Take Cover is a young, tight, energetic, and most importantly ENTERTAINING cover band from the south suburbs of Chicago. We play all kinds of rock from the 50s thru now to keep our audience singing along and enjoying themselves for hours!


Take Cover is a four-piece rock cover band from the Chicagoland area. Our setlist spans the history of rock & roll -- from Elvis to the Beatles to Michael Jackson up through current hits like Kings of Leon, we play it all! We're full of energy and our stage presence is pretty unique because, well, we're just naturally funny folks. Once you've seen our version of "Lightning Crashes," you'll never think of that song the same way again.

Collectively Take Cover has been playing together since 2008 and has the chops and chemistry to entertain any crowd. Individual members have been active in music for decades. As a group, we've played venues like Uncle Fatty's, Underground Lounge, Total Sports of Naperville, Amp Rock Lounge, JJ Kelley's, Bobby McGee's, 115 Bourbon Street, and Tequila Roadhouse. Individually we've graced such venues as America's Roadhouse (Aurora, IL), the Double Door (Chicago, IL), the Canopy Club (Champaign, IL), the Miramar Theater (Milwaukee, WI), the Note (Chicago, IL), O'Malley's (Alsip, IL), and much more.
