About Us

The Lamphere Band Booster organization was founded in the 1970’s to assist the Lamphere Band Directors and School Administrators in their efforts to develop a program of excellence for music education, performance, and leadership for our students.   We are an organization consisting of parents, family, alumni, and community leaders that are committed to enhancing our band programs through moral, physical, and financial support to our students.

Lamphere Band Boosters believe that music is an essential element in our students’ development, so we provide financial assistance for private instruction, music camp scholarships, awards, banquets, travel expenses, and unusual expenses associated with specialized instruments.  

Lamphere Band Boosters enhance the student experience by providing support during concerts, music camps, and competitions.  We provide all meals and refreshments for Lamphere High School Band and Color Guard members at the annual summer Marching Band Camp.  The organization assists Lamphere Bands at all events outside of the Lamphere School District and during the Madison Heights annual Memorial Day Parade, acting as “Roadies” handling equipment and props at these events.  An “after-glow” social event after every District concert is provided by the organization, and we organize various social events for band members during the year.

Lamphere High School and the Lamphere Band Boosters have successfully hosted the “Lamphere Invitational” for the past 15 years, a sanctioned event of the Michigan Competing Band Association (MCBA).  The Lamphere Band Boosters coordinate all activities during the Invitational.  We also have been a host site for the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association District XVI spring festival for the past few years.

As one can imagine, fundraising is a key component for our ability to successfully provide financial assistance to the Lamphere School District bands and students.  Lamphere Band Boosters run concessions at all Lamphere High School Varsity and Jr. Varsity football home games, All Varsity and Jr. Varsity Basketball home games (Men’s and Women’s), as well as Page Middle School football games.  During the year, there are various fundraising functions:LAmphere Invitational, MSBOA Festival, Car Show Concessions, Restaurant of the Month, Lamphere decal sales, fruit and flowers, etc. 

Lamphere Band Boosters has developed an online shopping mall to enhance our fundraising efforts called the Lamphere Band Mall ( http://lampherebandmall.com ).  This program allows the Lamphere Bands to receive a percentage of every purchase that originates through the Lamphere Band Mall.   Rather than going to your favorite website directly, go to the Lamphere Band Mall, and then navigate through the mall to the Retailer’s website that you would normally go to.   Make your online purchase, and the organization receives a donation.  It’s that easy!

We appreciate your support and hope to see you at one of our upcoming events.
