On Friday October 30th Concerts in Your Car brought a fun pre-Halloween bash to the Del Mar Racetrack. LA Pop-Soul band Fitz and The Tantrums played an exciting and upbeat drive-in show to a filled parking lot of enthusiastic San Diego fans. This live concert was part of a larger series of events featuring artists of many musical genres in addition to movie screenings. Produced by CBF Productions and entitled “Concerts in Your Car” these live shows aim to bring back musical entertainment in a socially responsible way, providing a chance for people to experience an in-person musical performance by world famous artists from the comfort and safety of their cars. The group has many more events planned all the way through to the holidays.

Fitz and the Tantrums for their part played a fantastic hits filled set of music featuring songs from all of their albums including the newest All the Feels from 2019. The band seemed eager for the opportunity to play live music again, almost as much as all the fans in attendance had wanted to see it. Just witnessing live music these days has become a truly special experience. The band talked on stage about touring frequently in San Diego in the past and remembered playing shows to only 20 folks at the Casbah.

The whole fairgrounds were singing along for a majority of the concert and the band proved their reputation of being a fantastic live act, somehow managing to get the whole giant parking lot of socially distanced folks out of their cars and up dancing and clapping along. The encore trio of “Hand Clap” “All The Feels” and “The Walker” featuring co-singers Michael Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs brought the biggest cheers of the evening (including lots of car honks and headlight flashes.)
