Jon Pickett Acoustic

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

Apr 9 @ 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 (?)!

Turning 80 desires a party. We are happy to celebrate the 80 years of The Rock Inn, and there is no better weekend then Earthday Weekend to celebrate, after all we wouldn’t be here if not for RMNP and our Planet.
Live music all weekend from a few of our Rock Inn favorites, Chain Station, Jay Stott, Neal Whitlock, and The Circus of the Dead – Grateful Dead cover band.
Thank You to all who have made The Rock Inn what it is over the last 80 years!

Jay Stott Acoustic

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

Apr 21 @ 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.

Chain Station Mountain Music

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

Apr 22 @ 9:00 pm

Chain Station is a 4-piece, high-energy, get ‘em out on the dance floor string band from Denver, Colorado. Their music is well-steeped in Americana roots, with vocal harmonies that are high, lonesome, and tight. Their picking ranges from lightning-fast to mountain mellow. They are a bluegrass band that would satisfy a picky old-timer and delight fans of newgrass, a delicate balance indeed.
