Biography

The Meddling Kids, a 4-piece rock band from Rochester, NY, smack in the middle of the "snow belt" . . . yeah, there isn’t much to do in the dead of winter but fortunately you got the Kids . . . writing songs that will have you singing along, well after the show is over. Tyler (Vocals/Guitar), Rezz (Guitar), Brian (Bass) and Billy (Drums) combine classic rock influences, such as The Beatles, Cheap Trick, Kiss, and the Rolling Stones, with the spirit of the ’80’s to produce the soundtrack to your next party.

Strong pop melodies fattened up with a Marshall stack… Tyler says "Growing up as kids we listened to everything from Ratt and Van Halen to Michael Jackson and Huey Lewis so we write melodies that suck you in and then drop a bomb on your little head, it's nice!" Plus an energy-filled show that turns heads and drops jaws, "When we started this band, we decided to give people the kind of show we always wanted to see," says Billy. Good enough to be invited to share the stage with big boys such as Blues Traveler, Molly Hatchet, Firehouse, & The Good Rats as well as members of Kiss, Guns n Roses and Fuel.

With the dawn of this new disc and the regional touring that entails, everyone's gonna get the chance to love The Meddling Kids.

The M-Kids will have their rockin version of "Ive Done Everything for You" on Fastlane Records Rick Springfield Tribute CD - "Working Class Dogs" due out shortly.

The Meddling Kids are proudly endorsed by In Tune Guitar Picks (www.intunegp.com) and Fusion Hair Salon (www.fusionsalonnewyork.com)

QUOTES:

"This band has too good of a sound not to be picked up by a major label REALLY soon." - Target Audience Magazine

"The songs are well-written, hook-laden bursts of cool. And it's the band's heavier big amp, big riff approach that brings the rock. The Kids prove melody doesn't always have to be placid or soft. And an opening track "Let Her Go" is a smash hit just waiting to smash." - Frank DeBlase, Rochester City Newspaper

"Take one part infectious pop, one part classic rock, throw in a cover tune best described as Rick Springfield on steroids, and you begin to understand why The Meddling Kids provide the cure for the anti-rock star blues"- Heather Kobrin (theywillrockyou.com)

"The Meddling Kids are radio-friendly, fun, cute and insanely marketable" - Low Budget Super Hero e-zine (Sep 07).
