Grateful Dead

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!

Good luck!

YouTube video ro MP3 conversion!

I have found the same issues using Safari on Mac. Firefox solved all my problems, too!

By the way, I have found some awesome musical nuggets among the videos here and found a way to convert them to MP3 for my iPod so I can listen in my car. The URL below will get you there.

I will be adding some of the Covers Project music permanently to my iPod!

Some beta on uploading

After a whole lot of head scratching I figured out that if you're on a Mac, don't use Safari, it just won't work as it should. As soon as I tried Firefox everything got easy.

It's awfully long but that's the way they wrote it.

A Tribute to the Life of Jerry Garcia

This song is also dedicated to all the loved ones we have lost along the way.

Though not technically a cover, I hope it can be included in the Covers Project.

Sunshine Daydream on a Saturday Night,
