BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Patriotic actor Gary Sinise, aka “Lt. Dan” in the movie Forrest Gump, will be in Brevard on Friday, Sept. 29 to do a free show for military personnel at the King Center for the Performing Arts.
The doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. and admission is free to to active military and Department of Defense cardholders.
The Lt. Dan Band is a cover band founded by Sinise and Kimo Williams to perform at USO shows, entertain troops and raise money for disabled veterans.
The band is named after the character Lt. Dan Taylor, whom Sinise portrayed in the film Forrest Gump. Sinise has said in interviews that many people know him by sight as “Lieutenant Dan” rather than by his real name, hence the band’s name.
The concept came about when Sinise asked for permission to bring musicians on his USO tours. The group was initially known as “Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band.”
