Grateful Dead

The Dead Covers Project 2016

This year's submissions period has ended. Check out all the great performance with the Official 2016 DEAD COVERS PROJECT playlist.

Whether you play just like Jerry or like to give the Grateful Dead's beloved classics a unique spin, the 2016 Dead Covers Project wants you! We're calling all musicians - near and far - to share your 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, Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube.

Good luck!

Good Lovin' Cover

The Grateful Dead covered Chester "Rub-a-Dub" Johnson's version of Good Lovin' at the Aardvark Speedway in Toadsuck, Arkansas in 1977. This is a cover version of that legendary cover version.

Here's another one for submission. Brent doesn't seem to get enough love in my opinion but he was amazing!
