How lucky were we for a Veteran’s Day celebration? It is tough to keep up with all that may be going on in Las Vegas. We overhead a bit of a conversation and asked, “did you say the Lt Dan Band will be performing on Fremont Street”? Sure enough, Saturday night Gary Sinise and his Lt Dan Band gave a free concert on one of the stages on Fremont Street. And if you are one of the three people in the world who doesn’t know the Lt. Dan character, you will just have to Google it.
Gary Sinise created his Lt Dan Band about 10 years ago and has played hundreds of concerts around the world entertaining troops and benefiting the USO. This is no small production. There are 12 people in the band and there is a supporting staff as well. They play a lot of upbeat cover music that keeps the crowd singing and waving the little American flags they passed out. They even had Gary Sinise up on the Viva Vision canopy.
A lot of Veteran’s were there for the concert and we made our small contributions to the Gary Sinise Foundation and the USO. We salute all the Veterans and current service members on this special day!
