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!

yes on the no spaces, and try pasting in the embed code (on the Share tab on YouTube).
I love this late 80's Hunter-Garcia composition. Happy 50th!
Here are a couple new renditions of C.C. Rider and Spoonful. Can't wait for July!
Here's our tune for 2015...we hope you enjoy!
So just to be clear, the tag should be DeadCoversProject with out any spaces, right? Does it need to say 2015 anywhere?
I tried to post my video but it only put the non-linked address in the post, not the video...
What else was I gonna do? I couldn't go anywhere!
Folks, please be sure to tag your videos DeadCoversProject when you upload them. Otherwise the great database in the sky will miss them and so will the judges. No one wants this. Thanks!
This is a little film I shot in Eastbourne in the UK to go with my acoustic version of this classic GD song. http://www.cjmartin.info/index.htm
