Deadwood Mountain Grand offers free Jim Messina tickets to veterans

DEADWOOD, S.D. – In honor of Veterans Day, the Deadwood Mountain Grand has set aside a limited number of free tickets for military personnel to see Jim Messina in concert Sunday at 8 p.m. If you have served in the military, either past or present, you can stop by the Company Store to receive a pair of tickets.

Guitarist Jim Messina began working with the band Buffalo Springfield in 1966 as a recording engineer. He then replaced Bruce Palmer, the bass player, touring and recording with the band.

In 1968 Messina formed Poco (originally named “Pogo” after the famous comic strip character) with fellow Buffalo Springfield member Richie Furay. The band’s 1969 debut “Pickin’ Up The Pieces” is said to have been the blueprint for the then-new musical genre, uniting country with rock music.

Messina worked with Kenny Loggins for several years, selling 16 million albums.

To get your free Jim Messina tickets, simply show a military ID at the Company Store in Deadwood Mountain Grand. For more information, visit or call 605-559-1188.
