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!

update on unseen videos...

If you're worried about whether your video went to the right place, do the YouTube search for DeadCoversProject 2014. If it's there, all should be well. An actual person is in the process of moving them from Point A to Point B, and they will arrive on the Grateful Dead YouTube page as soon as that happens. Meanwhile you can use the embed code to post them here TOO, but the big thing is to make sure they got posted correctly, as above.

Thanks!

I love these guys, their music and their entire vibe, as well as being part of the GBB family.They are carrying on grateful traditions in more ways than just the articulate and tasty samples of their respectful renditions of Jerry and Grateful Dead material.

if you do a YouTube search

video not appearing

I uploaded two videos and tagged them correctly. I don't see them on the Grateful Dead YouTube channel. In fact I don't see any of the 2014 covers. Just a playlist of the 2013 covers. How can I find this year's videos?

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...
