Hundreds crowded into Rock Bottom Brewery for the pre-show sponsor reception. Joining regular show performers like Gov. Mark Dayton, Rep. Tom Emmer, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, singers Maria Jette and Tesfa Wondemagegnehu, were first-timers Mayor Melvin Carter, Mayor Jacob Frey, Minneapolis Council Member Jeremiah Ellison, actor Tyler Michaels and Prairie Fire Lady Choir. Speaker Kurt Daudt, actress Sally Wingert, state Sen. Tom Bakk and others joined in the fun via video. MinnPost contributing photographer Jana Freiband captured the evening.
