In addition to an active career in performance, Benny Grotto is a co-owner of Mad Oak Studios -- one of the finest and most celebrated recording facilities in New England -- as well as its house producer and head engineer.  The ecclectic nature of his credits and clients list reflects his own personal tastes, with artists ranging from hitmakers like Aerosmith and Weird Al Yankovic to ska luminaries like The Skatalites and Big D and the Kids Table; folk musicians like Tony Furtado to hardcore staples like Blood For Blood and Gang Green; and piano-driven art-pop like The Dresden Dolls and Ben Folds to fuzzed-out stoner rock like Orange Goblin and Lo-Pan.

While a selected discography appears on this page, a more thorough one can be found here.

His production and recording approach is artist-driven, with an emphasis on fostering a creative environment that facilitates great performances captured with unique, interesting sounds, without ever losing sight of the character of each individuals' personal musical contribution.
