From Our Fans

Thanks for the support

Our hope is that this Guestbook can be used by our fans to stay in touch with us, especially the troops stationed around the globe. Let us hear from you!


Hi there.

I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you!!! It was such a great feeling and night that you all came to perform for our military family here at NAS Whidbey Island. It was an honor for you all to give your time, travel, sacrifice from your own families to perform for us. It was fun, lots of fun. The song selection was fantastic. I could have watched you all till you all got tired! :) Thank you again so much for caring and supporting all the military (families as well) . Thank you Gary for your words of your own family history, your LT Dan experience and how the band came to be. Although, I have never served myself as an active member, but I am a retired Navy spouse which as you know, comes with it's own duties.

So LT Dan band, you made alot of folks have a window of time to enjoy life here on the island.

I salute you all!!!

Thank you so very much. Thank you USO for your giving back to our family of soldiers/sailors...

With hugs and love,


Mirria Gonzalez

Saw this beautiful band a few years ago when my son was stationed at Camp Lejeune. My son is stationed there again for three years and hope I get to see the band again! You are the best!! Life is truly like a box of chocolates when listening to you!!!

Roberta Thomas

Fantastic show, Gary! God luv ya and HOOAH for ya! My wife and I saw you and the band at JBLM on 15 July and it was flat out amazing. You guys hit the ground running and never stopped. I cannot express how much I appreciated what you are doing; spent half the night wiping tears from my eyes and the other half clapping wildly.

Jack Regan

Thank you Gary and the entire band for an awesome show at JBLM on July 15. Bringing my husband up on stage was hilarious. My husband was hoping to give you a token of his gratitude (for all you do for our great military) and we were hoping we might be able to get information on where he can send that. Thank you all so much for all you do!!!! We hope to see you in the future wherever we move next!!

I was so fortunate to attend the USO concert at Whidbey NAS with my nephew, retired Navy and my husband, Air Force....hopefully you enjoyed the amazing weather as well as the scenic views from the all were incredible and hopefully you will understand if we didn't yell quite as loud as we could...we are saving our voices for the Seahawks games
Thank you for giving your talents to those in service to our country. I do hope the USO accepts donations as I want to put them on my list of giving.

Veronica Barnes

Just enjoyed your wonderful show at NAS Whidbey Island. It was such an honor to be part of the event. Your gift of a show with your talented band given so humbly was priceless. You touch so many and spread such a wonderful message. Standing and singing the last song with you and the band made us all proud to be Americans. Thank you for all you do and the message you continue to give. Bless you all.

Linda Bass

I served 25 years in the Navy just retiring last year and I absolutely love all the support you give to veterans especially the disabled ones. I will see the band for the first time at NAS Whidbey Island tonight and I'm stoked! I own the Loakal Public House in down town Oak Harbor, WA close to the NAS and would be honored if any one from the band would stop by tonight after the show as we have a talented high school band called backyard bison playing tonight 9-11pm. We are dedicated to also providing good quality entertainment to the Navy men and women of NASWI. I'd be honored if a member of LT Dan Band would possibly be our first celebrity at the Loakal. Any way thank you from an old retired Navy man turned pub owner for all the support you've given the troops for well over a decade, my hats off to the band and all its support personnel.

Loved Lt. Dan in Forest Gump! I also appreciate so much what you stand for. I work for Knoxville Christian School and would love to have you perform in person.

Barbara Steele

I have yet to see you guys in person. I am Hoping to get to Las Vegas to see you in October 2017.

John Pool

I've only been able to hear the band play on the Internet, however, based on your 2017 schedule you all will be at Joint Base Lewis McChord sometime. So, it's exciting for me that I'll not only be able to hear Lt Dan's Band, (including my favorite base player Gary Sinise)! but you'll be only 5 miles from my home!! If it's a good day, I.e. NO PTSD or Depression fighting to keep me in doors, you bet I'll be there for your soul inspiring music. Thanks for all you do for vets.

I bumped into Gary S. while I was serving in Afghanistan, summer of 06. I did not acknowledge him as I did not recognize him. I was having a very bad day, I was somewhere around a 24 hour day by then, and I was splashing water on my face to get ready to continue my work.

I wanted to apologize to Gary S. for failing to just say hi but some days were pretty bad and focus tended to be elsewhere.

