Boden Sandstrom Patricia Vergara April 28 , 2008 Performance Paper Hotspur: A Band on the Rise The name Hotspur may not immediately spark a sense of familiarity in most music fans . However , the crowd at Club Sonar in downtown Baltimore, Maryland not only knew Hotspur, they loved and identified with them . Hotspur may not be well known to a wide range of people because they are new onto the popular music scene . They released their first single in the spring of 2006 and their first album “Beta” in August of the same year . However , being around for only two years did not affect the band ’s fan base . The four young men from Rockville , Maryland have accumulated immense popularity amongst teenagers and young adults . The band says “the biggest asset [we] have is the connection with [our] fans” (Hotspurmusic .com). They work very hard to please and be in tune with their fans , and this is why they have such a youth appeal . Hotspur is a new band that has been trying to make it big on the music scene for over a year , and their eager enthusiasm about their music as well as their age and identity allow them to have a deep and rooted connection to their fans , which is steadfastly raising them to new levels of popularity .
