Popular Band with Missoula Drummer Return to Kettlehouse This Year
Another concert announcement came through from Logjam Presents today, and this one's especially exciting for the Missoula connection the band brings to the stage: Fitz and the Tantrums will be co-headlining a show with Andy Grammer at the Kettlehouse Amphitheater on Monday, August 22nd.
What's the Missoula Connection Here?
For those who don't know, Fitz and the Tantrums - the popular alternative band who have had hits like "Handclap," "Out of My League," and "123456" - feature Missoula drummer John Wicks as their bandmate.
John Wicks, who also co-owns Drum Coffee in Missoula, has made himself a staple of the community - he worked to deliver free coffee to healthcare workers during the pandemic and even collaborated with another Missoula-based musician, Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament, on some new music.
Fitz and the Tantrums performed at Kettlehouse Amphitheater last summer, and it was a great show that was only enriched by Wicks' Missoula connection - towards the end, the band brought his family out on stage and had a sort of fake pageant for John Wicks.
So seeing them return to Kettlehouse along with Andy Grammer - who you'll probably remember from his hit song, "Honey, I'm Good," - is going to make a lot of people very excited.
Tickets for the show at the Kettlehouse Amphitheater go on sale this Friday, April 15th at Logjam Presents' website. They range from $36 to $50 per ticket, depending on if you want the lawn, reserved seating, or the pit. The show will take place on Monday, August 22nd, 2022.
