Grateful Dead

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.

Good luck!

If I tag an existing video on my YouTube channel, will it become part of the project?

LOL. Thanks for the compliment Mona.

LOL. Thanks for the compliment.

Not trying to trick anyone.

Wardrobe changes are a result of it taking me days to capture a decent take of each instrument. Take care and thanks again for commenting!

'Cassidy' for 2016 Dead Covers Project

I've been tagging covers since 2013 on YouTube, but I'll do a little more self-promotion here for this year's list, even though it seems like songs from Bob's 'Ace' are already being well represented this year...
