Byron Marshall: Black Collar Biz
Byron Marshall (BCB) has been writing and performing music for the most part of 15 years. Giving back to the community has been a focus of his and his team at ‘Top Of The Globe’ for quite some time now. In 2011 he performed before an excited crowd at the TLAKollabo AIDS Benefit held in New Jersey. He was received well and that opened the door for other great performances the following year. 2012 was a busy year for Mr. Marshall as far as giving back. In 2012 B.C.B, while ONLY accepting money for travel was blessed with the opportunity to perform at the Jersey Fresh Graffiti Jam, African American Pride Festival, Woodbury Arts Festival & Windows of Soul.
Additionally that year he participated in the ‘Save The Atelier: Telethon”. Black Collar Biz and his soldiers in the S.A.G.E. Coalition are seriously changing lives. The S.A.G.E. Coalition is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in Trenton NJ dedicated to initiating, planning, and establishing inner city beautification projects. Formed in 2012, SAGE Coalition Inc. has its roots in legendary Trenton arts groups such as the Vicious Stylez Crew, SAGE Collective, and the Trenton Atelier. Since then it has grown into a diverse group of visual artists, engineers, fabricators, musicians and teachers dedicated to the rebirth of Trenton and all other struggling urban zones. Our goal is to remind those in economically depressed neighborhoods that unity and pride can thrive through creative problem solving and civic engagement.

Hope to be on a stage near you soon! South Florida please keep the light on.
