Audiences have fallen in love with Jeremy Davis and Clay Johnson and The Fabulous Equinox Little Big Band. Along with the greatest songs, the best original arrangements and phenomenal musicianship, these two bring their rich friendship and charm to the stage. Big Band for a new generation!
Louisiana native Jeremy Davis has lead various bands on over 200 shows a year on the road before forming Equinox. Jeremy’s groups have been featured at festivals, theaters and venues all across the country. 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. Jeremy and his beautiful wife Meredith have been blessed with three children — Leighton, Madden, and Miller Davis.
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.
