Public Address Announcer
Jeff K has been with the Dallas Stars for more than a decade, first as Music Director, then In-Game Host, and now Public Address Announcer.
Besides being the in-arena voice for the Stars, Jeff is also a longtime Dallas-Fort Worth radio personality. You can hear him weekday afternoons from 3 to 7 p.m. on Lone Star 92.5-FM.
Jeff enjoys the quiet life in Plano with his wife, Carrie. Their daughter, Marselle, recently graduated from the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine.
Grubes is in his seventh year as Arena DJ somehow. He was born and raised in Dallas. He attended high school at Jesuit College Prep, graduating in 2003. While there, he played baseball ... poorly. This lack of athletic talent, however, led him to the Dallas Stars' radio home, Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket.
Grubes spent a decade there, rising from lowly 16-year-old intern to still-lowly afternoon board operator. At The Ticket, Grubes enjoyed his time as a drop artist, inserting sound bites at the most (in)appropriate times to enhance the silliness of the show. Now, he uses those sweet skills to enhance your game experience at AAC!
Grubes is also employed by FOX Sports Southwest as an audio engineer and co-host of web show "The Dose," Ambassador of Fun with the Frisco RoughRiders, and plays guitar for Pepper Theft, a Red Hot Chili Peppers cover band.
He also DJs weddings for Stars fans ... seriously! Otherwise, you can find him tweeting his insane thoughts at @tweetgrubes ... but don't follow him.
