Beginning with the first shake of the turtle shell rattle by the ancestors of today's Florida Seminole Indians, The "Sunshine State" has developed a rich history of music! It is with this spirit and depth of origin that we join in on this long musical journey, recognizing all which is Florida Music!

Now, more than ever, is the time for Floridians to step up to the plate and take the initiative to openly salute those who have and those who are still creating the music and the events which have shaped all of our lives while living in Florida and touched the hearts of many all over the world! All of the music makers who have come before us and many who are still making music today deserve our honoring and recognizing them showing our collective appreciation for Florida Music and its effect on the world!
