Chain Station is a 4-piece, high-energy, get 'em out on the dance floor string band from the front range of Colorado's Rocky Mountains. They've become known for catchy and lyrically-poignant original songs that flow from the mountains, through them and right back to you! Pure Mountain Music!

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. Live shows have become that of legend, with energy and stage antics that guarantee one hell of a night out. Equally comfortable rocking a concert hall, a packed club, or a mountain holler, this band gets after it...with style. 

The boys— Alex Thoele on guitar and vocals, Jarett Mason on mandolin and vocals, Jon Pickett on bass and vocals, and James Weatherly on banjo— will enter the studio in the winter of 2015 to record a second full-length studio project to follow up "Dancin’ With the Law." Chain Station also released a live album in July of 2015, "Chain Up: Volume I" - available exclusively at live shows. The group has warmed up for notables the Travelin’ McCourys, The Devil Makes Three and Todd Snider.
