"St. Pete’s Ricky Wilcox is an accomplished pop-rock singer- songwriter whose unusual credits include a featured song on the ABC soap All My Children and a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo in The Punisher movie. On new disc Last Day On Planet Earth, Wilcox and his band of Moonsnakes play Midwestern power-pop, soul, country and early ‘80’s British pub rock tunes with effortless harmonies. They contemplate the wonders of love and spaceships, too..." Tampa Bay Times

With death comes superlatives, and they started rolling in after the iconic punk poet and Velvet Underground leader Lou Reed died on Sunday, October 27: Most influential band ever. Greatest debut album ever. Most uncompromising rock star. And many, many more. Crossing age groups and fans of different styles of music, he has been heralded as one of the important and influential musicians in contemporary music whose appeal transcends age groups and style of music. Within hours of his death listeners began asking the station to create a tribute show to remember and celebrate Lou Reed. $12.00 advance $15.00 at the door

Greetings and Salutations!
Welcome to the site and check out all the great things we've got going on...It's been a great couple of months with a lot of neat stuff happening...and more to come! Please check in whenever you can and come out to see me (or us!) sometime....read on and rock on my friends...
cool stuff going on now..."Fabulous 60's influenced summery pop on new album from Tampa Bay-based singer-songwriter Ricky Wilcox and his latest band, The Moonsnakes..." pennyblackmusic.co.uk
YAY! We now have another new record available for major consumer consumption! "Old Glory" is our newest release on Sunshine Drenchy Records. ...so check it out, please, at cdbaby, iTunes, Amazon, etc..."old Glory has it's own page on this site, so go to it for more information, stories about the albums creation and song info! if you are looking for "Last Day..." or "Old Glory" search under 'Ricky Wilcox and The Moonsnakes'; if you are looking for "Monkeyshine" type in just 'Ricky Wilcox'
AIRPLAY!! This year we got our first European airplay from "Last Day..." via RADIOGIRL on Dollard Radio - Oldambt, The Netherlands! Host/Producer/Engineer: Johanna J. Bodde
Available via live-stream at www.dollardradio.nl - Saturdays 9AM-11AM EST. We are also getting international airplay from our friends in British Columbia with "Spaceship Over Tulsa" and "Picture" being added to the playlist at 92.5FM, Shaw Cable 106.1, and live at www.TheX.ca in Kamloops, BC, Canada...also locally we were the "Album of the Week" on WMNF and Music Tampa Bay!
(2012) "Last Day On Planet Earth" is finally done and has now been released on Sunshine Drenchy Records, home of The Ditchflowers, Steve Robinson and Steve Connelly, among other notorious Florida pop-meisters...The record looks pretty cool (if I say so myself) and sounds great and my friends at QCA in my hometown of Cincinnati did a great job.
My last record "Monkeyshine" is still available on iTunes and CD Baby (digital only- hard copies have sold out!). A cut from that album, "Insignificant," was featured on ABC's All My Children for most of 2009...I swear this has nothing to do with the show's cancellation!
My song "Drive On" was selected to be included on the newest BAAMO (Bay Area Arts and Music Organization) compilation CD, "Tales of Highways and Low Roads" available at Baamo.org. This is funny because it was actually recorded in 1991! Old school and still pretty ass kicking...
My original band The Moonsnakes is off and running (again), and all my other projects are staying busy as little beavers as well...look for me solo, the Little Kings, and Dick and Feef gigs coming soon!
So please stay tuned...I promise to try and keep things interesting!
