New Band to Check Out: Fitz and the Tantrums

I recently saw the New Years Eve special called Live From Daryl's House which is a series of shows that feature different bands and artists performing live in a jam session format.  I discovered a few new bands from watching and one of them is Fitz and the Tantrums.  They are a band with an oldies style sound.  I have said before that the oldies sound is something you don't hear anymore which is unfortunate, but every now and then a band gets it right.  This is one of those bands.

Their lead singer has an amazing voice, even live, as you can hear by watching the live performances.  He just came out of nowhere it seems.  He has a the presence of someone who you would think would be very famous right from an early age.

Pretty much all their songs are good.  I haven't heard anything from them I didn't like.  It's rare to hear a band for the 1st time and immediately like their songs.  Again, this is one of those bands. 

Here's is one of their singles called Moneygrabber.  It has a lot of energy and a catchy chorus.  If you like this, you will probably like all their songs.  Enjoy!
