The beginning of Maroon 5 dates back to 1994 when Levine, Carmichael, Madden, and original drummer Ryan Dusick first came together as Kara’s Flowers when they were still in high school. Following a self-released album, they signed with Reprise Records, but the band parted ways after their next album garnered less-than-stellar response. They came back together in 2001, adding guitarist James Valentine and changing their name to Maroon 5. Their first album under that banner, Songs About Jane, debuted at number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart and, 2 years later, was dubbed the sleeper hit of the millennium. Since then, the band has toured extensively, released 5 more albums, produced 2 live recordings, and won 2 more Grammy Awards for “This Love” live and “Makes Me Wonder.” Today, tickets sell out for their concerts, and throughout 2018, Maroon 5 can be seen on the North American leg of their tour in cities such as Houston, New Orleans, Chicago, Nashville, Boston, and New York City.
