Grateful Dead

Just like your favorite jam, things are going to get a bit funky on over the next week or so. Community accounts will be temporarily closed October 16th-17th and may be under further maintenance through October 22nd. But rest assured, we will be back up and better than ever shortly thereafter. Stay tuned! Thanks!

It's about that time to break out the banjo, gather up the family band, and let your creativity flow, visually and vocally. The DEAD COVERS PROJECT returns in 2018! We will be featuring selections on Grateful Dead properties all February long but you can send in your submissions as soon as January 1st. Simply upload your video to YouTube, tag it "DeadCoversProject," and we'll make it available to view on the band's official YouTube channel, in February.

Check out this year's growing playlist.

Ramble On Rose

I joined my Dad's New England based Grateful Dead tribute band 2 years ago after the previous rhythm guitarist departed. I tried to get the guys to do a submission last year but unfortunately we kind of dropped the ball on putting something together in time.

I wanted to make sure we were able to participate in the 2018 project, so we threw a couple cameras up during one of our recent rehearsals and recorded a few different tunes. We thought this Ramble On Rose was the best of the bunch. Really enjoy checking out everyone's contributions! The music never stopped...

How about that cello?!?!

This one's not even tagged right and we recorded it nearly four years ago, but I forgot that it turned out awful pretty. This is all just about sharing the music and keeping it alive, right?
