About Coburn Station

Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, Coburn Station is dedicated to filling the mountains with cosmic vibrations via a soulful blend of rock n' roll, groove, and psychedelia. With a knack for live improvisation, Coburn Station comes alive with the energy and spirit of the Sierras. The music pays tribute to the rockers of days past while incorporating elements that are new and powerful.

Showcasing the bands maturation is “Rusted Rose / This River,” Coburn Station’s two-Single release in December of 2022. Both tracks were recorded by Alexander Korostinsky of The Sextones at Archive Group Studios in Reno, NV. Also check out Coburn's debut LP, "Coming Home", which has become a local rock triumph. Consisting of 11 original tracks, the album displays a diverse blend of genres, which the band has dubbed "Mountain Rock". Look out for Coburn's follow up LP in 2024!

"North Lake Tahoe based Coburn Station - If you haven't heard this band, we recommend giving them a listen. The sound is jamband-ish — the 'ish' is due to the band's ability to pay homage to a classic sound while owning it in its own right.

The members of Coburn Station bill their music as 'Mountain Rock'. 'It’s just the energy, I think,' said Dan McAlister, guitarist and lead vocalist. 'You live in the mountains. There’s a way of going about your every day that kind of informs your taste, your outlook, your perception of the world. It’s just mountain living, and we’re a product of it—and it’s rock n' roll'.

It most certainly is rock n’ roll, although not of any particular flavor. And, in a way, that’s another aspect of Coburn Station’s sound that qualifies it as mountain rock. It’s a mix of blues, folk and psychedelia that speaks to different regional influences. It’s the product of a resort town, a 'mountain town'—and like its creators and so many others who visit and live in Truckee—the music has roots elsewhere."

- Tahoe Magazine

In 1865 a man named S.S. Coburn operated a stage station and public house for teamsters further east from the Donner Lake camp, aptly named "Coburn's Station." The present day site of Coburn's Station is the train depot in downtown Truckee, California. But before April 12, 1868, when the name was officially changed to Truckee, our quaint mountain-lumber town was Coburn's Station. The place had a life and energy of it's own; one that had never been witnessed before, and hasn't since. Coburn himself was apparently a smith; an indispensable craftsman of the era who arrived from Dutch Flat with knowledge of the exact route of the proposed railroad. It just so happens he was also a music man. When the Central Pacific rails began their ascent into the Sierra Foothills, Coburn’s Station was selected as the advance camp for the railroad construction crews. Workmen poured into the area and the settlement grew into a bustling lumber town. With the influx of workers and travelers, S.S. Coburn regularly played music for his men at Coburn Station. As the town grew, so did the scene. The massive music parties involved whiskey, wine, and weed (strong stuff provided by Chief Trokay himself) and dancing into the wee hours of the night. The music was new, and powerful, as big as the Redwoods and as sharp as the saws that laid them. By December 1867, the first excursion train neared Donner Summit. Despite severe winter storms, a forty-ton locomotive named “San Mateo” was pulled and hauled in pieces on sleighs safely to Coburn Station. This special event sparked Coburn's most extravagant celebration yet. That night, the spirit of the locomotive took control of the music, and the railroad workers danced hard, and they danced well. Coburn Station came alive with the energy and spirit of all the pines that had been jacked to lumber, all the men that had laid the rail, and all the locomotives that would run it's tracks from this day forward. In the midst of the magical jam, Coburn's guitar started to glow with heat, as bright as burning coal. The music soared and the people raged. And as the music of Coburn's soul was floating over the sage and Sierras, Coburn yelled to his fleet, "Let there be music as strong and hot as a steam engine! It will melt your face!" And melt faces it did. Coburn Station is a band dedicated to this idea, this great man, and the night the music took control, and melted the face's of those men. Thank you S.S. Coburn. This jam is for you. Keepin' Tahoe Rockin'
