Dead.net is super excited for this year's DEAD COVERS PROJECT because let's face it, we know you've been hunkered down and honing in on your musical and even more certainly, your video skills. Turn on the studio lights, pick like Jerry, peck like Pigpen, and take it up an octave because it's nearly time for the fun to begin.
Susana Millman’s Alive with the Dead / A Fly on the Wall with a Camera Re-released through Last Gasp Press
Susana Millman was a friend of Jerry and other people in the GD family even before she was a photographer, when she began shooting, no one paid much attention when she took pictures in places that were not on stage. To put it mildly, she had unique access.
There are things you can replace
And others you cannot
The time has come to weigh those things
This space is gettin' hot
You know this space is gettin' hot

About 40 years after joining the original Jerry Garcia Band, Melvin Seals & JGB delivered on December 20 two solid sets at a private, socially distanced performance. The gathering of a few dozen folks, mostly masked, took place on a bright, sunny afternoon in the small Sierra Nevada foothill community of Auburn, Calif. That the improbable, COVID-era show happened all was thanks to the tireless efforts of local concert impresario Scott Holbrook and his Keep Smilin’ Promotions.
This very rare, political song written more than a decade ago by Grateful Dead Lyricist Robert Hunter, was finally unearthed and recorded in 2020. The words eloquently paint a picture of today’s America. This is truly a song for our times.
Acclaimed reggae-rock group Roots of Creation is proud to release their acoustic version of the Grateful Dead’s “Standing on the Moon,” marking the song’s 30th anniversary. The accompanying music video features live liquid light artist Brain Davidson, giving the stripped down song a nod to its psychedelic roots.
Out of an abundance of caution, we must postpone the Jerry Dance Party performance on March 19, 2021 at the Boulder Theater to the following date, July 9, 2021. All existing tickets will be honored. If you're unable to attend due to the new date, refunds will be available for the next 30 days at point of purchase. Thank you for understanding.
