From the Band
Pike Station is a Pop Rock/Southern Rock/Country/Rhythm & Blues Band out of Louisiana, Missouri. They mix several genres together like Pop, Rock, Blues and Country to make up their sound.

They have opened for several national touring acts such as Sara Evans, Tracy Byrd, Walter Trout, Tab Benoit (The band actually backed Benoit for a show in 2007), Larry McCray, Wayne Baker Brooks, Bernard Allison, Eric Sardinas, Michael Burks, Charlie Love & The Silky Smooth Band, Monte Montgomery, Virginia Coalition, Head East, Eddie Money, Molly Hatchet, and The Kentucky Headhunters. They were featured on KSDK News Channel 5s Summer Concert Series, and have been featured several times on "Medication with Pat Wolfe" on 88.1 KDHX in St. Louis. Their song The Future was ranked ..16 on The Best Songs of 2005 on KDHX.

Pike Station started when Benjamin Cordes started writing songs while in college in St. Louis. Soon enough, he had enough songs to fulfill a dream of having an original music recording. With the help of his brother Tony, cousin Jason Shireman, and his uncle Jeff Davidsmeyer the recording sessions started in 2003 and a year later "Everything In Between" was finished. The title of the record was thought up because it reflected what had happened between Ben’s highschool days to his enrollment in college. The guys played out for a while, changed the line-up around and then took a break but now with the addition of St. Louis bassist Sean Holland. The band currently is playing out as a trio.

Outside of playing in Pike Station, Tony and Ben play in their Dad’s band Country Soul and also do acoustic style performances as well.
