When Johnny Smith decided to move from NY to Colorado Springs, he was approached by Ted McCarty to design and endorse a guitar to be built by the Gibson Guitar Company. In exchange, Gibson furnished a music store with merchandise and thus in 1963, Johnny Smith Music was born. After serving Colo Springs and the country for 30 years is was time to explore other things.
Verne Rice (Larry Rice’s father) had a successful band & orchestra repair business in Colo Springs that he had established in 1968. Due to health concerns, Larry moved back to Colo Springs in 1983 along with his wife & partner Jean and together they combined Johnny Smith Music with Verne Rice Repair to form Rice Music.
In 1989 the store was moved to its present (and much larger!) location. In 1996 a second store was established on the East side of Colo Springs.
Johnny Smith and his wife Sandy have continued to be good friends and close consultants. Please check out our Johnny Smith section for more Johnny Smith background.
