Welcome to

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 around 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?


The first booster meeting of the year will be this Thursday Sept 25 at 7 pm in the band room.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend! Come with your questions or concerns, come to meet the gang (if you haven't already!) or just come to check it out and see what's in store for the exciting year ahead!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Little Caesar's Pizza Kit fundraiser!  Pizza kits will be ready for pickup on Thursday between 2:30 and 6:30 either in or just outside of the band room near the percussion door (depends on weather) Please note that we are not responsible for orders not picked up.....the kits need to remain refrigerated and we do not have storage.....kits not picked up will be donated (at your expense....yikers!) so please don't forget!

Our first home game (sort of) will be this Friday and it's Senior Night.....yay!  Separate email detailing Friday's event to follow.

And our first competition is this Saturday....yay again!  A separate email detailing Saturday's itinerary will follow as well.  

Uniforms went home with the kids after Saturday's practice and will stay with you until we ask for them back later in the year.  Please make sure you have all the necessary bits and pieces for every game and competition......pants, jackets, gauntlets, epaulets, hats, gloves, shoes.  And a few notes for our new families:  
  • once wet, these uniforms take a long time to dry out.  If it rains on a Football Friday and they have a competition the next day, try to make sure they are getting hung up and not left on the floor somewhere (teenagers.....just sayin') or they'll be damp, uncomfortable and yucky the next day
  • if your uniform gets dirty or smelly throughout the season, you can drop them at the dry cleaners.  The cost is usually $8-9 and the cleaners at the corner of 21 and Gratiot (by CVS and China King) does a great job.  If you do this, however, make sure you time it so that you have it back in time for whatever football game or competition is coming up next.  

MSBOA: 10/7
MSBOA Marching Band Festival is right around the corner and we still have a lot of holes in our Signup.....please take a look and see where you can help us out.  We really do need everyone to step up for this one.....its a really exciting opportunity for the kids, the program and the school but we can't do it without you!

Thanks for visiting!
