Thursday, December 16th, 2021

Plant Riverside District – Savannah's most exciting destination for dining, shopping and live entertainment located at 400 W. River St. – is delighted to announce the addition of accomplished magician David Jowers to its extensive entertainment offerings. A member of the Society of American Magicians, Jowers serves as Plant Riverside District’s Resident Magician, performing live magic shows and strolling magic performances throughout the property.  

“Plant Riverside District is truly Savannah’s Entertainment District, so we thought it was only fitting to have a talented, world-class magician like David Jowers on-site to entertain our guests,” said Tyler Gray, Director of Entertainment at JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District. “We’re confident that David’s mind-blowing magic skills will quickly become a can’t-miss favorite among locals and visitors.”

Specializing in close-up magic with everyday objects rather than large-scale illusions, Jowers has appeared on VH1’s Celebracadabra, performed at Caroline’s on Broadway and been featured on the Food Network alongside famed chef Rachael Ray. He also performed at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas as part of the launch of former professional wrestler and television personality Hulk Hogan’s gaming machine Hulkamania.

A talented magician and entertainer, Jowers was featured in South magazine’s Faces of the South in 2020 and has a true passion for magic. He began practicing magic at the age of five after a routine tonsillectomy went awry, leaving him unable to speak. Jowers used magic to express himself and overcome his shy nature.

Jowers performs magic regularly at Plant Riverside District and is typically on-site Wednesday through Saturday from 6-10 p.m., performing free strolling magic throughout Savannah’s Entertainment District.
