The Dead Covers Project
Whether you play just like Jerry or like to give the Grateful Dead's beloved classics a unique spin, the 2014 Dead Covers Project wants you! We're calling all musicians - near and far - to share their love for the music and magic of the Dead through video. Show off your musical chops and you just might find yourself front and center on Dead.net during the month of February! The rules are simple - all video submissions must contain a song either written by or recorded by the Dead. How that song is interpreted, however, is entirely up to you.
Upload your video to YouTube, tag it "DeadCoversProject," and we'll make it available to view on the band's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/gratefuldead. Need a little inspiration? During February, you can also check out an exclusive video playlist featuring a handful of hot submissions at www.facebook.com/gratefuldead. Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube!
TODAY'S FEATURED VIDEO
...but I think this kind of illustrates my point about the difficulty for the average surfer to locate and enjoy the Dead Covers Project videos here. If someone doesn't stumble across this link you posted here, they will never find it. What happened to the link from the home page of Dead.net?
Again, thanks to those who are involved in the project for making it happen. There just seems to be some room for improvement.
Ask and answer: http://www.dead.net/bracket/
What happened to the Dead Covers Project bracket? It was there, now it's gone. There was a link on the home page of Dead.net; now it's gone. Kinda disappointed at how the Covers Project videos are so difficult to access.
I love what you've done with the Covers Project, the bracket, the voting and everything! Looking forward to watching the voting progress.
Loved watching the many videos over the past couple months. Thanks to everyone who makes this roll! Proper accolades are due!
All the years combine; melt into a dream.
Very nice, gentlemen. I'd vote for your Birdsong cover.
