Grateful Dead

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!

Good luck!

Stella Blue (Bimini Road): 2015 Dead Covers Project

Here's one of our 2015 Dead Covers Project entries. Hope everyone enjoys. Bimini Road is based in North Alabama. So that's weird.

folks, feel free to add whatever variants you like, but be sure you're tagging your clips "DeadCoversProject" (without the quotes) to ensure that our various filters see them.

Thanks!

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
