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 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, Need a little inspiration? During February, you can also check out an exclusive video playlist featuring a handful of hot submissions at Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube!

Good luck!

for what it's worth

Lots of great music, but I really prefer the ones done by "non-professional musicians," like the Fears Sisters and Roxy. Those were my two favorites! And Facebook sucks, by the way.

HYRYDER would like to say "Thank you...for a real good time!"

HYRYDER would sincerely like to thank Dead.Net and the Dead Covers Project for allowing us the oppurtunity to be involved in the 2013 competition! It is a great honor and a dream come true! This year's DCP has been an amazing showcase of all the very talented artists in this country and around the world who are helping to keep this musical tradition alive and it is a beautiful thing! We are deeply honored to have been a part of it this year.

I don't facebook (and wont' Big Bro!) but wanted to let it be known that this is a favorite. Lot of talent in there. Drummer is silky smooth. Good voice. Good vibe. Great video! Loved it and would love to see more of those guys. Made me feel like I would like to hang out with them too; really great video!
