna be a helluva lotta fun, and a great way to meet and jam with some folks outside my usual thing.

BBC: What is your normal song or part writing process? Will writing three songs in a single day drastically differ from your usual approach to creating music?
BG: I usually act more as an arranger or producer. I let the smart guys come up with the music, then I organize it into some kinda song-type thing. Considering that it takes Motherboar about three months to get our shit together on one song, well, yes, it will differ quite a bit.

BBC: What Boston band do you have the biggest crush on right now?
BG: That’s an easy one: Mellow Bravo.
