Introducing Marcus McDonald

Welcome to the Charleston Grit family, Marcus. We're happy to have you.

Join us in rolling out the red carpet for our newest contributor, Marcus McDonald. He is the man behind Adesso Entertainment, an arts management company founded to showcase a diverse group of singers, bands, artists and production staff to redefine the arts scene. With a solid footprint established locally after several successful events incorporating live music, fashion and visual art, he has set his sights on expanding his arts management influence to other cities in the region and beyond. Here’s looking at you, Columbia, Atlanta, New Orleans and Philadelphia.  

McDonald is a recent graduate of the College of Charleston who discovered his love of the arts while studying for his finance degree. When he’s not building his arts management empire, he works as a commodity trader at Tides Trading.

His signature events have ranged from art exhibits with live music, to vintage clothing sales, and even a Spoleto Festival event held on a cruise ship. We are thrilled to have him as an arts scene contributor and look forward to sharing his voice with you.
