Skeptic singer and musician, George Hrab, will perform for the CFI/DC community at the Hawk 'n' Dove, voted one of Esquire Magazine's Best Bars in America 2007.

Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, composer and heliocentrist George Hrab has written and produced five independent CDs; published one book; performed for President Clinton; shared the stage with countless numbers of musicians and acts; and has traveled across the country both as a drummer for the nationally recognized Philadelphia Funk Authority and as defacto President for Life of The Geologic Orchestra. Humbly following in the footsteps of such icons as Frank Zappa, Mark Twain, Carl Sagan, Will Rogers and even Penn & Teller, George has made it a personal quest to improve the cognitive thinking skills of each and every American by reaching them through their funny bones and dance shoes. His music, skepticism and wit have been featured on many radio broadcasts, TV shows, and podcasts. In addition to his ten-piece Geologic Orchestra shows, Geo often performs in a solo acoustic setting, wherein he re-interprets his own works, and also delves into bizarre covers.  He also produces a weekly podcast called “The Geologic Podcast” which features humor, sketches, skeptical and free thinking commentary and weekly segments like The Religious Moron of the Week, Grandma’s Entertainment Report, The History Chunk, Ask George, So Where Ya Calling From? and Interesting Fauna. George recently published "Non-Coloring Book" featuring a collection of his assorted writings, and also delivered a well received “fan of Geology” lecture discussing the evidence of the earth’s age at the 2007 Dragon Con science track. In 2008 he was asked to be a featured performer at James Randi's The Amaz!ng Meeting in Las Vegas.
