Next weekend’s grand opening of Ellefson Coffee Company’s first brick and mortar store keeps growing.
The festivities for next weekend’s grand opening of Ellefson Coffee Company’s Jackson, MN store now include performances by two more acts. Kik Tracee/Zen From Mars vocalist Stephen Shareaux and Bang Tango/Zen From Mars guitarist Drew Fortier will perform at the store throughout the weekend. The duo will perform songs from Kik Tracee and Zen From Mars over the weekend.
Also added to the weekend’s festivities is Bryn Arens, front man of beloved local Minneapolis-based band FLIPP. Arens, Shareaux and Fortier are just the latest additions to next weekend’s grand opening celebration. Local Jackson, MN-based stock car racer Luke Sathoff’s Ellefson Coffee Company-sponsored car will be on display at the store throughout the weekend, too.
The newly noted additions to next weekend’s festivities join already announced celebrities That Metal Show co-host Don Jamieson and paranormal author and investigator Adrian Lee.
Jamieson will be at the store April 8 while Lee will lead Ellefson and others on an exploration of Loon Lake Cemetery, the local Jackson, MN cemetery that inspired Megadeth’s hit song ‘Mary Jane.’
The permanently displayed “Museum of Deth,” which features artifacts and memorabilia from Ellefson’s personal collection. The items that will be on display include Ellefson’s own high school marching band uniform and memorabilia from other acts including Korn, Machine Head, Max Cavalera and Coal Chamber.
Ellefson said in a recent interview he was looking forward to next weekend’s events.
“As the grand opening draws nearer, it’s amazing to see the excitement build and be able to announce some more killer things we have planned for the grand opening and beyond!,” Ellefson said. “We have people traveling from all over the country to join us in this celebration of all things coffee and metal and we’re going to show them all a great time.”

“The Ellefson Coffee Company store has turned out to be an amazing way for David to have a permanent face in his hometown, while being able to tie in EMP, Jackson, Dean, SIT and everything else in our universe,” Hazaert said. “With the huge sense of Megadeth history in Jackson, we are excited to be able to create a really unique an amazing fan (and coffee) experience that, as predicted, is turning out to not only be a highlight for the people of Jackson, but a destination for Megadeth fans from around the world.”
