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.

Join us for an intimate acoustic set with musician David Potter. David has been playing the guitar since the age of 9 and the banjo since the age of 12. He has been inspired by music icons – Keller Williams, Bela Fleck, Peter Wernick, Earl Scruggs, John Denver, James Taylor, Jimmy Buffet, George Winston, David Wilcox, Leo Kotke, Christopher Parkening, and Segovia.
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.
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 (?)!
