Special CSIcon Event - An Evening with the Heathens
September 15, 2011
The Heathens are an all-star, all-skeptic rock and roll band from the entertainment capital of the world. For those who run screaming from Christian rock or New Age music, the Heathens musically answer the question, "Who wants to listen to that crap?"
The Heathens were formed in 1999 by CFI–Los Angeles Executive Director Jim Underdown, who wanted to bring some music and fun to a couple of local freethought conferences in Los Angeles. Underdown, who sang in bar bands in Chicago in his younger days, has been writing parody lyrics for years he thought might resonate with CFI members.
The current incarnation of the Heathens includes guitarist Craig Else, keyboardist Dino Herrmann, bassist Joel Pelletier, and John E. Skaare on drums. Underdown sings.
