    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!

I posted my video on youtube yesterday, tagged it "DeadCoversProject", but don't see it up. Am I doing something wrong?

What do you do when you're NOT in a Grateful Dead Cover Band? Why, you play songs the Grateful Dead Covered!

Hey y'all check these guys out and give 'em a thumbs up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFgf4muYj6g&feature=youtu.be This is their version of Candyman that's deservedly featured on the front page of dead.net today. They've been honing their sound for many years and kill it every week. Give 'em a listen. They also have several more videos out on Youtube that are worth your attention. Cheers!

Thanks for the help. I have no idea what's gone wrong. I had no problems last year. My video is up on my youtube channel and I've tagged it, I believe, appropriately. It's been pretty frustrating. I'd greatly appreciate any assistance you can offer. The tune is BrokeDown Palace and my channel is under my name, Gordon Wallace. Thanks again...

I uploaded two videos and tagged them correctly. I don't see them on the Grateful Dead YouTube channel. In fact I don't see any of the 2014 covers. Just a playlist of the 2013 covers. How can I find this year's videos?

for DeadCoversProject 2014, it should all come up fine, or at least it did for me this afternoon... Some great stuff there, too!

I love these guys, their music and their entire vibe, as well as being part of the GBB family.They are carrying on grateful traditions in more ways than just the articulate and tasty samples of their respectful renditions of Jerry and Grateful Dead material.

If you're worried about whether your video went to the right place, do the YouTube search for DeadCoversProject 2014. If it's there, all should be well. An actual person is in the process of moving them from Point A to Point B, and they will arrive on the Grateful Dead YouTube page as soon as that happens. Meanwhile you can use the embed code to post them here TOO, but the big thing is to make sure they got posted correctly, as above. Thanks!

Thanks for the update. I don't see the two videos I uploaded last weekend yet but I'll keep looking. They are "Me and My Uncle" and "Ripple" performed by Jack Dylan Evans. I believe they are tagged correctly.

Salutations again, Grateful Dead Family~~ I've got one more upload for the DeadCoversProject--same band I play in , as the other video I posted..And once again, I created a video to the audio, using my own art. I apologize if it doesn't translate well to hi-def, my computer is so old, it uses hieroglyphics.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_o7X0l97xgk http://youtu.be/_o7X0l97xgk

    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!!!