Thank you.

John T. Barton

Great work Gary. So proud of you. Hope you get to do a gig in Hot Springs, Arkansas for the Veteran's Administration Hospital here some day. Keep up the great work!

Jerry Lassiter

Thank you for all you do for our troops.

MSgt Michael Bursk (retired)

Lt. Dan Band, I'm a Vietnam veteran with a 100% service connected disability. I love the band and in particular the things Gary Sinise does for the military, veterans and their families. I know Gary's and the Bands schedules are extremely busy, but my Vietnam Veterans of America Post 106 is hosting our 30th anniversary NamJam on October 21, 2017 at Reid Park in Tucson, Arizona. It would be an honor and a blessing for the Band and your friends to come and play for our veterans, soldiers, friends and families.

We've changed our name this year from NamJam to Nam to Sand Jam to be inclusive of our younger brothers and sisters who have participated in post Vietnam incursions, such as Iraq, Afghanistan and our current war on Isis.

God Bless, and hope to hear from you on your availability to participate in our event.

Jake Jacobs

We were able to see your wonderful concert at Fort Campbell a few years ago and are looking forward to seeing you at Fort Hood!!! Thank you for all you do for the military community! It means so much to all of us!!!


Love you guys AND that Gary is from Chicago where I have lived my whole life. In fact, I am throwing a charity benefit concert on May 18th in the Gold Coast to support Mission 22 - a Non Profit that provides resources for veterans who come home from fighting for our country only to suffer from PTSD and other mental health issues. 22 a day on average are taking their lives. 22!! I've got a number of Chicago musicians participating and the event is going to be great but would be INCREDIBLE if you guys could make an appearance? You would be helping to save lives. Literally.

Ryan Pedersen

Hey Lt Dan Band we are having a welcome home event for Post 911 vets at the Health Care Center being constructed here in Butler Pa. The date is 09/09/17. I am an Army Veteran myself as well as a huge fan of what you do and would be honored to have you or possibly a suggestion of who else may be willing if you are booked.
Respectfully James Moreland BUTLER VAMC.


Love you guys! Thank you so much for doing all you do for the troops. Gary Sinise is a true American hero.

Linda Huffman

Gary, ladies, and gentlemen,

My wife and I just returned from the concert you all put on at Camp Lejeune. It was spectacular...thanks for all you do. I retired from active duty after 30 years and another 11 as a civil servant with the Marine Corps and I really appreciate the genuine love you each have for our military. I am not ashamed to admit that my eyeballs started sweating while you were singing and playing " Proud to be an American."

May God hold each of you in the palm of His deserve it.

Very respectfully,

Col (Ret) Bob and Susan Hayes

Dear Gary and the Band,
I haven't seen you guys perform in 8 years! I have seen you perform in Great Lakes, IL. Amazing then and now!
The family and I have seen you perform last night on Pearl Harbor! The husband and I loved the show.
I hope it won't 8 more years before I see you again.
THANKS for thinking of the troops and your continued work.

Break A Leg!


Looking forward to seeing you at Pearl Harbor tomorrow!

Joseph Murphy

What would it take to bring the band to our Military Winterfest, 22-26 Feb 2018? Proceeds go to the National Veterans Wellness & Healing Center for retreat of veterans suffering from PTS.

Leland Hopson

I met Danny and Beth Gottlieb over Christmas at our church where they played for the choir. They were so friendly and are a credit to the Band and what they do. I'm a Vietnam veteran and support Lt. Dan Band in what ever they do. I hope they get to read this message. And hope they return to Disney.

Calvin Dolsay

Hi, just want to say thank you for all you do for our troops.
I have not had the pleasure of seeing y'all in concert but would really love to some day soon. and again thank you.


Hi Gary,

I've been a military musician for six years now. A few years back we caught your show at Ft. Drum and my kids were invited on stage to sing and dance. They are much older. Ow and would like to have to opportunity for dad and them to "sit in with the band" in March when you guys stop in to Ft. Bragg...the girls would be ticked and even more so if we all had the opportunity...

Christian Schenk

When will you play for all the troops in the Hampton Roads area again?? We have so many branches of military theoughout the area. I am a miltary wife myself and would love to see another concert!!!
