Video: Fitz & the Tantrums Bring their Festival Gig to Bottle & Cork, Dewey Beach, DE

in Concerts by

Fitz and the Tantrums have been playing the big stages at the Coachellas and Bonnaroos for almost ten years, so I was in near shock when my friend texted me he was seeing them at the always rowdy, pretty small, Dewey Beach bar, Bottle & Cork.  The Cork has a capacity of 1,000 though it feels more like 200. One of the more memorable shows I saw there was a Meatloaf cover band (single guy) who had more fun than any of the tens of us in the crowd. I digress. So, in case you’re flat mates with the Geico caveman, here’s a blurb on how big Fitz and the Tantrums are:

The Washington Post called Fitz and The Tantrums’ live show “captivatingly crazy” and Rolling Stone praised the band for its “irrepressible energy: hopped-up rhythms, shout-it-out choruses, and hooted background vocals.”

More Than Just a Dream, which has racked up over 76 million album streams to date, contained the RIAA Gold-certified singles “The Walker” (which was tapped for the 2014 OSCAR ad campaign featuring Ellen DeGeneres and a cast of dancers) and “Out Of My League.” Both songs were multi-format hits, topping Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart at #1 and placing in the Top 5 at Triple A radio and in the Top 15 at Hot AC.

Thanks to my friend Franklin Gotham for sending me these videos…
