Fitz & the Tantrums tickets on sale FRIDAY, SEPT. 23rd

Fitz and the Tantrums will be playing at the Bijou with Walk the Moon on Sunday, October, 23rd at 8pm.

 

In just a year or so, soulsters Fitz and 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.

 

Lead vocalist, Michael Fitzpatrick, describes the band’s musical style as "soul-influenced indie pop” and that they draw influence from classic songs by Stax and Motown artists.

 

Since their first show at Hollywood’s Hotel Café in December 2008, Fitz and co. 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.

 

90.3 the Rock has been Knoxville’s source for hearing Fitz and the Tantrums for years now, including their debut full length album, Pickin’ Up the Pieces.

 

Tickets for Fitz and the Tantrums at the Bijou Theatre go on sale Friday, September 23rd.  For more information go to the Bijou website.
