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!
This is me giving back to Jerry as much as I can, straight from the heart to my keys, with all I learned about music from him. A few bad notes and all. Thank you Jerry.
This ain't an official submission from the INTERLOPERS. I just wanted to share this stuff with y'all...
The INTERLOPERS are the buzz of the What's what, of what's goin' on around the BERKLEE COLLEGE of MUSIC scene, as well as the Greater New England area of the States for that matter. The first time I had the distinct pleasure of catching them live was this past fall, at GARCIA's (The CAPITOL THEATER ).
The INTERLOPERS were the official featured After-party, following the MICKEY HART BAND's absolutely freakin' STELLAR show at the CAPITOL THEATER in Port Chester NY that night...
pretty darn hard act to follow, but I'm tellin' you what...
the INTERLOPERS kept those Positive Vibes & groooove thangs going, going, strong in to the wee hours, & they did it up right; they made it happen CAP'n!!!
Super added bonus...
MICKEY HART's Lead vocalists, CRYSTAL MONEE HALL & JOE BAGALE sat in with the INTERLOPERS on a few tunes - twas sublime!
Keep your antennas tuned for more stuff from the INTERLOPERS, because they're coming, you're going to hear about the shows, & they are going to be gooood, good for your body & good for your soul :D !
