Alan Schaefer

CEO/Founder

Home Base: Atlanta, GA

First Concert: The Police

Band that makes me feel like a fan: U2

Lyrics I wish I'd written:

“You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen” Bono-U2

A Book(s) that's changed my life: Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Switch, Leadership and Self Deception

What my publicist will tell you:

  1. Played in 17 countries as frontman for the band Five Star Iris
  2. Successfully built and sold my first company by the time I was 30
  3. Entertained US servicemen and women all over the world including Iraq
  4. Won the United Kingdom songwriting competition for the rock category
  5. Consulted for GMR Marketing and Best Buy
  6. Sang the national anthem at a Nascar race on national television
  7. Co-wrote a song that made it to #24 on the Billboard Hot AC chart

Things that might surprise you:

  1. I flew a C-130 over the middle east
  2. Won a countywide essay contest on Brotherhood in 3rd grade
  3. Been to the British Virgin Islands 19 times and counting
  4. I don’t go see very much live music
  5. I never wanted to be a singer or songwriter. Learned how because I needed them
  6. I’m a student of systems and complexity

What I love about Banding: Our people, sharing our world with others and the impact that we make every time we step into a session together.
