A Story about Andy & Michelle

featuring Guest Vocalist "Bad Astronomer" Dr. Phil Plait

Over seven and a half hours of material.

Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, composer, and heliocentrist George Hrab has written and produced six independent CDs; published one book; recorded hundreds of episodes of an award-winning podcast; performed for President Clinton—and has now released his first Live Concert DVD featuring his own Geologic Orchestra.

George has gained international notoriety by producing an award-winning weekly show called The Geologic Podcast which features humor, sketches, and skeptical/free-thinking commentary through various segments.

Exposure through his show has led George to travel around the world, performing his unique songs. Along with his superlative musicianship and clever songwriting, these intimate shows are known to showcase his quick wit and incendiary social commentary. He’s been invited numerous times to be a featured performer at James Randi's The Amaz!ng Meeting—including Las Vegas, London, and Australia—and as a special guest/performer in the Galapagos on the JREF’s Amaz!ng Adventure.

George toured both Australia and New Zealand as part of a fan-organized “Styrofoam Tour,” where he played to standing room crowds in Brisbane, Melbourne, Christchurch, Auckland, Adelaide, and Canberra.

He was asked to write the theme song to the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast and premiered the song FAR at the 213th American Astronomical Society Meeting in Long Beach, California. His Occasional Songs for the Periodic Table, a 118-part song cycle featuring a song for each element of the periodic table, has been described as the first “true geek symphony.”

George’s range of skills include being the drummer and music director for the nationally recognized 70s soul tribute band, The Philadelphia Funk Authority; publishing a collection of essays called Non-Coloring Book; and even lecturing on diverse topics from jazz history to science—including a science track discussion about the non-radiometric evidence for the earth’s age at Atlanta’s Dragon*Con convention.

George is considered one of the preeminent skeptic/science/atheist/geek-culture music icons currently living in his apartment.

Bravo Geologic Orchestra! A 'Must Have' for Geo fans.
At last, a chance for Geo fans in other parts of the country to see a live performance ... and what a performance! The Geologic Orchestra is obviously having a whale of a time here, and there are no disappointments. The set-list is a good mix of the familiar and expected, with a few surprises and unknown (to me) older songs in the mix. George really is a solid, well-rounded performer, with a great band.
The only downside? Now I want to see him live 'in the flesh', which ain't gonna happen.
Get this disc!

Holy Cow!
Can I please give this six stars? How about seven? This was beyond amazing - for a guy who claims to, "play drums and wear a guitar," this show was simply spectacular. I've loved George Hrab's music for years - ever since a friend introduced me to The Geologic Podcast, I've been a fan, but this concert was the super superlative. The only way for this DVD to be better would have been if I'd been able to make it to the live show itself. The choice of material was really solid, and the performances were what I've come to expect from George Hrab and the Geologic Orchestra (by that I mean "top-notch"). There were only two minor disappointments, and those I can easily forgive due to the sheer volume of material already present (but I do wish he'd played "Never Knew" - that's one of my hubby's and my songs - and I wish he hadn't turned away from the mic during that certain part of "Shoe" - I was singing along and felt a bit "exposed" when I belted out that particular line - George Hrab fans will know the one I mean). We are diligently saving our pennies with the intention of being in the audience at the NEXT live show, but having this DVD is certainly the next best thing - the cinematography is wonderful (some concert films change angles several times in a SECOND, and I just can't follow the action - the video editor changed angles PURPOSEFULLY, not arbitrarily - it was so refreshing), and the sound is top-tier (as I expected). Bottom line? GET THIS DVD! You won't be sorry.
