Meet your next two best friends – Jeremy Davis and Clay Johnson, along with their fiery hot 11-piece big band! All across North America, audiences have fallen in love with these two sophisticated Southern gentlemen and the high-energy show that is Davis & Johnson Present The Fabulous Equinox Orchestra. Along with the greatest songs, the best original arrangements and phenomenal musicianship, these two bring their rich friendship and charm to the stage. Fashioned in the style and swagger of the legendary entertainers lead by Frank Sinatra, Davis & Johnson are putting their own stamp on the Great American songbook. With a touch of Motown, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Elvis and more, the show offers a freshness and relevance that speaks to every soul.
JEREMY DAVIS, BAND-LEADER, TENOR SAX, VOCALS, “THE KINGPIN”
Louisiana native Jeremy Davis has lead various bands on over 200 shows a year on the road before forming the Equinox Orchestra.

He has performed in conjunction with David Sanborn, Ellis Marsalis, George Clinton, The Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule, The Beach Boys, Col. Bruce Hampton, Derek Trucks, Jennifer Holiday, Fred Wesley, Charice, Ellis Hall, Bill Watrous, Fred Wesley, Wycliffe Gordon, several American Idol alums and many, many more.

They are just crazy enough to homeschool and it’s not unusual for the family to be on the road with the big band!
CLAY JOHNSON, THE VOICE, THE TROMBONE, “MR. SHOWTIME”
Raised in a family of preachers, teachers and Folk/Southern Gospel singers, Clay was born to inspire and entertain. His passion for music performance has developed since childhood over thousands of concerts, musicals and shows on stages from L.A. to NYC, whether volunteering to sing at his children’s school, crooning for the senior citizens center, or singing at festivals, arenas, or sold-out theaters. At the same time, his love for the gospel has taken him all around the U.S. and the world to work with churches and communities as a minister and missionary (i.e., Ukraine, India, and Ethiopia). Clay and his wife find great joy in raising their children and her chihuahua in lovely Savannah, GA.
