Frostburg State University’s University Programming Council will present the pop band “Maroon 5” at its annual Spring Concert on Saturday, April 24, at 8 p.m. in the FSU Physical Education Cordts Center Main Arena.
“Maroon 5” released its hit single “Harder to Breathe” in the fall of 2002 and by the summer of 2003, it remained on multiple radio charts. The group’s latest single, “This Love,” is popular in current radio airplay and the song’s video is regularly featured in VH1’s Top 20 and MTV. In February, “Maroon 5” was the musical guest on NBC TV’s “Saturday Night Live.” They have performed over 200 live shows and have opened for artists such as John Mayer, Sheryl Crow, Jason Mraz and Counting Crows. Other appearances include “David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “The Late Show with Craig Kilborn.”
Singer/guitarist Adam Levine, guitarist Jesse Carmichael, bass player Mickey Madden and drummer Ryan Dusick comprise “Maroon 5.” The band blends elements of funk and blues influences into their rock and roll songs. Formerly known as “Kara’s Flowers,” members of the band have been friends since junior high school. They played their first show at The Whisky in Los Angeles back in 1995.
