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!

Dead Covers Project

I'm a bit confused about the Covers Project. I uploaded and tagged some songs and they appear on a general search of Youtube under the DeadCoversProject2105 (along with about 45,000 other songs). But I noticed that the Grateful Dead YouTube channel only includes about 53 songs.

Just curious if there are more selections to be made or if there is a deadline.

Thanks for hosting the Covers Project! Very, very cool.

All good things,

Mark Harrison

Thanks to all for the kind words, both here and on our youtube page. For those who missed it, here is the Brokedown Palace by David Bryan and Friends featured last Tuesday.

Be sure to watch all the way through! :-)

Thanks to whoever fixed this! :)
I am so stoked and honored. I may be a 49 year old woman, but when it comes to Dead stuff I still feel like the 17 year old who left home to go on tour.
big love to all!
