On July 4, “Equinox Orchestra: Tybee Island Swings!” will feature the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra in concert at the Tybee Post Theater. After the concert, the orchestra will lead the audience in a New Orleans-style march to the beach for fireworks.
“It’s going to be a fantastic salute to our veterans and ex-military,” says vocalist Clay Johnson. “We’ll have the 11-piece band in the Tybee Post Theater and do a huge show with the greatest hits of our catalogue and the catalogue of America.
“We’ll close it out with a big New Orleans-style second-line parade down to the beach,” he says. “There will be fireworks on the Fourth.”
