The Grateful Dead Then and Now @Central CMR

The rise of the Grateful Dead occurred in lockstep with the hippie culture that took hold in the Haight-Ashbury in the mid-1960s. They were the band of choice at parties held by Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters as they experimented with and popularized the use of LSD. The Dead collaborated with many other Haight musicians and played numerous free concerts during the Summer of Love. Unlike other bands of the period, they enjoyed great longevity, playing together for 30 years, with surviving members continuing to jam into the present day.
