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!
TODAY'S FEATURED VIDEO
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,
Here's my contribution:
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!
Imagine my happy suprise to sign in and see that my video is featured today... BUT it's not loading onto the page and if you click on youtube it doesn't take you to the video. Not sure who to ask for help....but in case you want to see it.. here is the link: http://youtu.be/pz9HD57NQYg

Big love to all!
Thank you for featuring Indalo Wind. We are honored to be included with all the great musicians who have contributed to this very cool project. Peace through music.

The followup to last years groundbreaking, controversial, highly-praised "Victim or the Crime."
