Fitz & The Tantrums

Fitz & The Tantrums

Fitz and The Tantrums is comprised of Fitz (vocals), Noelle Scaggs (vocals/tambourine), James King (saxophone), Jeremy Ruzumna (keyboards), John Wicks (drums) and Joseph Karnes (bass). The band’s most recent full-length release on Atlantic/Elektra Records, ‘More Than Just a Dream’ (2013), burst with danceable hooks,” said The New York Times while USA Today noted, “the Los Angeles sextet is more than ready for the big leagues.” “[More Than Just A Dream] folds neontinted synthesizers and arena-scaled hooks into Fitz’s fiery trademarkfunk to create a big, bright new groove,” said Rolling Stone and Paste praised it as the kind of album “where every single track wants to be a single, even the ballads; the kind that gets catchier and weirder with every spin.” This record saw the band play a number of festivals (Coachella, Lollapalooza, Outsidelands, Bonnarroo) and tour with Bruno Mars. The band’s two singles, “The Walker” and “Out Of My League,” from this release has each been certified Gold. Both singles also topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart -- a feat accomplished by only three other artists in the chart’s 25-year history.

NOTE: New for 2015, the Greenbuild Celebration and Opening Plenary are now separate events!
