The NGU Marching Crusaders perform at all home football games, select away games, area parades, and high school competitions. The marching band was established in the fall of 2000 and is a scholarship-based organization in which funds are distributed between fall and spring semesters. The band is open to all enrolled students at NGU. The Marching Crusaders have been the featured ensemble for the 2006 Red Ribbon Week Parade in Greenville, SC, the White Knoll Silver Invitational, the Green Machine Invitational, and has appeared in the 2006 and 2010 Victory Bowls. The Marching Crusaders are under the direction of Phil McIntyre.
