Jon Pickett Acoustic

Nov 24 @ 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 (?)!

Child’s Play Folk Rock band

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

Dec 6 @ 8:00 pm

Steve has performed both in bands and as a single act for over 40 years, playing acoustic 6 and 12 string guitar, resonator slide guitar, some mandolin and banjo. Becky has sung since early school years and continues to lend her beautiful voice to not only our group, but to the local Mountainaires choir in Estes Park. Jake has been a musical performer since childhood playing drums and singing with “The Shimon Family” on many tours of the midwest in his early years. After moving to Colorado, he and his brothers formed the popular “Whitewater Brothers Band” and later, “True North” and local favorite “Country Time”. Fred stared out back east as a drummer with several bands through his early years, switched to bass after moving to Colorado, and has played with several northern Colorado groups. His girlfriend “Matilda”, the stand-up bass, holds up the foundation of the band. Kirk comes from a gospel and bluegrass background and adds a new dimension to the sound of ChildsPlay with his fine guitar pickin’.

That is a long-winded path to answering the question of “What kind of music do you play?” As you can see, the band’s members come from many musical backgrounds. We call our musical offering “dirt road folk”. Music you’d expect to hear down the road at your friend’s house, or coming from the radio while you work on your car, or clean the house. There is no particular genre of music that we prefer. We think folks love all kinds of music, and we try to provide a mix of genres that represents a little of everything. You won’t hear much top 40 from our band; but, you will hear stuff from many varied artists that you don’t get to hear from other groups. Some old country, some classic rock, some old and new bluegrass. Examples are: If I Had A Boat by Lyle Lovett (written by Guy Clark), I Don’t Believe You’ve Met My Baby by the Louvin Brothers (circa 50’s), several of Dan Fogelberg’s lesser known songs, Have Mercy by The Steep Canyon Rangers, The Wrestler by Bruce Springsteen. You get the idea!

We’re always on the look-out for new songs to add to our set lists. You may not hear the same songs at any two shows. We hope you will give us a listen and enjoy what you hear!

Sarah Caton Acoustic

Dec 14 @ 5:00 pm

This rootsy singer songwriter has a voice like birds flying out of a canyon, gliding with incredible range, expression and depth, straight into the heart of her listeners. She takes the stage authentically on a no-holds-barred mission to honor truth without fear, beckoning others to join her and leave aside regret, come find redemption along the way. Interweaving tales of human experience with humor, insight and unflinching vulnerability.

Sarah started taking classical piano lessons at age six, then at sixteen became the pianist in her father’s church–a church smack dab in the middle of Utah, in a town that had exactly zero stoplights and a whole lotta cowboys, coal miners, truck drivers and Mormons. It was just a gas station on the map to the rest of the world, but her parents dedicated their lives to building a church there, steering lost souls from the brink of hell and raising their five children completely sheltered from the modern world.

But Sarah’s salvation wasn’t found in religion, she stumbled upon it whilst tickling the ivories under the spell of Rachmoninoff and Chopin. Or maybe it was the desert that saved her; the dry, dusty hills where she’d wander and wonder with her brother, and hatch survivalist plots just in case the deal with Jesus about the rapture fell through. At age twenty one, well-trained in music theory but completely ignorant of popular music, it finally came into her life: Music, real music. Her soul ran away with the blues and she found kinship with folksingers, especially their protest songs, it was like she’d known Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin her whole life. She began borrowing twenty CD’s at a time from the library, in every genre they had, and soon, disappeared down a rabbit hole, purchasing a guitar so she could learn to sing and play like these new heroes, Etta James, Patty Griffin, Gillian Welch, Ben Harper, Tracy Chapman and so many more.

She still plays that little Alvarez guitar and carries out her search for truth under the beautiful skies of Colorado and as far as anyone knows she hasn’t come out of the rabbit hole yet.
