SIRI , WHO IS SYLVESTER MARSHALL ?
“ Mr . Brunch and Chill ," according to Google . His events are legendary . They attract those with style , class and expectations for an unforgettable experience .
If you live in Shreveport , you have likely heard about or attended one of his popular events – Brunch ( people added Chill , which he hates ), Rock the Clock , drive-in movies , Sails and Cocktails , and Picnic in the Park and Summer Send Off .
He is currently planning the entertainment for Port City Fest weekend , April 15-17 , in Shreveport-Bossier .
As the senior client relations director for Aveanna , a nationwide pediatric healthcare provider , his home is in New Orleans and his heart is in Shreveport .
How he crisscrosses Louisiana with his day job and manages his event-planning company , Social Circle of Louisiana , is mystifying . Yet , he is intentional about giving minority-owned companies opportunities to shine at his events .
He has this marketing voodoo that dispels racial , socio-economic and other barriers to create a party atmosphere for all .
Though he could abandon Shreveport like others his age for bigger cities , he keeps adding these cultural game changers to Shreveport ’ s entertainment landscape .
Why ? “ It ’ s home ,” he said . “ My friends are here . Shreveport made me who I am . Shreveport has my heart ." LEARN MORE ABOUT PORT CITY FEST
