Deering ‘Gentlemen Of The Road’ Banjo Charity Auction - Bid For a One of a Kind Banjo Signed By Mumford and Sons - and Help Support a Good Cause

Deering Banjo Company is thrilled to announce the launch of the  Lewes Gentlemen of the Road Banjo Charity Auction featuring the first of five truly unique banjos signed by Mumford & Sons.

The Lewes Gentlemen of The Road banjo is crafted with a hard rock American maple neck, a violin grade maple rim and matching resonator, all brought together with a stunning Old Fashioned Honey finish. The banjo is remarkably light, weighing only 5 ½ pounds each; about the same as an acoustic guitar. The drum head features the Lewes Stopover design of crossed swords over a flame capturing Lewes’ long history of battles, (including the Battle of Lewes in 1264) and the towns love for their annual Guy Fawkes Night, the largest event of its kind in the UK. In addition, the peghead features the now iconic Gentleman of the Road “Willis” head proudly burned into the wood with the date of the Stopover underneath! The banjo is American made, right down to the custom banjo head made by Remo Drums in California. As part of this auction the GOTR Banjo will also come with a Deering branded gig bag.

The charity of choice for the Lewes Stopover is Oyster Project (Reg. UK Charity: 1132007), a Lewes based charity that was founded and is run by disabled people. Oyster Project's unique approach to self-help means that they do not rely on volunteers, but more on each other, learning to re-assess their expectations and develop their aspirations. It is all about taking part, working together and making things happen. Activities are organised by members and friends with an emphasis on empowerment and involvement for disabled people of all ages. Initiating work-like projects and focus on gaining skills and knowledge.

7 days to raise as much as we can for a good cause and bring home a one of a kind Deering Gentlemen of the Road Banjo signed by Mumford & Sons!

Goodtime Banjo Info and History:

A resonator back provides more projection of sound in the Goodtime 2. Made here in the USA, at the Deering shop with the same tooling they use to make the top of the line banjos. Greg Deering designed the Goodtime banjos in 1996 because there were no low priced banjos of enough quality for people to actually learn on without difficulty or giving up. He remembers what it was like to want a good banjo and not be able to afford one, so his gift to others is the Goodtime banjo line. Designed for success, the Goodtime banjos are the lowest priced American made banjos. They are so good many professionals have recorded with a them. If you want a great low priced banjo for travel and leisure that plays correctly and is durable, this is the best buy on the market!
