Does anyone have any ideas or plans for a Florida music history unit? It is a standard in Florida, but hard to locate any info. Thanks

I have some ideas but no formal lesson plans...

Just off the top of my head I can think of several bands /genres represented by Florida musicians:

Lynyrd Skynyrd (Jacksonville) - Southern Rock
.38 Special (Jacksonville) - Southern Rock
Molly Hatchet (Jacksonville) - Southern Rock
Allman Brothers Band (Jacksonville) - Southern Blues/Southern Rock (they started in Florida but didn't really hit it big until they moved to Macon, GA)
KC and the Sunshine Band (Hialeah) - Disco, Funk, Pop
Tavares (Tavares) - R&B, Funk, Soul, Pop
Jim Stafford (Winter Haven) - Folk, Pop, Novelty/Humor, Country
Miami Sound Machine (Miami) - Latin, Funk
Gloria Estefan (from Miami Sound Machine) - Latin flavored Pop, straight Pop, R&B
Jim Morrison (was born in Melbourne and attended FSU) - Member/lead singer of The Doors
Tom Petty (Gainesville) - Rock, Pop
Gram Parsons (born in Winter Haven although Waycross, GA is considered his hometown) - "Cosmic American Music", Country-Rock, Rock, Pop, Blues
Slim Whitman (Tampa) - Country & Western
The Bellamy Brothers (Darby) - Country, Country Rock, Pop
Mel Tillis (Darby) - Country, Country Pop
Pam Tillis (Mel's daughter) - Country

I know there's more but that's all I can come up with right now...

Thanks! I know I don't have many important bands, some of which I didn't listen to. I hope I'll add them sooner or later. And I'll take into account your suggestions.

You're welcome and actually I think you included many important bands, especially from the 60's. I just mentioned those few groups that I consider as essential, especially Buffalo Springfield.

Great site, very complete info of each band. I'd just tell you that you're missing a few important 60's bands like Buffalo Springfield, CSN&Y and Spirit.

Thanks! I like Allmusic and there were the times when I visit it very often to get information on favorite bands, but then I wanted to make my own website with my fav artists and to make year by year chronology, and with a differ navigation... The next step is to make website editable for registered users (a little bit like Wiki). The users could edit theirs favorite artists as I did before. I want to make this because unfortunately I can't spend much time on editing website and I don't want neglect it.

If you'll get any ideas about this website let me know  ;)

I just checked out the ELO page.  I like it.  It has the discography, lyrics, cover scans, reviews, and links to Amazon for other reviews and buying options.

I'm working on friendly URLs for http://www.dmrockmusic.com
URLs for artists are ready. And gradually I'm making album URLs, it will took a long time, but I do not hurry.

Examples: http://www.dmrockmusic.com/Electric_Light_Orchestra and http://www.dmrockmusic.com/Ram
before it was like http://www.dmrockmusic.com/artist.php?artist=11 and http://www.dmrockmusic.com/disk.php?disk=243
Of course old links will be active always.

Doesn't it look nice?  roll:)

I was looking for a new domain name for a long time and now, thanks to my comrades here, I got very nice one. Special thanks to nimrod, who thought up dmrockmusic! I wonder why it didn't came to my mind before.

Maybe it's lame, but you could do something with an alternative spelling. You could for instance spell "music" as muzic, musik, mmmusic, myousic... You could try to turn that into some kind of trademark.
