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!


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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!


Great to see all of you using your talents for a great cause.

Every time I see a clip of your performances for our troops, every time I see how much you care for our military personnel and their touch my heart. May God bless you for the love of country that you so obviously hold dear.


Thank you for what you do. I am the State of Florida VFW Patriotic Instructor. I am looking for voluntary Guest at this years Dept of Florida VFW Convention Patriotic Rally June 24. If this is something you are interested in or can do, Please contact me. Thank you.


Great story, great band. I am a Vietnam era vet, four of my five children served or are serving now, my youngest has received 6 nominations for the military academies, 3 to west point where he wants to go. My wife as a federal employee served 20 months in Iraq and pinned my daughter's captains bars on her.

From my family to your's. Thanks for your support and maybe somewhere down the line we'll have the entire family attend your concert.

Keep on Keeping the Faith.

God Bless each and everyone of you.

As the brother of two Army Veterans...son of Marine Corps Veteran...and a former Marine myself....let me Thank You...for them and for me for all the good you and the band does!!..(Although Dad guards the Gates of Heaven now!!)

Paul K. Warner

You are the best. Your military base shows are an amazing thing. Please consider the Inauguration. Everyone else won't man up. I know LT Dan can!

Lucas Freeman

You do such great work and your entire band should be proud of what they do to help the vets. Do you think you would ever consider playing at the Trump Inauguration to show the naysayers that they are truly not needed.

Safe and Happy Holidays to you,
Tony Sinopoli

Enjoy everything you do for our troops and those that have returned home. My son is currently at WPMA and enjoyed your award acceptance. Was just ready how Hollywood is turning there nose up at playing at the up coming inauguration. It would be a blessing to hear your band and would thrill the troops as they get a new Commander and Chief.

Forever thankful for your dedication,

Earl & Kirsten Martindale

We are so grateful for all the service men and women who have protected our freedom- 24/7/365 -holidays, weekends, and inclimate weather. I believe your generous work to support them is one of the the things that makes America great. Thank you for all you do! May your Christmas season be blessed with those you love. Merry Christmas!
