Johnny Gruber (aka "Knock 'Em Alive") grew up in Manhattan back when it was more gritty and grimy. It was a teeming and explosively-charged New York City. Amidst the hubbub of the times, which included the reign of The Son of Sam, the great blackout and the birth of punk, Johnny remembers sitting on the front stoop of his apartment building and tuning into great radio--WPLJ for rock, WKTU for disco--and devouring the sounds that poured from it; no matter the genre, his ears were open. Some of his musical favorites from that time included The Clash, Cheap Trick, Chic and Afrika Bambaataa.

hi, love your music and your style. hope you make me a connection. just to let you know that i am doing really great production and mastering packages at really low prices just for broadjam members. i will opening my new studio in two weeks time and i am giving broadjam members priority over all my other work, for a limited time of two months. i have already helped over 50 broadjam members in the last 8 months, giving them a better pro sound. and the first production or master is free, so you can really get a taste of the high quality i can get
thanks dave-str productions
