Avid Celebrates a Massively Successful Night with The Black Keys





This year, Avid was thrilled to take part in the festivities surrounding the 2013 Grammy Awards by sponsoring the Black Keys official after party. The band took over a Victorian mansion in Hollywood, where party goers helped celebrate their massively successful night. And they had a huge night indeed, taking home Grammy awards for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for their hit song Lonely Boy and Best Rock Album for El Camino.


In addition to the accolades for the band, Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach won the coveted Producer of the Year award for his work with his own band, as well as with artists Hacienda and Doctor John. After headlining the awards ceremony, Auerbach came straight over to the party where he took over the decks to spin vintage soul cuts on wax until the wee hours.


We Love Rock N Roll


To extend last night’s excitement and to keep you moving and alert throughout your back-to-work Monday, we’ve put together a playlist featuring some of our customer’s top singles for your listening pleasure.
