The Fabulous Equinox Orchestra at Appalachian Theatre Memorial Day Weekend

The Fabulous Equinox Orchestra kicks-off Memorial Day Weekend
in the High Country

BOONE, NC – Appalachian Theatre of the High Country honors Memorial Day with a concert
featuring the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra on Friday, May 26 at 7:30 p.m. The theatre will host
the highly sought after big band who will perform their arrangements of patriotic numbers and
favorite tunes from the Great American Songbook.

Audiences across America and worldwide have fallen in love with the two sophisticated Southern
gentlemen who lead the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra and bring their rich camaraderie and
charm to the stage. Their high-energy show features the greatest songs, the best original
arrangements and phenomenal musicianship.

Inspired by the style and swagger of legendary entertainers like Frank, Dean and Sammy,
Jeremy “The Kingpin” Davis and Clay “Mr. Showtime” Johnson make an impact with favorite
melodies from recent history. Their musical recipe includes a dash of Motown, a shot of country,
some folk and rock sprinkled on top, blended with musical back stories resulting in a musical
banquet that feeds every soul.

The Louisiana via Savannah-based band has been featured in a two-hour PBS special, as
guests on HuckabeeTV, and continues to perform extensively across the country. The pandemic
provided an opportunity for the group to create weekly virtual concerts, write and record new
music including four original songs featured in the film, “Courting Mom and Dad.”
Broadway World described the group as, “…a fiery hot and soulful Southern big band that is the
‘Hope Diamond’ of entertainment. That is to say, there is only one and it’s spectacular!… This is
Great American Music at its finest.”

Reserved seats for this event are priced at $35 for adults and $15 for students. Tickets are
available through App Theatre’s online ticketing system, which is accessible 24/7, or by calling
the box office at (828) 865-3000 during box office hours. Customers can avoid online service

About the Appalachian Theatre
The mission of the Appalachian Theatre of the High Country is to revitalize and sustain this historic community
touchstone as a quality home for diverse artists and audiences with a special focus on programs that celebrate our
distinctive Appalachian heritage and enhance our capacity to serve as an economic catalyst for Boone and the High
Country. Once a gorgeous 999-seat Art Deco movie house, the building closed in 2007 and sat empty and gutted
for years. On October 14, 2019, the Appalachian Theatre reopened its doors after a $10 million renovation that
brought the distinctive Art Deco details back to this historic theatre and created a new 629-seat, state-of-the-art,
acoustically pristine venue for live concerts, films, plays, and dance performances. The historic Appalachian Theatre
has entertained regional audiences in the heart of downtown Boone, NC since 1938.
