Jay Roemer is the face of original, acoustic Americana and Bluegrass in the Colorado mountain town of Steamboat Springs. Jay first started turning heads in the state he calls home as the front man/songwriter for the band, Old Town Pickers.

Neal is originally from Rossville, Indiana, where he grew up an athlete. “Sports totally preoccupied my time” until college at Purdue, he said: “It’s a Big 10 school and I wasn’t good enough to play there!” So, he joined his brother Trent, and a few others who played in a band with him, and taught himself the kind of music he wanted to play.
Dec 21 @ 8:00 pm
Bonfire Dub plays a deep and powerful blend of roots music — original songs with rich melodies, featuring down tempo, acoustic laced and electric steel driven reggae, folk and dub. Bonfire’s lyrical repertoire is inspired from eastern philosophy, indigenous struggles, political injustice, international relief efforts and a deep respect for the soul of love and the balance of nature. Bonfire’s founder, Scotty Stoughton, interweaves stories of hope and struggle, derived from his humanitarian aid experiences in regions such as Central America and Haiti.
Dec 22 @ 6:00 pm
Born in Dayton, OH and now calling Estes Park, CO home-base Jon grew up playing guitar in a high school metal band! Lots has happened since those cherished days. Now he feels equally comfortable playing guitar, bass (electric and upright) and drums as well as lead and harmony vocals. After college he migrated to Colorado and this mountain music atmosphere helped merge all of his musical influences (folk, hip-hop, metal, jazz, bluegrass, Motown and Weird Al ; ) into what’s currently happening… Chain Station and his solo singer/songwriter/one-man-band performances. Jon is an born entertainer and you can expect to hear anything from his soulful originals to Paul Simon, The Steeldrivers, Taj Mahal, and expet the unexpeted..like Black Sabbath, Salt & Peppa, Kermit the Frog and Paula Abdul (?)!

Open 7 days a week at 4pm
Built in 1937 as a dance hall for the Big Band Era, The Rock Inn continues to be a lively gathering place with local flair. In the winter, our two wood-burning stoves keep the room toasty for folks stopping in for a beer or a bite after playing in Rocky Mountain National Park. During the summer season we enjoy stunning continental divide views from our outdoor dining patio.
Our menu is an ever evolving blend of hand-crafted, hearty comfort food with a health and planet conscious twist. We aim to fill you up with goodness so you can get back to enjoying the mountains again tomorrow. We feature Certified Angus Beef, All-Natural Colorado chicken, fresh salads, whole grains, organic teas and coffees, local beers, sustainable produced wines, and a full bar.
On frequent Fridays after dinner, we set-up one of many original Colorado bands on our nearly 80 year old stage, clear the dance floor and boogie all night. During the summer time, acoustic music acts play most other nights of the week, Sunday nights are a mellower feeling as we host acoustic Colorado songwriters during dinner. You might catch Jon Pickett, Alex Thoele, KC Groves, Follow the Fox, Jay Roemer, David Potter, Sean Flynn, Jay Stott, or Terry Kishiyama and Ash Ganley. We also offer a great open bluegrass pick on Thursday during the winter months, lead by a few talented local musicians, either joining in on the pick or just sitting back and enjoying the bluegrass, these are funny nights of music.
We look forward to having you join us. Reservations are not accepted, however if you want to give us a call (970-586-4116) when you are on your way we will be happy to get a table ready for you or put you on the list. During the off-season there is rarely a wait. In July, August, and September it is best to get here before 6pm.
We open at 4 pm daily. Our closing hours vary with the season and weather.
Take-out is available. We do not use any Styrofoam containers. 970-586-4116.
