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.
Just making sure here...
Whereas we are loving this enthusiasm, we refer you to the actual directions for the contest, posted above, which involve posting your videos on YouTube:
"Upload your video to YouTube, tag it “DeadCoversProject,” then we’ll make it available to view on the band’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/gratefuldead."
(For the person who sent me a PM wondering if his video that's on Vimeo rather than YouTube will work, I think not, given the above reality.)
Now if you just want to tell folks to check out your video, posting about it here is excellent, but for the contest, see above. We would hate to have some really cool video miss out because of this...
Thanks, and on with the Dead Covers!
Here's one from The Electric Koolaid Trio.
"Estimated/Eyes" from our 25th anniversary show. We play in New Bedford Mass every Tuesday. We're on FB at "I love Pearly Baker"
THe vids were taken by someone else, are already up on Youtube. Can someone explain how I can re-tage them to say Dead Covers Project? Not familiar enough with the youtube landscape to navigate those waters.
What about Drums>Space? May we submit a drums segment in lieu of an actual song?
Nice to see you here!
Here's my cover of Row Jimmy. This contest seems fun.
It almost feels like they made this contest specifically for me! Fortunately, I'm not that egocentric. Oh please, OH PLEASE, will some band nominate me to make their video??? All I would need is to know that your band is...
a. TRUE TO THE HEART
b. KIND DEADHEADS
c. AND HAVE MUSIC and or VIDEO for me to use for this contest. The more the better.
d. HAS A WILLINGNESS to work with me through email, skype, phone, etc. to make your video SMOKIN'
e. Buy me a beer at the end of it all at a show.
If you'd like to see my "ametuer" work from all the things I've made from the heart just go to my vimeo site. Can we actually use vimeo, or do we have to convert to the crappy youtube?????
Anyway, either way, I can convert and work with any kind of file either way.
Any band interested in a high quality investment (of only time/love/and Jerry) not to mention more exposure just contact my email....I know we have a ton of really killer cover bands out here in Chicago (hey didn't John Kadlicek come from DSO in Chitown?) but I'd like to give the opportunity out there for any Dead.Netter first! So before I go off into Chitown Land and offer my services to some amazing Dead Cover Bands (ie: Mr. Blotto, Sisters and Brothers, Paradise Waits, Jack Straw, Terrapin Flyer, etc.) please accept this plea for me to make your video, I will do it justice ask anyone here.
All people interested in Dead "Cover" bands around the country of America go here.......Who knows, maybe you'll make a killer video and rock the Dead.Net?
All inquiries go to this email and write me:
Or as always you could PM me here on dead.net.
Is this open to Grateful Dead tribute/cover bands or just to individuals playing GD music?
