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.
