Fitz and the Tantrums
In just a year or so, soulsters Fitz & the Tantrums went from the living room to the main stage. The recipe for meteoric success? Six killer musicians, five dapper suits, irresistible songs, some serendipity and one vintage organ. Where did it all begin? Well...
“I got a call from my ex-girlfriend,” Fitz explains, "And she said, 'my neighbor is moving out in a hurry and has to sell everything. And, he has this organ…'” That night, Fitz stationed himself in front of that vintage instrument and wrote a blue-eyed soul anthem, “Breaking the Chains of Love.”
Since then, Fitz and the Tantrums have been breaking all rules and creating their own path down the "soul influenced indie-pop" genre. Their 2010 debut album, Pickin' Up The Pieces, has received critical acclaim and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseakers chart. The band was also heralded as "the band to watch" in an April 2011 profile in Rolling Stone.
On stage, Fitz and the Tantrums are not just a band, they are an explosion, and we cannot wait to see them set the beach ablaze at DeLuna Fest!
