We can feel the excitement in the air as the final preparations for our 40th Anniversary Celebration & Benefit Concert aboard the Star of India Ship are completed...and boy do we have some monumental surprises in store for you!
The Legendary Giveback III Banjo is here and truly one of a kind! We have once again teamed up with North Carolina indie-folk rockers The Avett Brothers, Cheerwine®, the legendary soft drink of the South, for the third consecutive year to present the Legendary Giveback III Campaign for 2014. As part of this we have created a NEW one of a kind “Cheerwine Red” maple banjo with a custom banjo head. This is being auctioned off for charity on eBay beginning December 8th and closing December 17th, 2014.
New Music Monday! Bringing you Scythian who never fail to get their audience dancing! From their upcoming album "Jump at The Sun" this song is titled Caeli which means "a traditional Gaelic social gathering, which usually involves playing folk music and dancing". Featuring Ben-David Warner on his Eagle II Acoustic-Electric banjo, we hope this gets your toes tapping!
One of the things that we take such great pride in here at Deering is the fact that everything we make is made right here in our facility in Spring Valley, CA. That includes the tone rings.
The Deering Goodtime banjo is the most popular American made banjo in the world. To celebrate the “Sweet 16” Anniversary of the Goodtime banjo which was introduced in 1996, we here at Deering will be kicking of a series of events throughout the remainder of 2012 with a contest to design the face off the campaign! The Goodtime Sweet 16 Logo Design Contest will see Deering offering its loyal customers and fans the opportunity to create the logo design for the entire campaign.
It is the night before the big day here at Deering! The early hours of Friday morning will see the arrival of not one, but three new machines that will help us take our production to new giddy heights and meet the ever growing demand for quality, American made banjos. This latest addition to the Deering facility in Spring Valley, CA only serves to highlight the fact that the humble banjo, more than ever is being accepted as a mainstream musical instrument.
