Please Call Home: The Music That Made Southern Rock

The Jacksonville Historical Society and aficionados of music genres rooted in Northeast Florida, particularly Jacksonville, have taken on an ambitious and alluring project that is sure to draw visitors of all ages to learn of and embrace Jacksonville's rich and deep musical history.

One part museum, one part intimate performance venue, this venture will leverage the memories and memorabilia of people who lived through the birth of Southern rock and roll, as well as pay homage to the giants in the blues and jazz genres in Jacksonville’s African American community.

The museum will provide an opportunity for visitors to travel through the history of blues, jazz, Country and Rockabilly to Southern Rock that originated in Jacksonville.

Consider donating artifacts from music performers who came from Jacksonville or paused here for a time and who subsequently contributed to the rich history of American music that has its roots established in Jacksonville. To contribute items to the museum, contact the Jacksonville Historical Society at (904) 665-0064 or email archives@jaxhistory.org.
