"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...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
"...former Deloris Telescope drummer and Soupy principal Ricky Wilcox finally brings his soulful power-pop ambitions to fruition via The Moonsnakes...Think about an intelligent mish-mash of Britpop, Americana, and early 80’s Athens smart jangle and you’re on your way. Evocative, poppy stuff." Weekly Planet
