Alan Schaefer is an accomplished recording artist, songwriter, speaker, entrepreneur and consultant who realized that the valuable lessons he learned from playing in bands could be applied to individuals and teams in a number of different environments, including the business world. His fascination with why certain bands had success and longevity while others fell apart turned him into a student of group dynamics and collaboration which ultimately led him to create Banding People Together, a dynamic musically themed collaboration company. For Alan Schaefer the rock star dream began years ago when his older brother took him to see a stadium concert featuring The Who as a birthday present. “Looking back that very well might have been the most life changing gift that I've ever received,” recalls Schaefer. While his interest in music remained strong, he temporarily shelved his childhood dream and by the time he went to college, he was more interested in the hotel business than the music business. While pursuing a degree in Hotel Restaurant Management he suddenly found himself battling a still unexplained life-threatening illness, which in turn made him rethink exactly what he wanted to do with his life. After recovering, he quit his job at a local hotel, started playing guitar and writing songs eight hours a day and joined his first “real” gigging rock band. He earned his BS in Communications at Florida International University, then promptly moved to Atlanta to start a band with his twin brother. Upon his arrival, Schaefer landed a job toiling in the warehouse of WEA Distribution for six months before being promoted to assist no less than 13 label radio reps at one time. Elektra Records then hired him to do radio promotion for such heavyweight artists as AC/DC, Metallica, Tracy Chapman, and Phish. In 1994 he left Elektra and with his twin brother co-founded Tourdates.com, an online music resource for bands and fans that was successfully sold to Launch Media (now Yahoo Music) in early 2000. He stayed on for a year as VP while still continuing his musical pursuits. In 2004 he founded the band Five Star Iris and has since performed in 16 countries (including Iraq for U.S. troops), received national airplay, been interviewed in Spin and Billboard, worked with Grammy Award-winning producers, written with hit songwriters and toured with platinum acts. Alan has also consulted for marketing companies, record labels and major retailers such as Best Buy.
