18th Nov 2010 — Fostered by the love of banjo as played by the Kingston Trio and forged through a loving partnership and dedication to one another and a “dream” of a family business, Greg and Janet Deering celebrate 35 years of making the world’s finest quality banjos! The business license says “1975” but the story started long before that! Building his first banjo in college in 1968, joining other young luthiers like Bob Taylor & Kurt Lusting in 1970 forming a company called the “American Dream”, working briefly in partnership with Geoff Stelling of Stelling Banjos in 1975…all of these were the pivotal steps that lead to the birth of the Deering Banjo Company on August 25, 1975. With only the Basic, Intermediate, and Deluxe as their three initial banjo models, today the Deering Banjo Company has created the most versatile banjo line in the world with over 100 standard production models from the ever-popular Goodtime banjo through to the glorious long neck Banjosaurus banjo owned by George Grove of the Kingston Trio, the group that so inspired the young Greg Deering!
Over 50,000 banjos have gone to banjo players all over the world in the 35 year history of the company. Notable artists include Keith Urban, Rod Stewart, Doc Watson, Bela Fleck, Eddie Adcock, Tony Trischka, Joe Satriani, and countless other names familiar to lovers of banjos all over the world. Deering Signature models include the Terry Baucom, Jens Kruger, John Hartford, Mark Johnson, and David Holt; all of these artists are consummate musicians with demanding standards of performance in their instruments.
To celebrate this anniversary year, Deering launched a new website, a new 96-page color catalog, and a new “2010” tone ring in their Eagle II banjo.

With WeImprovise! I set out to build a different kind of promotion & discovery platform — supportive, expansive, & inclusive, for music, musicians (students, performers, educators, & researchers), and the wide-ranging industry that supports music worldwide.
The focus is jazz, blues, & roots-folk-world music — incidentally the music that feeds pop & rock creativity — along with the inclusion of cultural & sociological aspects without which the music cannot truly be engaged with.
What you see is the beginning, a proof of concept to demonstrate possibilities and inspire ideas.
