Geoff also had a podcast called Worst Gig Ever you can check out, which had over 100 episodes, and a 7 episode web series produced through Official Comedy. If you do not know him from his comedy wares, you might know him from his musical wares. Geoff was the bass player in the influential hardcore band Orchid and the bass player in the less influential but to a select few band Panthers. He currently plays guitar in the metal band Low Estate and bass in the hardcore band Ritual Mess. He also composes solo synth music where he is slowly ripping off the horror soundtracks we all love. If you do not know him from either of these lifestyle ventures, you might know him from sitting on his couch with his wife and his bulldog, listening to weird metal and prog rock records and explaining to anyone who will listen why all eras of Genesis are important to the world.Registration Unavailable
