Get To Know Me: The Requisite

The eighth year of local music festival, VanFest, was recently announced for arrival on Saturday, August 25 at Royal Arch Masonic Park in Maple Valley. To celebrate the little fest that could, we're spending the next two months highlighting the bands playing VanFest 8. Today, get to know local band The Requisite through the songs that have influenced them.

Requisite means: A thing that is necessary for the achievement of a specified end.

Creating and performing music is a requisite for each one of our lives. We live to express ourselves, and if you see us live, you'll see four guys pouring our hearts out.

Music is a way to communicate feelings that words alone can't quite capture.

Music is a type of voodoo to which the effects on the human brain really can't even be explained by science.

There is a certain ritual and trance a listener experiences when they're listening to stuff that really speaks to them. For us to play the role of the shaman or the witch doctor in this exchange is a tremendous honor. It's a way of life that you don't seek out. The way finds you.
