In just a few years, soulsters Fitz and the Tantrums went from the living room to the main stage. Their recipe for meteoric success is six killer musicians, five dapper suits, irresistible songs, some serendipity and one vintage organ. Since their first show at Hollywood’s Hotel Café in December 2008, Fitz and The Tantrums have toured with Maroon 5, played to thousands at Colorado’s world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, shared the stage New Year’s Eve with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and performed on KCRW’s esteemed show, Morning Becomes Eclectic – all this on the strength of their stellar five-song EP, Songs for a Breakup, Vol. 1. For some bands, it takes a lifetime to build this success, but few performers deliver an unrestrained blast of soul-clapping, get-down-on-the-floor, moneymaker shakers like Fitz and the Tantrums. Since the release of their debut full length, Pickin’ Up the Pieces, the troupe is even more poised get down in dancehalls across the universe, and recently played to thousands of adoring fans in Chicago at Lollapalooza.
