Welcome to LCNBands.com

L'Anse Creuse High School - North Instrumental Music is under the direction of Mr. Daniel Griffith and assistant Mr. David Mety and includes four full concert bands, winter percussion ensemble and a marching band of 150+ members.  Both the Marching Crusaders and the LCN Percussion drumline are competitive circuit programs locally to the northern Detroit, Michigan area.

Crusader Bands have established a reputation of excellence through inclusion and integrity in marching, concert, and auxiliary programs. The band has consistently earned exemplary awards at MSBOA state competitions, receiving first division ratings in marching, concert, and sightreading contests.

What's happening right now?

It's a great week for LCN Bands!!!

RAFFLE TICKET PICKUP:
If you missed last Friday's pickup for the raffle tickets, we have a few options for you.  Sara Z. will be at next Tuesday's practice (yes, that's right....there's a marching band practice next Tuesday the 12th from 6-8.....exciting!!) If this doesn't work for you, or if you need them sooner, please let me know and I'll get you in touch with her directly to pick them up from her house.  Don't forget....the ticket stubs and money are due June 1st!

UNIFORM DROP OFF:
That was last Friday, too!  If you missed this as well, you need to get your uniform turned in ASAP.  Bring it to school this week and Mr G or Mr M will show you where to hang it....please don't just drop it or hang it somewhere and assume that we'll know that you turned it in!  And don't forget all your bits and pieces!

PRACTICES STARTING SOON!
Can you believe it.....marching season is starting already?!?  Check those calendars, folks....there are two practices in May and full attendance is required.

SHINY NEW SEMI TRAILER (WELL....SORT OF!)
Our new (to us at least!) trailer was delivered as promised over the weekend and it...is...awesome!  If you'd like to help us get it all ready for next marching season (inside modifications for safer transport of the equipment, snazzy cool graphics and LCN pride on the outside) please consider making a donation to our GoFundMe campaign.     www.gofundme.com/lcnbandstrailer


BAND BANQUET: 5/4
The highly anticipated, super exciting, end of year band banquet is Monday night at Zuccarro's (Gratiot between Hall and 21.) Doors open at5:30, dinner is at 6:00, with all the good stuff to follow!  

BANQUET SLIDESHOW DVDs:
For the first time in LCN Bands history, we will be selling copies of the banquet slideshow...yay! Copies are $10 each and we will be taking orders at the door when you check in.  DVDs will be passed out in class sometime later this week. 

SPRING CONCERT: 5/7
The final concert of the year (sniff, sniff!) will be this Thursday at JAPAC at 7 pm.  Lots of good stuff on the program....you won't want to miss it!

BAND APPAREL: 5/7
More exciting news to share (I can hardly stand it!)  We are proud to be teaming up with a new apparel company and they will have a table set up at the concert on Thursday to start taking orders.  Trust me, you'll want to bring some extra cash (or checkbook or credit/debit card....she takes it all!).....there are a lot of really cool options (yes, we've finally got some Band Mom and Band Dad gear too!)  Be sure to stop by the table and check it all out!

DSO FIELD TRIP: 5/8
The rescheduled DSO field trip is this Friday for those who previously purchased tickets.  If you haven't already gotten a permission slip from Mr Mety, make sure you have it by Friday.  And same scoop as before....dress appropriately, pack a sack lunch for the bus ride back.  

CONCERT DRESSES AND TUXEDO SHIRTS/BOW TIES:
Ok so here's the deal on the dresses and tux shirts/bow ties.....seniors, please plan on bringing a change of clothes with you to the concerton Thursday so that you can change at JAPAC and turn your stuff in right then and there.  That way, nobody has to worry about you forgetting it the following week (your last week of school) since we know your mind will most definitely be on other stuff!  We'll have a box set up in the lobby and you guys can just drop it there.  Everyone else....please wash and return your stuff by the following Monday.

Thanks for visiting!
