Neal Whitlock Acoustic

Aug 16 @ 5:00 pm

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.

Jon Pickett(chain station) Acoustic

Aug 17 @ 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 unexpeted..like Black Sabbath, Salt & Peppa, Kermit the Frog and Paula Abdul (?)!

Jason Walsmith(The NADAS) Acoustic

TRAVELING IN OUR STORYTELLER OVERLAND MODE 4X4
A “Racontourist” is a person who tells stories in a skillful and amusing way while traveling for pleasure. Beginning July 2020 we’ve been leaning into our racontourist lifestyle, and yes we made that word up, a beautiful mish mash of two words we are very fond of. First, “raconteur” is a person who tells anecdotes in a skillful and amusing way. And of course, “tourist” – a person who is traveling or visiting a place for pleasure. We have played backyards, ranches, rooftops, driveways, decks, docks, beaches, poolsides, front porches and back porches. In less than a year we travelled to 32 states, clocking 45,000 miles, 104 nights and 72 shows with our @storytelleroverland van 🚐🖤✌️
Jason has spent the last 28 years living the racontourist lifestyle as the co-lead singer of his band, The Nadas. Throughout his music career he has been the proud owner of sixteen different tour vehicles – everything from a 77 Dodge Xplorer Van to an Eagle bus previously owned by Meatloaf.

Jason Walsmith is a founding member and principal singer/songwriter of the Iowa based band The Nadas. He has toured the country for 25 years playing shows from Key West to Seattle, San Diego to Maine as well the occasional shows internationally in places such as Mexico, Canada and even Beijing China. Walsmith is known for his storytelling and heartfelt portraits of people and places in song. His solo performances range from intimate introspective songs to stomp and clap burners that keep the audience engaged and wondering what comes next. He is at home in the corner of a small cafe in a dark alley or on the big stage in a festival setting as well as live broadcast opportunities. Walsmith is available as a solo performer, or with additional backing musicians up to a full band format.

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.

We open at 4 pm daily. Our closing hours vary with the season and weather.
