Maroon 5 may sound like an unnecessary sequel to a film about color wheels, but theyre actually an immensely popular pop-rock band. Youve heard lead singer Adam Levines smooth, soulful vocals on the bands early hits This Love and Sunday Morning everywhere from Star 98.7 to your local supermarkets condiment aisle. The quintet has won three Grammys (say what you will about the Grammys, they at least know their pop) including Best New Artist and Best Pop Performance. Their two albumsIt Wont Be Soon Before Long and Songs About Jane have gone triple platinum and elevated the boys to superstar status. And now theyre coming to Orange County to steal the hearts of fans too sophisticated for Justin Timberlake.
