Fitz and The Tantrums played "Moneygrabber" on Leno (video)

Fitz and the Tantrums band at live in concert at 2011's SXSW in Austin, TX

Last night, Fitz and the Tantrums performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Like their other late night television performances the LA group dished out their single "Moneygrabber". Video of that via Audio Perv can be found below.

The soul/swing band are currently in the middle of a US tour supporting their debut LP Pickin' Up The Pieces, which dropped earlier this year on Dangerbird Records. If you missed it, we caught one of the group's performance at 2011's SXSW.

All of Fitz and the Tantrums upcoming tour dates, which unfortunately don't include any area shows at the moment, can be found over at their show page.

Had high hopes for their performance but was disappointed. Something was missing. It didn't gel. Unfortunately the produced version of the song is so awesome that the live version has to try really hard to get close. Also, Fitz really needs to do something about that hair. It's pretty embarrassing.

agreed. recorded version is awesome. live version not so much. I'll give them some slack though cause late night talk show sound usually sucks.

I saw Fitz live in Nashville and it is definitely better as a 'real' live performance rather than a late night style live performance.

They are, undoubtedly, one of the best new bands and I hope they continue to garner more attention!

I missed thieir appearance with jay leno. ironically though I cancelled my the renewal of my insurance policy earliar that same day (6th of April) and directed my insurance broker and the head quarters of the company to the "money grabber" video on UTube. The words were just pefect for a break up with my greedy insurance company. "so don't come back any time youv'e already robbed me blind"...every line was perfect for my break up, also a littlle humor" with "this is your payback money grabber" felt really good to shout from the roof tops for a couple of days. I swear that company is NEVER on YOUR SIDE. I Love fitz and the tantrums great songs for all kinds of break ups!!! ( I hope all the Insurance clowns watched fitz and the tantrums on leno).
