    The Dead Covers Project 2016

    This year's submissions period has ended. Check out all the great performance with the Official 2016 DEAD COVERS PROJECT playlist.

    Whether you play just like Jerry or like to give the Grateful Dead's beloved classics a unique spin, the 2016 Dead Covers Project wants you! We're calling all musicians - near and far - to share your love for the music and magic of the Dead through video. Show off your musical chops and you just might find yourself front and center on Dead.net during the month of February! The rules are simple - all video submissions must contain a song either written by or recorded by the Dead. How that song is interpreted, however, is entirely up to you.

    Upload your video to YouTube, tag it "DeadCoversProject," and we'll make it available to view on the band's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/gratefuldead. Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube.

    Good luck!

pasting the videos here is good, but make sure you post them to the Dead Covers Project on YouTube so they're entered and we know they're there. Thanks!

Salutations, Grateful Dead Family!A facebook friend told me I should submit this to the Dead Covers Project... It's an audio recording of a GD/Allmans band I've played with for years. Since we don't have any good live footage, I created a slideshow montage using my own art with a handful of pictures form the Hubble telescope. I did a series of 'old-timey' Jerry Garcia pictures, with old-fashioned colors, to suit the "Workingman's Dead" feel. Hope y'all enjoy. Peace.... Lisa Rainbow~~~ <3 :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaMCOh64l7o http://youtu.be/FaMCOh64l7o

I just came to this treasure trove of music and I can't wait to listen to all the covers here. For me, this is the best thing about the Dead's music -- it's still alive, still inspiring musicians, still touching people's hearts and souls. Here is the first of a few Dead tunes performed by a collection of central PA musicians who came together to form a "project band" called Buffalo Crossing. We played at the Little Buffalo Arts Festival in October 2013. We were under time constraints, so these are kind of the "Readers Digest" versions. Hire us to play your party and we'll stretch them all all day for you. :)

On the YouTube page under the Share tab, one of the options is Embed. Copy that code, paste it here, and all should be well.

thank you!! i saw Jerry play this many times in the early 80s and i can't remember which show the dead played it at, but that was awesome too. it was one of the first songs i ever performed and was a mainstay when i would play outside shows looking for tickets on tour. :)

This one seemed to go into the ozone, so I'll post it again. This is Buffalo Crossing's third submission for the Dead Covers Project. Hope to see you all around soon. Special thanks to Bob Martin for keeping the bus on schedule.

The tags look fine. It mine close to a week to show up in youtube when I searched for it using the proper tags. If you want the vid to show up here go under "share" on your video page and click on embed. Take that code and post it here. This rocked guys! I loved it.

I'm sorry to bother you with this, but how did you get your song up on this page? A friend videoed our show the other night, tagged it Dead covers project, and I can't find it anywhere. It's on our YouTube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG6UoxXJCi8 but not here or anywhere else. Can you help?Got it figured, Thanks.

    GD Karaoke Covers?
    There are some Karaoke covers of Dead tunes. Mostly Truckin and Casey Jones. If you dig hard you can find Big River, some traditional blues. The Mars Hotel Out takes has about the best Scarlett B Karaoke/instrumental version I've heard! How about a sub category for next years Cover Project to include a Karaoke award? Sorry singers, take the backup position. Let's build up a home made Karaoke library!!!
