Covert formed in 2002 and hails from Flint, Michigan. The band has a fantastic live show and plays all over the Midwest with loyal fans at every stop! Covert plays 3 minute rips to 20 minute jams and reads the crowd like a book. One heck of a light and sound synchronization, this is what great live music is all about.
The band is built around 5 great guys and their passion for music. With the 3rd album in the mixing stages and T-shirts flying off the table, this season is going to explode! Get involved with this group!
Covert is touring with a van and trailer so please make sure parking is available. The band is also working toward a bio-diesel mode of transport with the focus on all things green.
Covert Productions is the band's production company. They produce events and festivals on their own or in conjunction with promoters. Please consider Covert if you are needing pro sound and light for a weekend festival, for example. They're all about grass roots family.
Dallas, Alastair, Kedree, Matt and Dave thank you for your consideration. Hire them for the closing set at the best event you've ever had and they will blow your minds. Guaranteed! It happens every time!

Covert Operations, a five-piece band based out of Flint, Mich., released their newest album, “Mind’s Eye,” on Sept. 24 as a direct digital download.
Each track is remarkably different and weaves together different genres of music into a constantly changing, but always danceable compilation of music.
Covert’s music is rock ‘n’ roll shaped with influences ranging from funk and bluegrass to gospel and soul, and their live performances always consist of lengthy sets with instrumental improvisation.
The latest album, “Mind’s Eye,” begins with a track titled “Zone Room” and starts the album off with their take on modern reggae jams.
“The Best,” the fourth track, consists of fast-paced bluegrass that blends well with the melodious voice of Kedree Young, the guitarist and vocalist in this tune.
The album continues with “Catch 22,” the sixth track, and again brings together the style of reggae music with a lengthy jam entrance into a Latin-sounding, salsa mixture. It invokes a feeling of innovation to the music scene guided by the creativity of Dallas Barr, the other guitarist; Kedree Young, vocalist; Derek Young, keys; Matt Burgie on drums; and Alastair Nix on bass guitar.
