Keith Wilkins is the Vice President and a Board of Director for the Tampa Bay Music Hall of Fame.

A subsidiary of the Florida Musicians Hall of Fame, the goal of the Tampa Bay Music Hall of Fame is to Honor and preserve the legacy of all music industry people from musicians to writers and from performers to promoters who have roots in Florida and have contributed in a way that made a difference in Florida's musical heritage. The Hall of Fame's task which lies ahead is to channel the positive energy of a few to honor and cast in stone enabling future generations to remember the many who have contributed through their art by sharing their diverse talents in music with Florida and the world!

From Classical Music to Jazz to the works of music legends like Ray Charles and Steven Foster to Southern Rock pioneers like the Allman Brothers and Tom Petty and from Country Rock icons such as Jimmy Buffett to Latin Rock's Miami Sound Machine with Gloria Estefan and others like them, will finally be honored, recognized and remembered for future generations.
