Hello, my name is Stephen Grindel and I am a 3rd year member of the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps. In 2010 and 2011 I marched trumpet, and this year I have been selected to be one of the Assistant Drum Majors, alongside Thompson Vou and Will Bishop. I truly love this corps and it's history. I have been able to receive and experience top-notch instruction from our great staff, and I have made many lifelong friendships during my time with BAC. I plan to remain with the Boston Crusaders until my age-out in year 2014.
The Boston Crusaders are the third-oldest drum & bugle corps in the nation and a proud founding member of Drum Corps International (DCI). For over 70 years the Boston Crusaders have provided opportunities for marching members to experience an intensive program of music education and performance training. While they are fiercely competitive, placing top 12 for the past 13 years, they are equally known for providing a family environment where members are not just another dot on the field. Today I am reaching out to family, friends, and alumni asking for your support to continue my Boston Crusader experience. Please CLICK THE DONATE BUTTON and make a tax-deductible donation to the Boston Crusaders. Your donation will fund instrument purchases, uniform repairs, equipment truck improvements and offset touring expenses (Boston's first ever West Coast tour) so marching members can remain highly competitive. Thank you so much for your support! Stephen Grindel
