Fitz & The Tantrums to show off neo-soul style
First Published Jun 26 2012 01:09 pm • Last Updated Jun 26 2012 03:52 pm

Neo-soul music is on tap at The Depot, with Fitz & The Tantrums closing out the night with their Los Angeles-based soulful stylings. Noelle Scaggs, 32, shares lead-singing duties with Michael Fitzpatrick, a role that has expanded since she joined the band in 2008. "When we started working together, it was as a back-up [singer]," she said in a phone interview. "I wasn’t really committed. Naturally, it’s been a progression. I’m not a back-up singer." In an interview with opening act Royal Teeth’s Gary Larsen, he said the New Wave-influenced band grew a fan base by being centrally located between the hot spots of Baton Rouge, Lafayette and New Orleans. The "let the good times roll" spirit is innate to the band, Larsen said, and they are focused on creating "positive music that feels good." Of course, you can expect to dance.
