Don’t deny it, “Moneygrabber” has had you dancing in your seat from the first beat. Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick and his six-piece Tantrums have been bringing soul back in a way that’s impossible to resist. Last summer Fitz And The Tantrums brought the party to Lollapalooza for an unforgettable set and Chicago just couldn’t get enough. Fitz returned for a full residency at the legendary Metro, with performances captured for PALLADIA over the course of three sold-out XRT Shows.
Tune in Sunday, 4/21 beginning at 8PM/CT for Live In Chicago, hear the band at their boisterous best, delivering rock-solid, soul-shaking versions of the hits “Moneygrabber,” “Don’t Gotta Work It Out,” “L.O.V.” and other gems from their acclaimed album ‘Pickin’ Up The Pieces‘.
Their sound harkens back to the style of Motown and Stax, but they put their own spin on it to create their unique, guitar-less sound. But surprisingly, their big sound started with humble beginnings. Armed with his own church organ and more than a handful of emotions surrounding a recent breakup, frontman Michael Fitzpatrick started writing songs to distract himself. He started with “Breakin’ the Chains of Love”, written the same night he bought the organ.
