Garcia met Bob Weir and decided to assemble a jug band - Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions - featuring instruments such as the jug, washtub bass, harmonica, washboard and the kazoo. Jerry and Mother McCree's took their music in a different direction. They started using electric instruments, and then changed the name of their group to the Warlocks.
The Warlocks, realizing that there already was a band playing under that same name, decided to change it. After numerous names that were no good, Jerry got a dictionary, opened it, and came across the words grateful dead.
The rest is HISTORY
