Itâs been an incredible year for Five Star Iris â some might even say life-changing. The band â Alan Schaefer, his twin brother Rob Schaefer, Alex Winfield, and Dan Fishman â started out 2007 on a high-note. Supporting their debut full-length album FIVE STAR IRIS produced by the Grammy-winning Sylvia Massy-Shivy and Rich Veltrop, the band traveled far and wide to take their âmodern version of classic rockâ to fans all over the world.
A definite high point was getting radio airplay in a major market, as Salt Lake Cityâs KENZ 101.9 embraced the Atlanta-based band as one of their own. Championed by program director and afternoon personality Parker, the songs âLet It All Outâ and âIs There Something I Can Doâ connected with listeners there â enough for the station to have the band come out and play. The band has already been back a second time to show their support for the fans there.
A performance at the South By Southwest Music Conference, however, led the band on a very different touring path. Performing at a showcase attended by Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE), they showed they had what it takes to perform for the best of the best â our servicemen and women. Three months later, Five Star Iris was performing in the middle of the summer in Iraq.
Dubbed the âSummer In The Sandboxâ tour, this joint effort by AFE and Navy Entertainment took the band to Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, and Djibouti. Flying on military transport planes and sleeping in tents, it was truly the experience of a lifetime, and the impact it had on the band was immeasurable. On their return, to give something back, the band created a commemorative âSummer In The Sandboxâ T-shirt with the proceeds going to the wonderful Fisher House charity. The shirt is available for sale on the bandâs website along with a page dedicated to the Middle East tour.
The bandâs military involvement didnât end there. They were flown to Washington, D.C. to perform at the Pentagon for the U.S. Air Forceâs 60th Anniversary celebration. And for New Yearâs Eve they will be helping the sailors stationed at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba ring in 2008. An additional military performance is on the books for Australia in the spring.
Amazingly, Five Star Iris found the time to record and release another document of their musical talent. LIVE FOOLS was recorded live and âunpluggedâ at Wise Foolâs Pub in Chicago in April 2007. Drawing from both their first EP and the FIVE STAR IRIS album, LIVE FOOLS presents the band in one of their most natural settings â playing intimately for their fans. Included on LIVE FOOLS is the previously unreleased song âHi-Fi Connectionâ as well as many other live favorites.
2008 promises to be another event-filled year for Five Star Iris both on the road and in the studio. The band is finding great opportunities that will help them spread their music and positive message to everyone. For Five Star Iris, itâs about sharing what youâve got so that other people can share it too.
