TAMPA - Fitz & The Tantrums are coming to the USF Sun Dome on Wednesday, Sept. 10, at 8 p.m.
Brimming with imagination, energy, and genre-smashing scope, Fitz & The Tantrums defied the odds to become an indisputable phenomenon, a chart-topping, show-stopping modern pop combo unlike any other.
A longtime studio engineer and aspiring musician, Fitz founded Fitz & The Tantrums in 2008 and convened an amazing set of people –including Noelle Scaggs, James King (saxophone, flute), Jeremy Ruzumna (keyboards), Joseph Karnes (bass) and John Wicks (drums, percussion). They quickly recorded the band’s debut EP, Songs From A Breakup, Vol. 1 and it wasn’t long before Fitz & The Tantrums were being spoken of as one of the most exciting live acts in the country.
The Los Angeles-based sextet released their first studio album, Pickin’ Up The Pieces in August 2010 to unanimous critical acclaim. Things soon began to break their way as irresistible singles like “MoneyGrabber” and “Don’t Gotta Work It Out” began drawing national radio airplay, resulting in Pickin’ Up The Pieces ascending to No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart.
From the studio to the stage, Fitz & The Tantrums give everything they have to anything they do, leaving it all on the floor night in and night out. Their newest album, More Than Just A Dream, which includes their smash hit “The Walker,” fully confirms Fitz & The Tantrums are here to stay.
