Hello. My name is George Hrab. I am an American citizen of Ukrainian descent that resides in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and makes a living playing drums in a nine-piece horn band called The Philadelphia Funk Authority. I produce a weekly internet audio program called The Geologic Podcast. This program has no geology content whatsoever but is so named as a portmanteau of “George” and “logic.” This tends to confuse people. Quite rightly so. I seem to have a habit of regularly acting as emcee/host for science conventions like The Amazing Meeting, The Australian Skeptics Convention, or QED. Those are always super fun. When I am not performing with The Philadelphia Funk Authority or working on The Geologic Podcast or emceeing science conferences, I like to write and record albums of original music. I have six so far, plus one live album and DVD. When people find out that I am a songwriter, they ask me what my music sounds like. I usually tell them who my influences are, and that my songs are basically crappier versions of those influences. The main bands that I like are Yes, King Crimson, Talking Heads and Frank Zappa—although Frank Zappa is not a band but an individual.

I am also an individual…but nowhere near as cool as Frank Zappa.

Welcome to my website. There’s a lot of links to clickety-click and a way to easily get in touch. Please do so. Enjoy.
