USS JOHN C. STENNIS, At Sea (NNS) — Rock band “Taking Back Sunday” visited the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) and performed a concert for Sailors Jan. 11 in the ship’s hangar bay.

The visit, sponsored by Navy Entertainment, gave band members Eddie Reyes (rhythm guitar), Adam Lazzara (lead vocals), John Nolan (lead guitar), Shaun Cooper (bass guitar), and Mark O’Connell (drums) a chance to experience aircraft carrier operations at sea as well as entertain Sailors and thank them for their sacrifice.

This is the first time the band has performed on an aircraft carrier. While on board, they spent time touring various spaces, visiting with Sailors and signing autographs. “It’s pretty surreal for us,” said Lazzara. “Just watching how everything operates is pretty incredible. There’s a lot of moving parts on the ship and seeing it run so efficiently is impressive.”
