Audiences everywhere are falling in love with Dan Beckmann and Erinn Dearth. They will dazzle you with tap dancing, engage you with song, charm you with charisma, and touch your hearts with the true meaning of patriotism. Since 2010, Letters From Home has performed in more than 40 states, and in 2019 performed for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France. The show brings back the style of the USO from WWII to Vietnam with incredible high-energy performances that honor veterans, active military heroes and their families by Reviving Patriotism and Uniting The Nation through music. Together, bombshell Erinn Dearth and self-proclaimed “tall-guy” Dan Beckmann take audiences on a trip down memory lane with 1940s-1960s music, singing, tap dancing, comedy, audience interaction and a variety of other surprises along the way.
