Maroon 5 the masterminds behind music that will blow you away whether watching their music video or just listening to one of their intricate songs. With Adam Levine as lead singer, James Valentine as lead guitar, Matt Flynn on drums, Jesse Carmichael on Keyboard, and Mickey Madden on bass guitar there’s nothing you could want more. Ever since middle school Levine and Carmichael have been playing together, with Carmichael originally on guitar. In 1985 the group started with the exception of one member, they were first called “Kara’s Flowers” but changed their name to Maroon 5 in 2002 with the addition of Valentine. Valentine having gone to school with John Mayor, got the band in as an opening act on Mayor’s tour in 2003 and they began their hunt for fame. Kicking off with their first album Songs about Jane Maroon 5 quickly spread in popularity unlike their earlier band from their high school years. Following up with It won’t Be Soon Before Long, Hands All Over, and Overexposed the band has been in 8 tours, received three Grammy’s, two American Music Awards, and three Billboard Music Awards. They continue to blow me away with their absolutely amazing music which you should totally check out on my Music page.
