Lt. Dan Band

Years after his wild success portraying Lt. Dan in the film Forrest Gump, Gary Sinise formed the “Lt. Dan Band”. A rock and roll cover group founded with the purpose of bringing music to American troops at home and overseas, as well as performing for charities involved with the veteran community.

Sinise was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, and attended the Illinois State University. Later Sinise would go on to found the Steppenwolf Theatre Company, where he would continue to grow as an actor and director.

Sinise founded the Lt. Dan Band in the early 2000’s and soon the band partnered with the USO. Since, the band has travelled all over the world delivering entertainment to thousands of service members and veterans. Check their website for tour information and upcoming performances.
