About the band

There is something about this band that is exponential. You sense the vibe right away and feel the family growing and becoming a truly beautiful thing from show to show. Covert formed in 2002, added two members in March 2003 and played a whopping 100 shows in 2006. Every show is bigger and better and one can only imagine what Covert Ops will be doing next. It..s the kind of thing that makes you glad you exist and helps you appreciate times of celebration. Their music is the catalyst - celebrate, dance and BE YOU

The band is a five piece centered on a three-brother core consisting of Derek, Damon and Kedree Young. All three brothers are singer/songwriters. They grew up on Covert Road and grew up gospel! Drawing largely on three-part gospel harmony, they bring a refreshing change from the vocally challenged bands of yesterday. All three brothers play multiple instruments too, so it's not surprising to see them change things up from time to time. Its quite awesome to see how they become one on stage

On bass guitar, Alastair Nix has impeccable talent and grooves it in to your bones. He is a large reason why people leave shows soaked from head to toe and consider Covert Ops their own personal ..weight loss program... Thankfully, Al is also very handy with the soldering iron and is a backbone of Covert Operations

Dallas Barr is the fourth singer/songwriter in the band and has such a quirky side to it all. Dallas for the most part of the night paints pretty pictures and melts your face with his electric guitars and tone to the bone. People say Dallas is their favorite to watch..oh those facial expressions and frontal flashes

Erik Bengston is the silent 6th member of Covert Operations and has to be the most awesome soul on planet Earth right now. During shows he is at the helm of our Sound and Light, drives the van and trailer to gigs, designs all the art and text placement on the Covert Flyers, and most of all REALLY CARES

Jake does our official website when he is not sky diving, four wheeling, snake hunting or partying...Thanks a million

Covert Operations gear is pro and can provide an incredible sound system and light show! The band has been told numerous times that their sound is unique, unmistakable and even ..cutting edge..! Their first album (self titled) was completed the summer of 2005 right before they played at the amazing 10,000 Lakes Music Festival in Minnesota. They really enjoyed sharing the festival with amazing acts like Trey, Les Claypool, Widespread, Buckethead and Cyro Baptista! Covert has played many other festivals and this is really the direction the band wants to follow. Covert has built up quite a vault of live recordings and will be putting some together to sell., an awesome website that hosts live music recordings for all to download) really needs to be updated by the way! GEEZE

As of late, Covert Operations has been putting larger shows together, renting out halls and theaters and packing fans in. When you see ..Covert Party.. on the schedule, you will know that all the stops are being pulled. It will be the show of shows and the party wont stop when the music does. Book your Hotel Room and party WITH YOUR FAMILY

One last thing! The band would like to wish the awesome Marc Dixon good luck in his new band Harper. Marc played with Covert Operations for over three years (actually his first show was also Dallas Barr..s first show) and Marc..s last show was at the Walleys Banquet Center NYE show on 12.29.06. He is currently touring the US this year and has hopes for an even larger tour next year! This kid has the fire in him.

Peace and God bless
