The Meridian

The Meridian


The Meridian is college pop rock strongly influenced by 90's pop rock. Catchy riffs, great harmonies, typical songs of drinking and being dicked over by chicks. Nothing to intense, we like to drink and have a good time. Give us a listen.


The Meridian formed when Ty Kirk and Tom Belot began writing and playing shows at a coffee shop in downtown Wichita, Kansas. Once they made it up to Lawrence, Kansas to attend KU, they met their drummer, Bret Triola. However, it was not until the spring semester of 2007 that Ty, Tom and Bret found bassist Matt Schmidt-Philips and pianist Kyle O'neal. At this point, they are just starting out as a full band, however their mix of high energy covers, and catchy originals makes for a great show. So if you like what you hear contact on this site for booking. The Meridian is always ready to play!
