Jimmy Vivino Gets His Boots On
We’re excited to welcome Jimmy Vivino as the newest celebrity supporter of the Boot Campaign! Vivino is the Music Director and leader of Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band on Conan O’Brien’s TBS late night show “Conan.” He’s been a consistent element in O’Brien’s late night career, starting with the first episode of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” in September 1993. In June of 2008, Vivino moved from New York to Los Angeles and worked as Music Director/guitarist/arranger on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” and The Legally Prohibited from Being on Television Tour.
Now donning combat boots for a cause, Vivino is walking a mile in the shoes of the military to promote the Boot Campaign. The Boot Campaign’s mission is to promote patriotism for America and our military community; raise awareness of the unique challenges service members face during and post-service; and provide assistance to military personnel, past and present, and their families. Wearing combat boots with civilian clothes makes a statement. It starts a conversation, and now Vivino is joining it.
