Ricky Smith planning a comeback with a “2010 Life Tour” and a new CD…..

Since I only stumbled onto the Tejano Scene in late 1994,  I never had a chance to see Ricky Smith and La Movida.  I remember back in the mid 90s the song “Cada Noche” was a big hit on KICK FM in Dallas, and asking a friend what CD that song was on because I really liked the song and wanted to hear more about what that band sounded like and being told that it wasnt a new song, and since I wasnt online back then, I had no way to research it.    

Well, Ricky Smith is back in Corpus and planning a tour.  Click on the image below  to visit his website , where you can listen to some clips and read his bio (its quite impressive) .
