Jeremy Messersmith is a beloved Minnesota musician who has filled large concert halls and has brought soulful music to the homes of many friends. He is a indie-rock, songster heard frequently on 89.3 The Current and has been featured on NPR's Tiny Desks. Jeremy's music is beautiful and always memorable, and he will be singing his own acoustic tunes.

We invite you to join us for a perfect summer night at the historic River Rats building in downtown Stillwater on the corner of 2nd and Olive. We ask for your potluck participation for the grazing of harvest garden-fare, showing off your proudest pot or pottery. Wine and beer are welcome, and an array of beverages, cups, flatware, and plates will be supplied by the hosts.
This is an intimate, non-amplified, very cool affair with limited seats. Your ticket covers music, incidental costs and makes room for some complimentary youth tickets provided for future artists. One or two teens will perform uke tunes from JM's Optimistic Collection.

Here are some more details to make this event the best...
Are there minimum age requirements?
All are welcome with a ticket, including kids, especially those with a great appreciation for music!
What's happening and what time?
Doors open at 6:30pm. Dinner begins at 7:00pm. JM starts singing at 8:00pm.
What should I bring again?
This is a potluck buffet. Please bring a seasonal dish to share in your favorite pottery or container. Know that there're no ovens for heating but outlets for crockpots, and plenty of extra hands to manage things for you. We encourage you to bring a label for your dish and indicate if it contains nuts, dairy, meat or is gluten-free. Beer or wine are welcome too.
The hosts will provide the essentials, an array of beverages, cups, flatware, and plates. They'll be supervising the buffet and beverage stations for you to relax and just enjoy friends, music and stellar surroundings!
Is there seating?
Yes! No assigned seats, but plenty of chairs for everyone setup for an intimate performance.
Can I contact the organizer with any questions?
You can email Tony at
