Grateful Dead


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.

Dead Covers Project - Going down the road feeling bad

I recorded this version a few years back for You Tube, but still perform it, along several other classic Dead songs live at my local open mic scene in East Sussex, UK.

30 Days of Dead

This is off-topic, but would somebody please post the song list with show dates from (the 2017) 30 Days of Dead?
I made the mistake of thinking it would still be available for some time after November.

My understanding is you can cover any song the Grateful Dead has played in concert. Two years ago my band Sugar Lime Blue submitted our version of Little Sadie which got a little flack for not being a Dead song but the Dead did play it seven times (there's even a video for an '80's take) - its just not well known. The next year we covered Morning Dew which I believe they played a few more times then seven.

Dead Covers Project Rules

Hello people,
I'm not sure of the rules for entering the dead covers project. Can it be any song that any member covered for example Bob Weir playing Dylan's Masters Of War? How about any song that Dead And Company plays? Ratdog? Pretty sure I've seen JGB covers that the Grateful Dead never played.
Thank you.

I Love Dead Covers Project Season

There's a good chance I'm going to sing a Grateful Dead song every time I pick up a guitar anyway, but I love having the opportunity to share songs every year, and see others sharing theirs.
