Change of Planz with Gerald Besant
1st & 3rd Saturday of each month
3:00PM - 4:00PM
Gerald W. Besant II aka GPlanz is a Natchitoches native with a passion for music, culture and people. He is no stranger to success as he is the grandson of the late Clemon Nora the first black mayor of Campti Louisiana. Born into a family of hard workers, Gerald learned the value of having your own at a young age. He began work at an early age and continued to work and put himself through college. He broke generational barriers by being the first in his immediate family to graduate from college with a business administration degree. He then obtained a job with the city of Natchitoches shortly after as a tax assessor. During his tenure, he has assisted many people as well as received his certification.
In his free time, Gerald enjoys investing into his own personal brand. After years of brainstorming, ChangeOfPlanz was launched in March of 2016. This multifaceted brand has given numerous artists a platform to promote their music and/or business. ChangeOfPlanz has also been responsible for hosting a back to school free haircut drive. Gerald has also sat down and interviewed artists. While his catalogue is extensive with names such as Cal Boy (rapper), Mr Hankey (producer), he still remains humble and continues to show love to his home state of Louisiana and gives younger artists an opportunity to showcase their talents to work.
Gerald believes in the power of hard work and staying humble and he always encourages people to be the best versions of themselves.
