Product Description

Since their first show at Hollywood s Hotel Café in December 2008, soulsters Fitz & the Tantrums 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. The recipe for success? Six killer musicians, five dapper suits, irresistible songs, one vintage organ and nonstop touring.

.....hey, how come all my reviews get 5 stars?....because i only review stuff that knocks me OUT!!.....these guys (and gal) have it NAILED DOWN, sharp as a razor Motown vibe completely punched up to a whole new level of amazing......whether you're talking musicianship, vocals, songwriting, presence or just cool clothes, this band delivers much more than you bargain for at every turn.....excellent mix of songs (some dance, some ballads, some r&b) makes this album one of the very best i've heard in the past year......you're gonna love it....i already got tickets to their next show (have heard they're really great live)......can't wait!

~~~~~ UPDATE November ---- going to catch them this Saturday for their 3rd show this year in Chicago, a party not to miss!!.....they're on a damn fine trajectory (how sweet it is) with t-o-n-s of talent, good old-fashioned hard work and just keeping it real.....you wanna know the difference between art and entertainment?..... entertainment fades away, while art only gets better and better......new album for 2012, guys, i know you got it in ya....

A great record you can listen to from beginning to end. When was the last time you did that? Jumps out of your speakers because it sounds so different. Love the cuts: Moneygrabber, Pickin' up the Pieces, and Mr. President. Noell's vocals are wonderful -- she brings a lot to the party. What I like most is it's different, fresh, - a treasured gem mined from the wasteland of American Pop music today. Finally! A great "time capsule" album for 2011. Had never heard of them. My husband serving in Iraq heard them in the middle of the desert listening to the AF radio network... and thankfully sent me the record because I'm from Philly. Those reviewing claiming it sounds like Hall & Oats - Daryl Hall all but handed this band his torch while he sang MoneyGrabber on Live @ Daryls house - it's an awesome jam with the "blue eyed soul" master himself. Check it out!

Is it too late to buy stock in these guys? I saw them in concert in Chicago in mid-February having heard only one song (the infectious "Moneygrabber") previously, and I loved the show! They're very tight, very personable, and their music is a wonderful blend of Hall & Oates and Motown's finest.

"Moneygrabber" is one of my favorite songs of the past 5 years. I really like 6 of the other 9 songs, and the other 3 (the slower songs) aren't bad. All in all, one of the most auspicious debuts in years.

To really get a feel for this band's sound and flair, check out their "Moneygrabber" video on YouTube.

I hope the band gets a break like being on "Late Night with David Letterman". I know Dave and Paul would love 'em, and I think most of America would, too.

Fitz and the Tantrums is a fresh new mix of soul and pop music. If you enjoy 60/70 soul, this album is the best thing you'll hear this year. Electric organ and saxphone drives the sound and it is impossible to sit still thru up-tempo cuts like "L.O.V.", "MoneyGrabber", "Breaking The Chains Of Love". Slow grooves like "We Don't Need No Love Songs" are in the best blue-eye soul tradition.

I'm certainly hoping for a long and successful career for this new band, they are good!

I'm a fan of "Live From Daryl's House" the free monthly web show. Fitz, Noelle Scaggs and sax player James King of Fitz and the Tantrums, are Daryl Hall's guests on this months edition. First time I had ever heard of Fitz and the Tantrums. If Daryl has them at his house, you know they've got to be good! I have to say, I was blown away. If you want to get up close to these fantastic artists, check them out at "Live From Daryl's House". You won't be disappointed. They describe their sound as soul-influenced indie pop. A blend of Hall and Oates and Bowie. And Noelle brings vocals reminiscent of the Shirelles. Went straight from Daryl's House to amazon.com and downloaded the album "Pickin' Up The Pieces". Now I'm going back to Daryl's House to watch them again.

I love the songs all of them and glad i got the cd, 'money grabber' is a great song! as well as the others, if you looking for something fresh and new get this cd, its good and you'll love it,

Caught these guys on Live From Daryl's House - I must say I was blown away. After some heavy sampling, I picked up the entire album (something I don't do all that often these days) and I gotta say, these guys rock! Such a nice blend of soulful styles, with a touch of the New Romantics thrown in. I thought music like this was dead and gone. Well thank heaven for Fitz and the Tantrums for bringing it back!

I found out about this group when I heard them on a live podcast from KEXP. I liked what I heard and when I saw you could get the download on Amazon for $5 I jumped on it. Great sound, I enjoyed the songs. The live versions have a little more energy than the studio cuts, but they are still very good. Group sounds great live and I hope they come to the east coast.
