On November 3rd 2012. Greg, Janet and Jamie Deering of the Deering Banjo Company, California, USA , visited Eagle Music to be part of the ‘Banjo 2012’ event, which also featured the fabulous Kruger Brothers in concert.
In the evening before the Kruger Brothers concert, Greg and Janet Deering presented Steve Noon and Eagle Music with a carved maple plaque in recognition of Eagle Music being their number one world dealership for the past six consecutive years. The plaque is also in recognition of Eagle Music’s amazing worldwide sales of more than two thousand Deering Banjos since becoming a Master Dealer for the Deering Banjo Company!
The plaque reads as follows…..
Eagle Music Shop
Celebrating your SIX YEAR ANNIVERSARY
It is with the greatest appreciation, pride and joy, that we honor and acknowledge Eagle Music as the number one Deering Banjo Dealer in the world.
You have not only achieved the enviable milestone of having sold more than two thousand Deering Banjos but you have maintained your status as the number one Deering Banjos Dealer world wide for six consecutive years.
While these dramatic and impressive numbers are important to any instrument maker when considering dealer performance, their greatest value is in the most important message they convey.
Eagle Music’s profound, in-depth, un-wavering and unrelenting dedication to your customers.
Customer trust is not easy to earn and very easy to lose. Maintaining this level of trust is the mark of a passionate and heartfelt dedication to customer service.
For these achievements, and for bringing the wondrous, life-affirming magic of the banjo to Deering customers around the world, we extend our deepest, most profound thanks and appreciation, and look forward to many more years of friendship, music, banjos and success.
Greg & Janet Deering, Barry Hunn
The beautiful plaque was made by Greg Deering himself, it is carved from solid maple and is now hanging proudly in the main showroom at Eagle Music Shop, here in Armitage Bridge, West Yorkshire.
