The Grainstore is delighted to present an exclusive performance by Equinox, a jazz quintet based in the Netherlands, featuring top American vocalist Marjorie Barnes.
Born and raised in New York City, Marjorie has done it all - from jazz to soul, R&B, Broadway and back.  In a long and varied career, she has sung with legends such as Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Mel Lewis and many others.

The meeting between Equinox and Marjorie Barnes is done in a true collaborative spirit, with the band’s signature sound acting as a platform for tailor made arrangements that perfectly fit Marjorie’s unique vocal gifts.  While Equinox also remain focused on the instrumental interplay for which they are known, Marjorie brings an emotional and dynamic depth to the band’s live shows which makes for a fully engaging concert experience.
