“Taking the stage dressed in card-themed white suits — another tip of the hand to the new Grammy digs — the guys took center stage backed by a full band with a horn section. Together they performed a rousing, extended version of the song dedicated to Lady Luck and rollicking good times, Vegas-style.”
“Silk Sonic got the party started at the 64th Annual GRAMMYs with an incredible performance! The duo, made up of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, got the star-studded audience moving and on their feet.”
“The new Kings of Roll Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak channeled Elvis Presley’s white bejeweled jumpsuits — and Andy sported a bowl cut — for the first performance of the evening from their Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums No. 1 album An Evening With Silk Sonic. Backed by a full band and a replica of the “Welcome to the Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” sign, Silk Sonic brought the sights and scenes of the Strip inside.”– BILLBOARD

ABOUT SILK SONIC:
Silk Sonic introduced “Leave The Door Open” in March 2021 alongside an official music video directed by Mars and Florent Déchard, which won Best R&B Video and Best Editing at the 2021 MTV Music Video Awards. The track was followed by a hugely popular social media campaign, #LetSilkSonicThrive, which earned them a debut live performance at the GRAMMY® Awards (plus a powerful tribute to Little Richard) followed quickly by iconic live sets at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and the BET Awards. “Leave The Door Open” became Silk Sonic’s first #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, spending two non-consecutive weeks at #1 and 18 consecutive weeks in the top 10. In the meantime, their infectious jingle co-written and performed for SelvaRey Rum amassed widescale praise over the summer. The duo then coasted into their sophomore release of “Skate,” which saw them glide into a second top 10 hit on Billboards Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs as it debuted at #4 and began as the genre’s best-selling song of the week. “Smokin Out The Window” arrived last week with Billboard noting how “Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars take it all the way back to the 1970s Soul Train era in the retro video. [It]finds them going through their choreo on an old school TV set while rocking wide lapel tuxedo jackets.” An Evening With Silk Sonic is out now.
