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!
I absolutely LOVE the Dead Covers Project... it just feels so good to know that this vibe has spread so far, so deep with no end in sight. Tell me Jerry would have not have loved this concept as well...
Every submission gets a big thumbs up from me.
it is really cool to see these videos!
from your account, and tag it DeadCoversProject. That way it will show up for us.
can't figure out how to upload on the gd. page. just don't see it. :(
Yeah, we love this. It probably is the best and most anticipated feature of Dead.nets's whole year. I think the talent of the musicians and their trying to be spot-on at their best with their own interpretations really breathes life into the musty ol' crypt.
Prepare to get spun in a lot of directions you never thought of, never even anticipated were on the compass.
If you didn't dig it last year then pull up a rocker and get cozy with a blunt and a glass of merlot and prepare for maybe being pleasantly surprised a time or two or three at what folks are cooking up out there. It truly is testimony to the dead's body of work and one that may make you smile again and again at the same old song several more times.
Don't forget to hit the "like" button much as you like!
