Fitz and The Tantrums –

Pickin’ Up The Pieces

Rolling with the heavy brass, Fitz and The Tantrums infuse a big band feel with swing beats that will have you slowly tapping your foot until you’re all worked up reenacting moves from Dancing with the Stars (except without that whole Kirstie Alley fall). The band’s ensemble lacks guitar, but makes up for it with plenty of sax allowing singers Michael Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs to fill out the sound with soulful-pop vocals. Fresh off of Leno AND Conan (yeah…that’s awkward), Fitz is out west for most of the summer. If you find yourself in New York on June 25th get to Central Park and be prepared to sweat. The album Pickin’ Up the Pieces is out now via Dangerbird Records. It rocks from the first track to the last so it’s time to get out of that chair and shake ya’ ass.
