The 1st Michigan was honored to play at the 50th Anniversary Tattoo for the U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps on June 19th, 2010.  Watch the video here.

Welcome to the website of the 1st Michigan Colonial Fife and Drum Corps. We were founded in 1974 as a family-oriented group that seeks to keep alive the music that was played in 18th century America, brought here by settlers and soldiers from England, Scotland, Ireland, France, and the Germanic states.

1st MI FJ 2010 Thanks to the Plymouth FDC for the photo.

Our instruments, uniforms, and flags are authentic reproductions of those used by Continental soldiers during the American Revolution. Our uniforms are modeled on those worn by Daniel Morgan’s riflemen, and our instruments are based on surviving examples from the late 18th century.
