Gary Sinise's "Lt. Dan Band" to Perform During EAA AirVenture

    The EAA Warbirds of America and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) are bringing actor/director/musician Gary Sinise and his "Lt. Dan Band" to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2008 for a special concert performance on Friday, August 1, at 7:30 p.m. at Theater in the Woods.

    The band is named after Sinise's character Lt. Dan Taylor in the acclaimed movie, "Forrest Gump." Sinise was nominated for an Academy Award for that role. His other film credits include such blockbusters as "Apollo 13," "The Green Mile," and "Ransom." Today, Gary Sinise is best known for his character, Detective Mac Taylor, on the CBS series "CSI: NY."

    Building on the popularity of the film Forrest Gump and the character Lt. Dan, Sinise has assembled a group of talented musicians and has toured extensively with the USO in recent years. EAA members, volunteers, and AirVenture attendees will be treated to a rousing rock 'n roll show as part of the regular AirVenture evening program, as the Warbirds of America salutes Gary's involvement with the USO and shares his enthusiasm for recognizing the sacrifices made by soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen.

    "We're very pleased to have this opportunity to work closely with the DAV and present the Lt. Dan Band concert at AirVenture 2008," Warbirds of America president Rick Siegfried said. "Our members share with a patriotic link with Gary Sinise - a deep appreciation for the job our military does on our behalf. It's a natural fit to have the Lt. Dan Band and the DAV be part of the AirVenture experience."

    The DAV has presented Sinise with the prestigious DAV Commanders Award for his work in supporting our men and women in the armed forces.
