Fitz and the Tantrums Live at Borgata Music Box on June 6th, 2014
Fitz and the Tantrums are a soul group from Los Angeles, California and one of the hottest rising acts in the country. They are often considered one of the hardest working bands too.
The group was founded in 2008 by Michael Fitzpatrick, who had begun writing soul music for a solo project on an old church organ he had purchased. He added his friend James King to the group as an arranger and soon after the band grew to become a seven piece group, including several horns. Fitzpatrick shares the vocal duties with Noelle Scaggs. Other members include Joseph Karnes, Jeremy Ruzumna, and John Wicks.
Fitzpatrick has said that the bandís musical style can be fairly described as soul-influenced indie pop. He noted that while the band is influenced by the classic songs of the Motown and Stax record labels, the band is not trying to create an exact replica of that music.
