"Dan..You really kick some butt! Lots of Love"

SHANIA TWAIN


"When I was 17, I met this guy in Detroit. His voice & guitar were a combination of skill and passion like
I had never heard. Only a small percentage are able to persist their whole lives maintaining this high level of passion
combined with skill...My dear friend Dan is one of those!

"When I think of my friend Dan Schafer, the word that comes to me is integrity.
I've known him since the 70s and I've seen the arc of his career. He has one identifying trait…
he does not hold back. He delivers when asked to:
write a song, front a band, play guitar, bass, pedal steel or sing with that beautiful voice of his.
He is my friend and he inspires me with his integrity. He just does not hold back.
Rock on, my friend”

"Dan is one of the finest guitarists I've ever had the pleasure to know - and a real good guy too."

Billy Hinsche

the Beach Boys-Brian Wilson band-Dino, Desi & Billy


"Dan Schafer is one of the most talented guitarist/vocalist/composers that I have ever heard.
He and his band were legendary in the Detroit music scene,
and his legend lives on through his extraordinary work in Nashville.
His resume speaks for itself, and you will never hear a more versatile and solid talent,
both live and in the studio, as Dan.
When you are a musician, you have a wonderful opportunity
to emulate any player that crosses your path,
and Dan was a major contributor to my musical vocabulary."

Bob Birch

Elton John Band....1992 to 2012


Growing up not far from where he grew up, he was one of those guy you heard about.
Everyone talked about his musical talent. He can play anything and play it brilliantly.
He is one of those guys you want to hate because he is so talented.
But if you know him, you know that would never be possible.

Bobby Randall

Sawyer Brown-Confederate Railroad & TNN TV host.


"Over the years I’ve known Dan to be an entertaining solo artist,
an accomplished songwriter
and a consummate sideman.
He’s a player’s player
that compliments any musical situation he’s presented with."

Rich Eckhardt

Lead Guitarist for Superstar Toby Keith & many others
+ one of Ted Nugent's "10" All Time favorite guitarists!


"I've had a long association with string bender guitars and Dan Schafer is where it all started. Dan playing me my first Clarence White lick, that changed everything I thought about guitar. This guy's the bomb!!!"
