Hello, and thanks for your interest in Those Meddling Kids.!
We are a group of long time musicians who became close friends, and are blessed to have the opportunity to play the music we love for great people. Here's a little bit about us individually:
DEVON ANDERSON is from Pleasant Valley, Iowa, where he grew up playing bluegrass and country music with his family. While in college, he played in several classic rock/folk bands that enjoyed regional success and developed a wide variety of genres. As a result of a couple of spring break trips to Daytona Beach, Devon fell in love with Florida and moved to Pinellas county in 1996. In his spare time, he enjoys writing and recording original music, cooking, art, gardening, community outreach and spending time with his family. He married fellow Meddling Kids bandmate Kathy (Storvis) Anderson in 2015, and they live in Dunedin with their three boys and two dogs.
KATHY ANDERSON is from Redford Township, Michigan, where she grew up singing in church, school and various vocal ensembles. She moved to Pinellas county in 1985, where she worked in the beach hotel industry for several years. Kathy is an avid athlete who enjoys basketball, beach volleyball, bike riding, snorkeling and kayaking. She loves to travel, meet new people and spend time with friends and family. She and Devon plan to retire to the Keys in a few years where they will play music, continue their community outreach and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
RICK McCALL is from Orlando, Florida, but has played everywhere from Boston and Rhode Island to Ruth Eckerd Hall and Coachman Park. He loves music, family and participating in community outreach with the other members of the band. Rick plays multiple instruments, and enjoys learning challenging musical pieces and encouraging the band to refine their technical delivery.
NICK STANICH is from the Bronx, New York. He has played percussion in several Latin and New Age groups, which has greatly influenced the "groove-jam" aspect of the Meddling Kids show. Nick brings an element of fun to the set list, and keeps the energy level elevated. He is an avid fisherman, and enjoys cooking, spending time with his family and friends and teaching percussion to Devon and Kathy's oldest son, Dylan, who makes occasional appearances with the band.
DEREK BRADSHAW is a Pinellas county native who has played guitar and bass in multiple bands for multiple years. He has toured, done studio work, recorded original projects and has served in community outreach for many years as well. Derek is skilled in electronics and carpentry, which helps keep the Meddling Kids on the stage. He is an avid outdoorsman, and enjoys camping, fishing, hiking, cooking and quality time with his wife, family and friends.
