George Alex Katunich (born August 18, 1976) is an American musician. He is best known as the former bassist of Incubus.

Since high school, Katunich has used stage name of Dirk Lance, which was apparently taken from the credits of a pornographic film from the 1970s. A founding member of Incubus, he departed the band in 2003.[3]



Katunich was a member of Incubus from 1991 to 2003, playing bass guitar on the albums Fungus Amongus, Enjoy Incubus, S.C.I.E.N.C.E., Make Yourself, and Morning View.

After Incubus[edit]

In 2008, Katunich came back to the spotlight with Stickman Entertainment, which creates videogame music.[4] Stickman's portfolio includes contracts with corporations such as THQ, and musicians such as 311's P-Nut and Suzie Katayama. Stickman Entertainment has worked on soundtracks for such video games as Red Faction, WWE Smackdown, and MotoGP 2. They have also created Traction in Game Radio, a program that allows gamers to listen to music while playing.

In April 2006, Katunich played a gig with Southern California-based jam/funk band Willie's Nerve Clinic.

In September 2013, Katunich and former bandmate Jose Pasillas II, along with former Pharcyde MC Slimkid3 and Jurassic 5's DJ Nu-Mark, under the name 4 Player Co-Op, released the song "Picture Perfect Phantasy," inspired by the video game Rayman Legends. The song marks the first collaboration between Katunich and Pasillas since Incubus' 2001 album Morning View.
