"A Great Big Show For A Great Big World"

The night started off with a set by local band The Requisite, that did a great job of warming the room up. The crowd gave an enthusiastic response to the group’s poppy-yet-driven sound. Frontman Maxwell Royce sang and perfromed fervently, alternately singing into the mic passionately and slinging his hair from side to side. Royce ended the band’s set on his knees, digging into his guitar strings to the roar of a room full of new fans. Word has it that The Requisite is in the midst of recording some new songs, and you can expect to see them around town again very soon. - Seattle Music Insider

"Soniphone Records showcases fresh, raw talent"

Jaunty rock outfit The Requisite leveled things up from there, both musically and in the attire department. Lead singer and guitarist Maxwell Royce and co. blazed through a clutch of tunes that were strut-worthy and sonically tight, at times sounding a bit dreamy and soaring. Their costumes were the best of the night; there was seriously nothing on stage that could compete with Royce’s PBR guitar-toting lion or a drumming Pocahontas. Judging by their performance on this night, it would be a pleasure to see these guys in just their regular duds as well. Royce’s voice is honey-timbred; thick, yet pleasantly clear. - Seattle Music Insider

"The Good Hurt and The Requisite RAWKED the Shoe last night....insane crowd when I finally got there at 12:30. If it weren't for bands and musician's like these, Mad Mike Presents would just pack up." - Mad Mike Presents
