Shane Human (yes, that is his real name) is one of the newer additions to the Ticket Alternative team. He’s a member of the TA Ticket Printing and Event Wristbands crew, helping out with his friendly customer service skills and sweet design skills on custom wristband orders! Shane is a pretty cool cat that loves music and basketball (we forgive him for being a Hornets fan) and was even in a touring band once! Read on to learn more about Shane and what he contributes to the TA family.
What exactly do you do for Ticket Alternative?
I create/design custom wristbands for Ticket Alternative’s EventWristbands.com
When you’re not at work, how do you like to spend your free time?
When I’m not at work, I’m heavily involved in basketball whether it be watching my favorite team (the Charlotte Hornets) or playing pickup games in Reynoldstown.
Where is your favorite place in Atlanta to kick back and relax?
My favorite place in Atlanta to kick back and relax would definitely be the patio at 97 Estoria.
If you could go to a show with any person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
It would have to be John Cusack…but he’d have to be in character as Rob Gordon, the snobby record store owner he portrayed in the movie, “High Fidelity.” His character in that movie was so charismatic and passionate about music and life in general. I think he’d provide great commentary during the show.
What’s on your current music playlist?
Run The Jewels Run The Jewels 2, Bob Dylan Bringing it All Back Home, Tame Impala Currents and Sam Cooke Night Beat
You used to play in a band called The Booze. What’s the your best “on the road” story?
I could talk about a lot of nights when the typical cliché partying occurred…but realistically my best SFW “on the road” story would have to be when I was on a joint tour with Jimmy Chamberlin’s band “SkySaw” (he’s the former drummer behind the original Smashing Pumpkins of the early/mid 90’s). Growing up, he was my favorite drummer. He knew what he and his playing meant to me. Jimmy let me play his drum kit numerous times during sound checks. He would graciously let me pick his brain and tell me the BEST studio stories about recording the classic Pumpkins records I grew up with. That has to be my favorite moment of all time!…musically speaking.
What’s been your favorite TA outing so far?
My favorite TA outing would have to be when I first started. We attended a “Happy Hour” at Monday Night Brewing. It was the first time I got to hang out with everyone outside of the office on a personal level and talk to them about things other than wristbands and event ticketing!
What upcoming Ticket Alternative event are you most excited for?
I’m really excited about attending MORE Braves games with the team.
What’s the weirdest/funniest thing you’ve heard around the office?
The weirdest/funniest things I’ve heard at TA are the tales and misadventures that happen at the infamous karaoke Christmas party.
