Deering Banjo Company is delighted to announce that they are teaming up with Mumford & Sons once again on their highly anticipated Gentlemen of the Road Stopover shows this summer 2015.In 2012 Mumford & Sons began the Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, a global series of events in small cities and towns around the world. The vision was to create a music festival that celebrates local people, food, and culture, where everyone pitches in and everybody gets something back. Mumford & Sons are no strangers to thinking way outside of the box when it comes to touring and giving back to their fans. As they so eloquently put it…“A Stopover is a celebration of a real place, with real people. It’s a bridge between the culture of a music festival and actual culture as lived by real-life people. We bring the music, the stage, the flags and the fans; everything else belongs to the town. Their energy and enthusiasm, their civic pride…their favorite local beer. We’ve found it to be a beautiful thing – maybe the most beautiful thing that we do. We promise you’ll get more back than you can possibly imagine.”It is in this spirit that Deering Banjos was inspired to create something truly special, five one of a kind Gentlemen of the Road Banjos – one for each Stopover – signed by all four members of the band! These banjos will be auctioned off with proceeds going to a charity that best compliments each Stopover location. Find out more and place a bid here.The charity chosen by collaboration between Deering, Mumford & Sons and the town of Seaside Heights is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County. Their vision statement says it all: “That all children achieve success in life”. National research has shown that positive relationships between youth and their Big Brothers and Big Sisters have direct and measurable impact on the children´s lives. With a mission to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever, Big Brothers Big Sisters is a life changing preventive program. It ultimately reduces the need for possible future juvenile justice and school disciplinary intervention when the child is older. In the 17-year history of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County, all of the children in their program have finished high school and continued their educations in college or trade school, often despite considerable odds. Their program is making a difference in Seaside Heights, NJ and their whole region of Ocean County!This auction is live as of Wednesday June 3rd and will run until June 10th.

My mother tongue Dogri, my national language Hindi, and my official language English. I would request you all to not disapprove of any language, but rather be supportive of all. A good book is the lifeblood of civilization.” He also expressed his regrets on the gradual disappearance of the reading culture amongst children and youngsters, who are so engrossed in gadgets today that they have lost their learning skills. Bikash De Niyogi, MD, Niyogi Books stated, “With this initiative, we aim to take the language to greater heights.” The publication house started 2018 with launching three new imprints to pigeonhole their diverse subjects and genres of publication in Jnauary itself. And, coming towards August, they launched the first signature bookstore in Kolkata.
