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!

non appearing video

Thanks for the help. I have no idea what's gone wrong. I had no problems last year. My video is up on my youtube channel and I've tagged it, I believe, appropriately. It's been pretty frustrating. I'd greatly appreciate any assistance you can offer. The tune is BrokeDown Palace and my channel is under my name, Gordon Wallace. Thanks again...

Check it out! Garcia Birthday Band - "Candyman"

Hey y'all check these guys out and give 'em a thumbs up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFgf4muYj6g&feature=youtu.be

This is their version of Candyman that's deservedly featured on the front page of dead.net today.

They've been honing their sound for many years and kill it every week. Give 'em a listen.

They also have several more videos out on Youtube that are worth your attention.

Cheers!

Once More Unto The Breach!

What do you do when you're NOT in a Grateful Dead Cover Band? Why, you play songs the Grateful Dead Covered!

Can't find my video

I posted my video on youtube yesterday, tagged it "DeadCoversProject", but don't see it up. Am I doing something wrong?
