year, and have included tours to Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay, Kuwait, Ft. Hood, Walter Reed Hospital, Brook Army medical Center, San Diego Medical Hospital, and many more. Danny states “ I have to say that performing with Gary Sinise and Lt. Dan Band is one of the greatest experiences of my life. I know it may seem odd for a predominantly jazz performer to enjoy playing with a cover band, but it’s so great, on so many levels. We play mostly benefits, and playing music to raise money for those in need has changed my life. Gary has partnered with the Siller Foundation and many concerts are done to help build homes for severely wounded soldiers. Gary promotes the concerts to each community, and to see the outpouring of supports in ach community is unbelievable. It feels like he is changing the world, banding people together, city by city, and it’s wonderful to just be involved. It feels like you are really doing something”. He continues ”The band is a joy with which to perform! It is a group of amazing musicians, playing classic tunes with incredible energy and intensity. And Gary sounds fantastic on bass! He’s a great rhythm section partner, and for someone who does not usually play this wide array of popular songs, it is actually a big challenge. And to perform them with my wife Beth on percussion is like a dream come true”. There are many concerts booked for the LTDB for 2013, including 12 “Building homes for America’s Bravest” fund raising events; a return concert at San Diego Medical Center; Ravinia Park near Chicago; a tour to Japan and Okinawa for the USO; Air Adventure in OshKosh, Wisconsin and the American Disabled Vets Convention in Orlando.
