We sponsor Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers, shown here at their Grand Ole Opry debut in July 2013, and help the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys now and then. We raffled off a Martin D-18 guitar in November 2014 at the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival and raised $2,000 for Guitars for Vets—and then surprised them on-stage with a Martin guitar donation.

These are great if you're looking for a new instrument to take up, or if you just want a beautiful conversation piece to hang on the wall in your living room or music room.

Guitars for Vets Benefited by Donations From
Janet Davis Acoustic Music and

During the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival

Wilmington, OH (November 10, 2014)--Janet Davis Acoustic Music and award-winning bluegrass group Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers made a charitable donation this past weekend to Guitars for Vets during the twice-annual Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival held at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio.

Winner of the raffled Martin D-16gt guitar was Monica Seebode, of Mason Ohio.

On Saturday evening, Mullins introduced Dave Thompson, Andrew Thompson, and Robbie Boone of Janet Davis Acoustic Music, the band's official supply sponsor, who together with Mullins, presented a check in the amount of $2,000 to Richard Hutchinson, Chapter Coordinator of the Cincinnati, Ohio Chapter of Guitars for Vets (G4V), a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of injured and ailing veterans through the healing power of music with free guitars and lessons to vets in a structured program staffed by volunteers. This contribution was made possible through the donation of a Martin guitar by Janet Davis Acoustic Music and a patriotic-themed handmade quilt donated by Wilma Miller. A $5 donation per prize allowed festival attendees to enter a drawing to win either item with all proceeds given to G4V. As a special surprise, Hutchinson was also presented a Martin guitar by Janet Davis Acoustic Music for use in the G4V program.

"The healing power of music is well known in the bluegrass community," explains Mullins. "For our fans to contribute several thousand dollars to Guitars for Vets confirms this and I know funds will provide opportunity for lives and hearts to be restored from the traumas of the battlefield. What could be better? And we are very grateful for the generosity of our friend Wilma Miller and Janet Davis Acoustic Music. The Thompson family of Janet Davis Acoustic Music eagerly supports our charitable efforts at the festival each November. What a blessing."

Earlier in the day the band performed "The Last Parade," a powerful song written by Steve Bonafel in honor of Staff Sgt. Nicholas Carnes of Dayton, Kentucky, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2007. Immediately following, Mullins introduced Robert Woods, the Ohio State Captain of the Patriot Guard Riders™, a support group of motorcycle riders accessible in all 50 states, available at a family's request, to honor and ensure dignity and respect at memorial services honoring fallen military heroes, first responders, and honorably discharged veterans. The band presented him with a check for $3,000. The contribution was made possible through proceeds from the digital downloads of "The Last Parade" along with sales of a commemorative t-shirt donated by Buckminn's D&D Harley-Davidson located in Xenia, OH.

Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers The Sleepy Man Banjo Boys



Just wanted to say that the service I received was second to none. I bought a used Yates RS banjo and am thrilled with it. It arrived packed very well and condition exactly as described. When Tom called me for set up questions I could tell he really knew and loved banjos. He was very nice and even called me about a week after I received it just to see how I liked it. Highly recommend them.


Thank you, Derek. I've heard other customers rave about doing business with Janet Davis Acoustic Music, and now I know why. You're the best!

Thanks again,


I want to thank Janet Davis Acoustic Music and one of your sales representatives, Tom, for assisting me in purchasing and shipping the Tacoma JF-21 Jumbo guitar on Tuesday. I received the guitar on Wednesday, incredibly, and it is one beautiful instrument, exactly as described by Tom. I also want to specially thank him for the fantastic setup of the guitar, which even included brand new strings - what a great surprise!

The packing was also excellent, and I am one very, VERY happy and satisfied customer of Janet Davis Acoustic Music. I have bookmarked your website, and will always look there first when considering future instrument purchases (I already have my eye on one...).

Many thanks again!


I have purchased two Wildwood banjos from Janet Davis, a Troubadour, and very recently a Paragon. They are beautiful in appearance, and Tom Anderson does a fantastic job setting them up and optimizing their beautiful tone. He is a genius, not to mention a very friendly and helpful gentleman.
