We've got a packed studio to give you a Starkiller Base sized review of Star Wars! We even had to make room for filmmaker Corey Machado via Skype. And it wouldn't be Band Geek unless we took some John Williams and rocked out with our lightsabers out.

In round two with the incredible Hanan Rubinstein (Producer, Musician, Engineer, & Guitarist for Alicia Keys), we are up to our usual antics. We get a little smoove, sexy, and silly with some Bill Withers, then rub some funk on some Beyoncé.

To try and even list ALL of the work our guest this week has been a part of would require its very own episode by itself. But Hanan Rubinstein (Producer, Musician, Engineer, & Guitarist for Alicia Keys) wins the prize of our most complimented guest yet.
