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.
I wonder when they are going to "shine" that Lovelight on the top 5 submissions. First they said it was going to be in March, now it was changed to April and now its almost the end of April and...nothing.
Looks like one creeped in (same song at 9 & 10? Weird)....
Anyway - here's a link to the whole first set video playlist with SOUNDBOARD audio - it sounds SO much better....
And the link to the second set video playlist with SOUNDBOARD audio, too....
And here's the SUGAREE, just to give you an example....
don't be sorry PAPPYPGH, rejoice. This whole business (and these days the whole world) is about hook or crook. I never paid much attention to Kimock but you guys put on a good show and Kimock has an interesting and unique way of whipping up the jams; he really sneaks up on you and I love your pair of of queens on vocals.
They've been cycling the top ten board for a few weeks now. The video I submitted for Front Porch Revival cycled all the way to number 1 in just a few days then fell off the top. The boys got all excited. Thanks deadcoversproject or its mysterious leader! Giving everyone some exposure is the kind approach - think about dropping the likes bit though - I see you're tracking all the outgoing clicks now anyway and are clearly not paying any attention to like counts anyway, thank Jerry, so why continue the ruse?
I just checked out mightrinwood's entry from url provided in the post right below this one and was seriously touched so I figured I'd help him out by embedding the video here to get him a little more traffic from those who only click - it's short and sweet and if I'm understanding correctly qualifies cause was written by Hunter
Made own of my own
I don't know what happened - I certainly didn't mean to 'take over & run' anything!
I enjoyed that AWBYGN, Ziph! Thanks for posting!!
Just got back from Ashland Oregon where I got to play with Front Porch Revival at Green Springs Inn. One of the guests happened to be an old bluesman by the name of Robert Fraiser who played the harp and trumpet. These guys tore it up with amazing educational banter on the history o da blues between tunes - then four days buried in my day job and I'm back - oh and not a moment too soon I see cause ol' PAPPYPGH's a runnin the board.
The really momentous development however is that the deadline ceiling has been crashed and talent is once again rearing its head. That's our call to arms all you clever and hungary souls, the flood gates are open and the deadcoversproject is once again open for business - and this time no stinkin watches! So get busy!! Ziph must be entertained!! Ha Ha but 1st I must sleep. I will return with more treasures currently hidden deep within the deadcoversproject
For now however, it just took a minutre to find this this priceless entry:
I know the thing is over, but I do look everyday to check out new videos in the "Top 10" and have been enjoying a bunch of them! I tune in this morning to find a slew of our stuff from our recent show with the great STEVE KIMOCK!
A word to the wise, the sound quality is filled with audience chatter, but you can still hear everything. We will be putting out the Soundboard audio onto Archive.org REALLY soon! I'll post the link once it's up for those interested.
Where's they go from the videos? They had three. I Know you Rider, Midnight Moonlight and Jack-A-Roe into Hesitation Blues. Guess I'll have to listen to their many videos on You Tube. Cant wait to see them on the 21st at Great American Music Hall in SF. Any dead heads coming to the show? Lets Meet up
And I got to see a whole bunch of familiar and much loved songs by a some really cool bands.
Original songs from our favorite and bestest Dead Cover bands?
