Ceud Mile Failte!

(A Hundred Thousand Welcomes)

Muskegon Lighthouse
The band was formed 2002 in Muskegon, Michigan. It was renamed in 2004. We perform in many functions and special events throughout West Michigan and beyond. The band includes both police and non-police persons in the spirit of highland music and culture. We have recently added a Monthly Celtic History page to our site.  We encourage you to learn more about our band. New members will be allowed to perform with the band once they have learned all of the parade sets. We also share members with other local pipe bands.

The band wears the ancient Hume tartan with the permission of the Clan Hume. This is in honor of Thomas Hume one of the civic leaders of early Muskegon. The band also wears a dark blue police-style short sleeve shirt with a shoulder patch designed specifically for the band. At this time the City of Muskegon police officers have been the major supporters of the band. We are also thankful for the FOP Charles Hammond Lodge major contributions.

If you would like to contact the band to schedule an event, parade, memorial, funeral, lessons, or any other inquiries please click the Information Email link at the bottom of each page.
