In addition to Uncle Earl, K.C. has released two solo albums of original material, and was a Telluride Troubadour contest finalist and a Detroit Music Award winner.

Jay Stott Acoustic

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

May 4 @ 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.

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 Gold Canyon Natural Angus Beef, All-Natural Colorado chicken, fresh salads, whole grains, organic teas and coffees, local beers, sustainable produced wines, and a full bar.

On occasional nights 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. Some of the bands playing these days include Chain Station, Bonfire Dub, The Jay Roemer Band, Flynn and The Electric Co, We Dream Dawn, Thunder and Rain, KC Groves, and many more.

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, Erik Yates, Erik Oftedahl, Carter SampsonJay Roemer, Andrew Wynne, Sean Flynn, Billy Shaddox, Erin Peet-Lukes, Jay Stott, or Terry Kishiyama and Ash Ganley. We also offer a great open bluegrass pick on Thursday during the winter months, led 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.
