Neal Whitlock Acoustic

Aug 16 @ 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.

Jon Pickett(chain station) Acoustic

Aug 17 @ 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 (?)!

Jason Walsmith(The NADAS) Acoustic

Aug 19 @ 5:00 pm

TRAVELING IN OUR STORYTELLER OVERLAND MODE 4X4
A “Racontourist” is a person who tells stories in a skillful and amusing way while traveling for pleasure. Beginning July 2020 we’ve been leaning into our racontourist lifestyle, and yes we made that word up, a beautiful mish mash of two words we are very fond of. First, “raconteur” is a person who tells anecdotes in a skillful and amusing way. And of course, “tourist” – a person who is traveling or visiting a place for pleasure. We have played backyards, ranches, rooftops, driveways, decks, docks, beaches, poolsides, front porches and back porches. In less than a year we travelled to 32 states, clocking 45,000 miles, 104 nights and 72 shows with our @storytelleroverland van 🚐🖤✌️
Jason has spent the last 28 years living the racontourist lifestyle as the co-lead singer of his band, The Nadas. Throughout his music career he has been the proud owner of sixteen different tour vehicles – everything from a 77 Dodge Xplorer Van to an Eagle bus previously owned by Meatloaf.

Jason Walsmith is a founding member and principal singer/songwriter of the Iowa based band The Nadas. He has toured the country for 25 years playing shows from Key West to Seattle, San Diego to Maine as well the occasional shows internationally in places such as Mexico, Canada and even Beijing China. Walsmith is known for his storytelling and heartfelt portraits of people and places in song. His solo performances range from intimate introspective songs to stomp and clap burners that keep the audience engaged and wondering what comes next. He is at home in the corner of a small cafe in a dark alley or on the big stage in a festival setting as well as live broadcast opportunities. Walsmith is available as a solo performer, or with additional backing musicians up to a full band format.

Jay Stott Acoustic

@ The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern

Aug 29 @ 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

Sep 18 @ 8:00 pm

Chain Station is a 4-piece, high-energy, get ‘em out on the dance floor string band born high in the mountains but based in 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. A bluegrass band that would satisfy a picky old-timer and delight fans of newgrass, a delicate balance indeed.
In the summer of 2006, Alex Thoele and Jon Pickett met while playing guitars around a campfire, high on a mountaintop in Estes Park, CO. The two have been entertaining and writing music since. In 2010, they were joined by mandolin player and fellow midwesterner, Jarett Mason, and shortly after by James Weatherly, the band’s only Colorado native, on banjo.
They’ve become known for winning over crowds with creative, fun original songs that flow from the mountains, through them and right back to you. Pure Mountain Music! It’s obvious these guys love what they do, engaging their growing fan base with insane energy and stage antics that guarantee one hell of a fun show.

Studio album #3 spring 2018 to follow the latest album “Where I want To Be” October, 2016. In 2015 a live album “Chain Up Volume 1” was released and the debut studio album “Dancin’ With the Law” hit the scene in 2013. Chain Station has directly supported bands such as The Del McCoury Band, The Devil Makes Three, The Travelin’ McCourys, The Jeff Austin Band, Sierra Hull, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, Todd Snider, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Trout Steak Revival, The Railsplitters, Fruition, Hot Buttered Rum, Deadphish Orchestra and many more.

This band has been living life through music and adventures together for more than six years. Relentless gigging in their home state of Colorado, the mountain west and the midwest has made this band of brothers one of the tightest and most professional little ragtag pack of muppets on the scene today.
