Jodeci - Adidas band name class

Twice two brothers and all are capable of playing solid R&B, soul and new jack swing tunes.

Donald and Derek DeGrate, Cedric 'K-Ci' Hailey and Joel 'Jo-Jo' Hailey from Charlotte, North Carolina chose one of the corniest methods there are to come to a fun band name: by piecing together parts of their own names.

'Jo' comes from 'Jo-Jo', the 'de' part is due to the DeGrate brothers' last name and the 'ci' ... well, you can figure that out yourself.

How did Jodeci get the band name - Adidas Logo 2
We can not get very excited over it. It is a name in the 'Adidas' category.

The name of the world famous manufacturer of sportswear consists of parts of the first and last names of its founder, Adi Dassler. Although some say it actually means All Day I Dream About Sports, or Sex, or Sandwiches, Sleep, Stereos, etc.

 But what this has to do with band names - we don't know either.

Active: 1990-1996; 2006-present, USA
