On Saturday, March 5, 14 bands came together at the John W. Hart Building gym to showcase their musical talents. The styles of the performing groups ranged from punk rock, indie pop, and even classic rock performed on six cellos.

I-Cover is run by BYU-Idaho’s, Talent Activities. The main mission of Talent Activities is to “provide opportunities for students to explore the arts as they discover, develop and share their talents,” according to their website.

“I think it went really well; the performers had a great time,” said Chris Taulbee, director of Talent Activities and a senior studying psychology. “For anyone who is looking to find their own talents, Talent Activities is an awesome way to get involved.”

Some enjoyed rocking to some of the more punk bands, while others preferred the more creative twists of songs, such as Flydown’s version of Adele’s “Hello,” or All Strings Attached (a cello sextuplet) rock mashup.

“All Strings Attached really rocked it,” said Henry Warndahl, a junior studying electrical engineering.

With the fantastic tech crew, the lights and sound made it feel like a real rock concert. Aside from the audience getting that authentic performance, the bands got to have the experience of a lifetime.

“The whole thing was just so great,” said Joseph Kupferer, a member of Yeti Holas and a freshman studying art. “The energy from the audience was amazing.”

Other bands felt similarly.

“That was so much fun feeling like a rockstar,” said Austin Neeley, a member of Noisy Neighbors and a freshman studying biology. “It was incredible to have that portion of my dreams fulfilled.”

The concert was followed by a dance in the gym, making the whole night a rockin’ time.
