With trumpets, trombones and saxophones blazing, the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra explodes into the Emma Kelly Theater on August 25 at 7:30 p.m. to kick off the 2018-19 season of the Averitt Center for the Arts.

“It is not a concert,” said Clay Johnson, co-founder and lead singer of the Savannah-based band. “It’s most definitely a show . . . filled with great music, engaging stories and enough entertainment to last a lifetime. It is a 100 percent guarantee that the people who come to our shows will have the time of their lives, leaving with full hearts and cups running over!”

Equinox  is unlike any other, and the terms “orchestra” and “big band” do not begin to scrape the surface of all the group offers. The group’s diverse repertoire covers the songs and sounds that make up Americana and the Southern culture. Everything from jazz, ballads, pop and traditional favorites – this group does it all and pays homage to the culture which raised and inspired them.

 “Even though we may look like a big band, we don't behave like we should,” Johnson said. “We take the audiences on a journey through all their favorites – from Frank Sinatra to Ray Charles, Johnny Cash to Elvis, Motown, gospel, rock and roll and beyond.The Rat Pack meets The Dean Martin Variety Show with a touch of A Prairie Home Companion.”

With their fiery 11-piece band, Johnson and band leader Jeremy Davis have performed across the country – winning audiences with their charm, original arrangements, and phenomenal musicianship. Equinox brings its talent back to the Jan Brown Anderson stage for a one-night only performance.

“We love what we do, and we love our fans,” said Johnson. “It has been nine years since we last played at the Averitt Center . . . we remember such an outpouring of love and support from the Statesboro community, which really left an impression on us and we’ve been eager to get back ever since.”

Tickets are only $25 and can be purchased at www.averittcenterforthearts.org or by calling (912) 212-2787. Performance sponsored by Hodges-Moore Funeral Home.
