While Crow Creek performs as one band, there are two separate competition groups, competing at Grade III and at Grade IV.
Crow Creek Pipes and Drums was created in 1979 by a small group of pipers and drummers who wished to form a competition grade Pipe Band. In 1981, the band became a non-profit organization under the guidelines of the U. S. Internal Revenue Code.
In 1990, the Band selected Ramsay Red as the official Crow Creek Pipes and Drums tartan. In recognition, the Clan Ramsay Association of North America, Inc. has issued a certificate of honorary clan membership to the band.
Since 1992, the band has developed a strong musical foundation under the leadership of Pipe Majors Joe Albrecht and Mike Webster. From 1995 through 1998 Mike Webster, from Aberdeen, Scotland, led the band. The current Pipe Major, Joe Albrecht, is an Open Grade competitor who was Pipe Major from 1992 through 1994, and reassumed the position in 1999.
M. L. Loudermilk has served as President of the band since 1995. During this period the band's membership and annual budget has more than quadrupled a growth trend than continues today. The current band Treasurer and Business Manager is John Lime. Melissa Spratto serves as band Secretary and Assistant Business Manager.
