Great Local Bands & Artists

A Community Event for All

How it Started

Music in Mears was founded in 2004 by Brian Horst (Details Style Lab) and Kyle Johnson (Top Tier Athletes). The series that started with just 4 shows in September grew to 12 weeks in 2006 and continues to add to the excitement of living, working or playing in Downtown St. Paul! Brian Horst has continued to be the driving force behind the series. In 2009, Brian Horst brought in Clint Roberts (One Simple Plan) and his knowledge of the local music scene and marketing expertise and Paul Kaelble (Subway/Zantigo) has been blending the sweet sounds for the series since 2006. Music in Mears has truly blossomed and continues to see bigger crowds and receive numerous accolades. In 2017 Brian formed B Horst Prodcutions to help facilitate the expanded summer schedule that now includes Rhythm in Rice (Fridays) Performances in Pedro (Wednesdays) and Kellogg Craft Beer Overlook (Tues-Fri happy hours)
Thanks to everyone that makes this series a success!

Show Your Support

While we love bringing these free shows to the lowertown community, we spend a great deal of time and energy into gathering sponsors and writing grants to cover the band and operating budget. We ask that you to consider making a tax deductible contribution through an online fundraising site on Razoo. Every dollar makes a big impact on the grassroots series and we appreciate the support!
