      About the Band

      Kimo Williams first worked with Gary (Sinise) as composer for a Steppenwolf production of Streetcar Named Desire. After learning of Gary's talents on the bass, Kimo encouraged him to do more playing, and over the years they enjoyed the occasional jam session. As Gary began what has turned out to be an extraordinary commitment to the USO, these jams eventually led to gigs in the Chicago area, gathering local talent and performing for troops and their families.

      Following one of his many trips overseas to visit those serving our country, he decided it was time to bring the band with him! With Kimo's help a talented group of musicians came together to form "The Lt. Dan Band".

      The Music

      The Lt. Dan Band covers everything from Springsteen to Linkin Park, from Aretha to Hendrix. There's something for everyone, and each show hilights the musical diversity of the band, as well as the passion and energy each member brings to the stage. Whether we're performing for troops overseas or a local club crowd, the goal is to have fun and rock the house!

      The Name

      "Lieutenant Dan" is the character Gary portrayed in the 1994 film Forrest Gump, a role for which he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. As Gary began visiting troops around the world, people (even little kids) who didn't know him as Gary Sinise, the actor, would recognize him as "Lt.Dan". Those in the military also seem to identify strongly with the character. And so the name for his group was an easy choice: Lt. Dan Band!
