Born out of high school and college friendships, REQUIEM made its debut
in 1981. The group was largely known as a "studio" band, producing a
series of albums sometimes referred to as the Classic 4. Despite the studio
focus, it was not unusual to catch a live REQUIEM performance on occasion.
These raucous outings featured a diverse selection of classic rock covers
with a healthy dose of REQUIEM originals. Perhaps the crowning
achievement for the group came when they received some very coveted
radio airplay on WSHE 103.5, the #1 South Florida rock station at the time.
REQUIEM's decade run came to a quiet and uneventful close when their
leader and creative mastermind John Muchowski, left for parts unknown.
The remaining members went on to perform in other bands, both together
and apart. That too would end with Bob Dean departing South Florida.
The music went silent.
While REQUIEM was long gone, they were far from forgotten. Over the years, Norm, Bob and Bryan often pondered the whereabouts of their former leader...Enter the age of the Internet. With persistent sleuthing and a good measure of luck all 4 members have been reunited, in the virtual sense at least. While they are states, oceans and continents apart, REQIUEM would become once more.
As it was in the past, it is now in the present...this little "studio" band is back to its studio roots and Back to You.
