Founders Jeremy Davis and Clay Johnson are true southern gentlemen in every sense of the term. In school, they both excelled in band where Jeremy played the saxophone and Clay played the trombone. They continued performing together through high school and into college at Louisiana Tech, and it was there that they began experimenting with different kinds of music – Rhythm & Blues, Rock-N-Roll, Classical, Jazz, Christian, and even Hip Hop. Their fascination with all types of music combined with roots planted firmly in the south and Clay’s gospel background (having been raised by preachers, teachers and gospel singers) led to the founding, and eventual success, of one of the most musically diverse bands in the south: The Fabulous Equinox Orchestra.

Today, the group continues to gain traction and find success as the first “southern big band”. This band is unlike any other, and the terms “orchestra” and “big band” don’t even begin to scrape the surface of all that the group offers.

Performing everything from the toe-tapping, front porch picking sounds of Appalachian Bluegrass to the smooth jazzy sounds of the French Quarter in NOLA; from the roots of country music in Nashville to the pride and glory-filled songs of Texas – this group does it all and pays homage to the culture that raised and inspired them.
