The Dead Covers Project
What a wonderful month it's been, sharing our love of the Grateful Dead through song and video! We applaud all the hard work and effort that you, the fans, put into the DEAD COVERS PROJECT, and we hope you'll continue to watch and support all the amazing participant videos on YouTube until we fire up the DEAD COVERS PROJECT again next February.
Throughout the month of April, we'll be shining our lovelight on a handful of artists that really made the grade. You'll get to know each of these five artists and find out just what made them connect with the Dead in our exclusive DEAD COVERS PROJECT profiles, but for now we'd simply like to congratulate the following participants (in no particular order)...
Now Playing In The Band...
The project may be over for 2012, but you can continue to check out some of the "Top Rated" videos that were submitted and "Like" them here.
Ha Ha, - surprising
WOW it's a june explosion. I haven't even been able to get off the ten list tonight
the RED PLANET trio
pretty amazing sounding acoustics
60 years ago the foundling bluegrass was eclipsed by the electric guitar - of a sudden there is finally presence parody in sound reinforcement and bluegrass has grown up
e.g. check out the infamous string dusters
these guys are jumping into mainstream America with all the sensibilities of the dead and then some, they bring the technology, drip with talent, and exude nothing but love, I'm glad I lived to see it
a few excellent calls on todays 10 list coversproject
definitely a lively and entertaining promised land!
Without a Net, No Rehearsal, One time Gig, Dead Cover "Band"
These Canadians ROCK! 'eh
MARS HOTEL playin Toronto
Box of Rain
Maybe it's time to start highlighting some of the bands and renditions that didn't get as much attention. So many submissions, and yet it seems the same bands keep getting reposted. What about some of the less popular/lesser "known" bands that offered some interesting takes on Dead tunes? Do they not get their day in the sun now that the official contest is over? I mean, since you're still posting vids, it would be nice to see a more diverse offering. Sure, we could search ourselves, but it's nice to see them up here where they are "highlighted." Some of those small bands could probably use the exposure and appreciation.
Thank you kindly!
PAPPYPGH, the video is amazing!
Thanks for sharing!
BTW in case you haven't tried this audio editor, try it! ;)
Now, how would you know what was being discussed during the break?
....was looking across stage at Mr. Steve Kimock playing on an original song of mine...
Here's "CHINA CAT SUNFLOWER" > "NEVER ALONE"
Please excuse the video montage over "China Cat", as our video guy was (as he says) "in conference".....teeeheeee.....
Yeah...what's up with that?
