The Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal was awarded between 1970 and 2011. From 1967 to 1969 and in 1971 the award included instrumental performances. The award had several minor name changes:

  • From 1967 to 1968 the award was known as Best Rhythm & Blues Group Performance, Vocal or Instrumental
  • In 1969 it was awarded as Best Rhythm & Blues Performance by a Duo or Group, Vocal or Instrumental'

The award has been discontinued after 2011 in a major overhaul of Grammy categories. As of 2012, all solo and duo/group vocal performances in the R&B category were shifted to the newly formed Best R&B Performance category.
