Fitz & The Tantrums: I've Already Had Your Kind

Next Saturday is the Silopanna Music Festival in Anne Arundel, Maryland.  I'm really looking forward to it, because it's been too long since I've taken in some live music.  The festival will feature 20 bands on three stages.  The bands range from popular local acts to national headliners.  Over the course of the next week, I'll feature some of those bands leading up to the festival.

First up is a band I caught at Dave Matthews Band Caravan in late June.  Fitz and the Tantrums come to us from Los Angeles.  They play a brand of music that feels as though it came straight from the 70's- a soul-funk, can't help but dance style that has reeled in a strong following.  Their 2009 EP Songs For a Breakup, Vol. 1 and their reputation for strong live performances caught the ears of fans and music critics alike.  This led national tours supporting some of musics biggest names and appearances at some of music's finest festivals.  In August of last year Fitz & the Tantrums released their first full length album, Pickin' Up the Pieces.
