What would the pop-rock world look like without Maroon 5? They have released so many popular songs, gone on numerous tours, and have basically dominated the charts since their debut in 2002. They are a "hit-song" making band, and I think that’s what draws people to them. Just good music, catchy songs, and it doesn’t hurt that Adam Levine has been deemed the “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine in the past.

Maroon 5’s latest album came in 2014 and it is another success for the  band that’s been playing together since 1994. “V” is the fifth album for the group and we've had plenty of hits from it: Maps, Animals, and Sugar. 

Maroon 5’s history is also a very cool story. They all went to high school with each other in Los Angeles and the band’s name was originally “Kara’s Flowers”. So when you listen to Maroon 5, you’re essentially listening to a high school band that has “made it”. Growing up, they played tons of local shows. Everywhere they could get a gig, they would take it. And that got them noticed, which eventually got them a record deal. Maroon 5 has always prided themselves on their hard work ethic. A lot of people have misconceptions that they were handed fame, but they worked their way up.

They just announced another big tour and will be playing at the XL Center in Hartford next September! Tickets are on sale now. You can enter to win tickets to that tour here.
