The star of CSI: NY who'se also known for his role in the movie Forrest Gump will be jamming with his band in Fort Riley next month.

The Lt. Dan Band is named after Gary Sinise's role in the movie. They'll put on a free show for soldiers, their families and Department of the Army civilians and their guests.

Sinise plays bass. The 12-member Chicago-based band covers a wide-range of music including Bruce Springsteen, Linkin Park, Aretha Franklin and Jimi Hendrix.

The concert is scheduled as a welcome home to the Combat Aviation and 1st Sustainment brigades, both of which recently completed successful 15-month missions in Iraq.

“Gary Sinise is a strong supporter of the military. Lt. Dan Band came out as something to support the troops. We are very fortunate that he is coming to Kansas to perform,” said April Blackmon, center director for United Services Organization Fort Riley.

The show is set for 7 pm, May 9th, in front of Hangar 863 on the Marshall Army Airfield. A military or civilian identification card is required for admission.
