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 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. Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube.
Dead Covers Project Leader Board
OK! Annual Dead Covers Project time! Always a blast. Bimini Road performs Scarlet -> IKYR, which works really nicely, or so we think. Got a vocal flub by yours truly, but it's not like THAT never happened before :). What do you think? Recorded on 21 November, 2015 at Berkeley Bob's Coffee House in Cullman, Alabama. Enjoy!
Chuck Puckett, Guitar & Vocals
Ruthie Puckett, Vocals
Richard Eade, Guitar & Vocals
Clark Williams, Drums & Vocals
Sujay Mylabathula, Bass
Here's my cover of "Althea" for the Dead Covers Project 2016. Enjoy!
I've always said "never trust a robot"
Based on the fact that our 'leader board' now includes a performance by the Dead themselves, I'd say there's something to that sentiment!
One night in the Caribbean.....
The Silent Trees Quartet (featuring Brian Sances) perform "Fire On The Mountain" (Hunter/Hart) during their set at Electric Haze in Worcester, MA. Mohamed Araki, keyboardist and member of Spiritual Rez sat in for the high energy anthem. https://youtu.be/2yLJCDc06F0

The video should have to have been uploaded sometime after Feb 1 as well, or whenever the "contest" started.
you can further refine it to bring up, say, the last day's or week's worth of new clips.
You get to have your music heard by 1000s and Njoy Dead tunes from around the world! :D
