The orchestra performs more than jazz and more than a big band — it puts on a show. Davis describes the band as, “The Rat Pack meets The Dean Martin Variety Show with a touch of A Prairie Home Companion. It's plain to see that we love what we do and we love our fans.”
LAKE CHARLES — Live from Savannah, Ga., raised in the Louisiana Delta and now performing across the nation, Jeremy Davis — and his Fabulous Equinox Jazz Orchestra — will perform a one-of-a-kind, high-energy stage show at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 7, in Burton Coliseum as part of the Banners Cultural Series at McNeese State University.
The performance is co-presented with the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury.
Tickets to the show are $20 for adults, $5 for children and free to McNeese and Sowela students with a valid ID.
Don't expect an ordinary concert or jazz recital. Davis and his orchestra present a musical journey that will surpass their audiences' expectations.

It is no surprise that audiences have turned into devoted fans and the group's success continues to gather momentum considering the band features some of the best entertainers and musicians the industry has to offer.
Davis, the bandleader, is a phenomenal tenor sax player who surrounds himself with the best and most professional musicians. He has the enthusiasm and creativity needed to create a product that wows the young and old alike.
Davis is joined on stage with singer and lifelong friend, Clay Johnson, and together they bring magic to the stage that both entertains and engages their audience. Johnson was born to sing – he was raised in a family of Southern gospel singers.
"We're not your grandfather's big band," stated Davis.
