Sorry, this advance has been sold.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to earn royalties from the recording catalog of the Grateful Dead, one of the most iconic rock bands of all time. This Peer Advance includes the rights to royalty payments from all of the Grateful Dead's studio and live albums recorded between 1968 and 1995.

This Peer Advance is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Keep reading for more details.


With a Peer Advance, the investor is buying limited-term rights to collect royalty income until a fixed return is achieved.

In this case, the investor will pay $135,300 for the right to collect the first $45,000 of the owner's share of royalty income in each year until the investor receives a total of $180,000. The repayment is expected to be satisfied in four years. The total return equals 32.8% with an annual return of 8.2%.

The owner has earned at least $68,000 from the asset in every year since 2012. You can view a summary of the yearly income in the "Financials" tab.

What is the Royalty income stream?

The investor is purchasing the rights to the first $45,000 in yearly revenue derived from the owner's interest in the exploitation of the Grateful Dead studio and live album sound recordings recorded between 1968 and 1995. This includes new releases of previously recorded material.


The owner's accountant will collect and distribute the first $45,000 in revenue generated by the catalog to the investor once each year in July. The owner will retain all yearly revenue in excess of $45,000. The investor's payments will continue until the investor recoups $180,000. As soon as the investor recoups $180,000, the owner will again receive 100% of their royalties. If the revenue does not reach $45,000 in any calendar year, the shortfall will be added to the following year's repayment amount.

The first payment to the investor will be in July 2018.
