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 guess I didn't know this was a contest, I thought it was just a collection of music...a project. Where does it say it's a contest? Has it been a contest in years past? We're all winners as far as I can tell. Nice playin' ya'll! Peace, JP
nice work everyone! here's my version of "New Potato Caboose" ... hope you like it
Got inspired and recorded this. Tagged the video DeadCoversProject on the Youtube, not sure if anything else needs to be done.
it isn't about winning
but it WOULD be helpful if the videos were even INCLUDED to be AT LEAST SEEN
which they aren't
Greetings from The Silent Trees!
We're back this year covering Peggy-O.
We're enjoying everyone's videos, what a fun project!
Here's ours, hope you dig it!
If you want to hear more, give us a like on Facebook.
We love you Jerry!!
This contest is a fun opportunity to pay tribute to this wonderful band.
I mean, the contest doesn't even really have prizes, so who cares who wins?
I just like being part of it!

I can verify what gdradio is saying.

After a couple of days, we went all out, and our videos are currently tagged all of the following:
