Greg Miles Acoustic

Nov 28 @ 5:00 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 . . .

Jon Pickett(chain station) Acoustic

Dec 2 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 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 (?)!

Jay Stott Acoustic

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

Dec 12 @ 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.

Neal Whitlock Acoustic

Dec 26 @ 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.
