The concert, sponsored by the Gary Sinise Foundation, is free and open to the public. A VIP area will be set up in front of the stage to be exclusively used by approximately 150 veterans and their loved ones from both Walter Reed at Naval Support Activity Bethesda & Fort Belvoir.

Sinise is currently on the CBS series Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, he played Lt. Dan Taylor in the movie Forrest Gump and went on to star for nine seasons on the TV show CSI: NY. Sinise is founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping and honoring U.S. service members, veterans, first responders and their families. A program of the Gary Sinise Foundation, Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band, has a singular mission when putting on a concert: Honor. Gratitude. Rock and Roll. His band has performed for troops all over the world. It’s a high energy performance as the twelve-member group covers hits from classic to contemporary, featuring the songs of Stevie Wonder, Kelly Clarkson, Adele, the Zac Brown Band, and more – there are even swing tunes from the 1940’s. You name it, there’s something for everyone.

Whether boosting morale on military bases at home and abroad, raising awareness at benefit concerts across the country, or headlining a Gary Sinise Foundation’s Invincible Spirit Festival, the band entertains and inspires where they go. It is Gary’s mission to deliver a message of giving back to our defenders with every show.

Rock of Vegas presents Smash Mouth

Smash Mouth will perform a FREE LIVE CONCERT at 9 pm on the 3rd Street Stage.

Formed in late 1994, Smash Mouth began recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood, Calif. In June 1997, Smash Mouth signed to Interscope Records when label brass caught wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being added to L.A. radio station KROQ’s playlist after only one spin of their song “Walkin’ on the Sun.” Smash Mouth’s major-label debut Fush Yu Mang goes more than double platinum and sets the table for what most consider their masterpiece, the brilliant follow-up album Astrolounge. Boasting three top-ten hits (“All-Star,” “Then the Morning Comes,” and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”), sales for Astrolounge are nearly double than their debut album, approaching quadruple platinum status. Smash Mouth’s third eponymous Interscope release features the ecstatic first single “Pacific Coast Party” and the smash hit “I’m a Believer” which was featured on the Shrek soundtrack. The band most recently released the album Magic and continue has focused on touring and entertaining troops in Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
