This is an interview my good friend Billy did with Nick Groff of Ghost Adventures. Enjoy!
What exactly are your team duties?
Researcher/Investigator and Executive Producer of Ghost Adventures, Co-Owner of GAC.
How many years experience do you have in the field of paranormal research and
What got you into the field?
I have always been fascinated with the supernatural/paranormal. I wanted to experience these happenings and find answers to what is actually out there.
What piece of equipment have you gotten the best results with?
For me, it would have to be a digital recorder. For some reason, I am able to capture some pretty incredible Electronic Voice Phenomenon’s (EVP’s). We do look to experiment with other pieces of equipment that have captured great evidence, but the digital recorder is a must for any investigation.
You recently investigated Moon River Brewing Company. I’m from Savannah. What did you think of the town? Did you do any of the tours or other tourist attractions?
I absolutely loved Savannah GA! It’s very historic and there’s a lot to see. The people of Savannah are very welcoming. Moon River Brewery Company was an amazing location to investigate and extremely scary at times. A second investigation would be great!
What’s the best experience you’ve ever had during an investigation?
I have had a few experiences that have stayed with me. First, witnessing scrap material and a brick fly through the air at the Goldfield Hotel, NV. The second would be at Moon River Brewery Company when I experienced a partial possession. I felt a dark presence come over me. When this occurred, I blacked out and in the episode you’ll see that we captured an EVP and a dark mist come out from behind me at the very same moment.
Have you ever been very scared of an experience and if so what happened?
Several times I have been startled. Time to time, even with all my experiences, it still gets me when something unexplainable happens. In the pitch darkness, it can take anyone off guard. When you hear a voice trying to communicate with you, or see a figure standing two feet away from you then disappear…let’s just say it can get pretty intense.
Where has your favorite place been to investigate?
I love all the locations we have been to because they are all different in their own way and each location presents a new challenge.
What location would you most like to investigate?
I would like to investigate the Buffalo Psychiatric Center in NY, but because of the condition of the structure they are not allowing anyone in there to investigate. That location looks awesome and it is incredibly historic.
Any advice for the would-be ghost investigators?
Research the location first, than investigate second. You need to know what you’re getting yourself into.
I’m really excited to have Nick Groff agree to an interview. Though it isn’t a long interview I feel that it shows a lot about who he is as a person and an investigator of the paranormal. This isn’t some PR piece, this is an interview I requested so you know it’s real. And I agree, digital audio is probably the best evidence that can be produced during an investigation.
