Alex Thoele(chain station) Acoustic

Aug 8 @ 5:00 pm
Jon Pickett(chain station) Acoustic

Aug 9 @ 5:00 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 Black Sabbath, Salt & Peppa, Kermit the Frog and Paula Abdul (?)!

Geoff Clark Acoustic

Aug 10 @ 5:00 pm

Geoff Clark is a guitarist and songwriter living in Estes Park, Colorado. He blends Americana, Alt-Country, Folk, and Rock into a unique style of his own. He peppers in a few Irish drinking songs to encourage a jovial and lively atmosphere at his gigs.

His eclectic musical tastes stem from growing up in a musical family in southeastern Louisiana. He began playing guitar at the age of twelve, and has played in a variety of bands in New Orleans and Washington DC.  Now his solo guitar and vocal stylings entertain crowds across Colorado.

Random and True Acoustic Duo

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

Aug 12 @ 5:00 pm

Random and True is Geoff Clark on lead vocals and acoustic guitar with Steve Tice on harmony vocals and upright bass

Random and True plays an eclectic mix of covers ranging from the 1950s to today. You might hear them play a song originally by Louis Armstrong followed by a song written by Tyler Childers. They’ll go from Frank Sinatra to the Grateful Dead and then from Elton John to The Devil Makes Three. They might even play an Irish drinking song or two to help you enjoy that Guinness or a shot of Jameson! Regardless of the song, they find a way to create an arrangement that incorporates harmonizing vocals mixed with acoustic tones that are the perfect accompaniment to a great dinner at the Rock Inn

Greg Miles Acoustic

Aug 14 @ 6:00 pm

Estes Park visual artist and singer/songwriter Greg Miles was born on the island of misfit toys and raised by wolves. This had a profound effect on the work he produces – much of it unorthodox, irreverent, and contrarian. His original tunes are often tongue in cheek, with an air of sarcasm. Otherwise, he covers everything from John Prine to Nat King Cole; Townes Van Zandt to The Spice Girls (ok, not really . . . ); from blues to torch songs, and from 16th century liturgical to mexican ballads . . . depending, of course, on his audience and what type of rotten fruit they are throwing . . .

Built in 1937 as a sandwich shop at the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, and the addition (which is now our dining room and stage) built in 1943 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 The 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 Gold Canyon Natural Gourmet Angus Beef, All-Natural Colorado chicken, fresh salads, whole grains, organic teas and coffees, local beers, sustainably produced wines, and a full bar.
