Jay Stott Acoustic

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

Jul 1 @ 6:00 pm

Playing rueful Americana, Jay Stott has been influenced by the diverse stands of his musical upbringing. The blue collar rock sensibility of Springsteen and the mournful tones of Hank Williams era classic country combine with dashes of progressive rock, folk, modern country and traditional blues to make a uniquely American stew of music. A nomad in his early years, Stott graduated from high school in the Midwest, and landed in Colorado in the early nineties, which is where he has resided since then. Picking up a guitar at 14, he brought music with him on a lot of adventures. Eventually the stories, some true and some ‘true,’ started appearing in songs exploring the darker side of life.

An accomplished instrumentalist (mandolin, guitar, bass), vocalist and songwriter, K.C. Groves has been at the heart of many celebrated projects.

Jon Pickett(chain station) Acoustic

Jul 5 @ 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 (?)!

Christine Alice Acoustic

Jul 10 @ 5:00 pm

Christine is an up & coming regional musician performing live and recording original music. Her music has been critically acclaimed by both local musicians and professionals throughout the country. She has killer vocals that will convince you she’s an angel but at the flip of a note can bring the fiery depths from below. The breadth of her music crosses all types of genres from pop, country, alternative, to lo-fi and more. She loves all types of music and puts a creative and impressive spin on her covers. While performing live, she covers a wide assortment of songs from Nirvana, Chris Stapleton, The Cranberries, Post Malone, Billie Eilish, Fleetwood Mac and beyond. She’s guaranteed to play something for everyone. She has been sponsored by White Claw, Modelo, and Blue Moon brewing companies to perform live at bars and restaurants across Northern Colorado.

Christine’s love and passion for music extends past just performing live. Her original score for the short independent film, “Chords” by Emmy Award winning cinematographer John Barnhardt, won Best Original Score in both the Moscow Film Fest & Beaufort International Film Fest. The film was accepted by the LA Shorts Film Festival, making the film eligible to qualify for an Oscar. The film has many accolades and is in film festivals nationally and in cities all over the world. Christine wrote and performed music as well as acted in the film.

On top of all of that, Christine teaches guitar and piano lessons to students of all ages privately and works with The Mathews House to give at risk youth kids lessons. She hosts open mics and jams at different bars around Northern Colorado and joins All Night Train, an Allman Brothers/Tedeschi Trucks Tribute band on stage with her best Susan Tedeschi interpretation.

Christine was born and raised in Fort Collins and the mountains just west of the city. She often claims that she has been singing since the womb. She picked up the guitar while traveling the world as a backpacker. Always loving to sing, she began playing the guitar so she could accompany herself and make music come alive on her own. Seeing Christine Alice live is a spectacular experience and one not to be missed by anyone with an appreciation for a professional voice and a sparkling talent.

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.
