Founded in 1983, in Pensacola, FL, by Tony R. McCray, Sr. and his son Tony R. McCray, Jr., the Music Makers Hall Of Fame honored musicians and singers from Florida, the Gulf Coast and the larger “Chittlin Circuit”.  Annual celebrations included performances by inductees, achievement awards, banquets, media interviews, and celebration.  When Tony R. McCray, Sr. passed away in 1994, Tony R. McCray, Jr. moved to South Florida to manage The Palm Beach Minority Business Development Center and several community development corporations.  He was not in a position to direct the Music Makers Hall Of Fame Board in Pensacola and the awards and exhibit materials were donated to the Pensacola Wentworth Museum. In 2004, Tony and his sister Cheryl V. McCray returned to Pensacola to care for their mother Lois P. McCray.  The family was approached by several Hall of Fame inductees and other interested parties to retrieve the awards and exhibit materials, establish a facility, and renew the award ceremonies.  The proposed facility is to have entertainment, historic preservation, artist development, and retail product branding and sales.

The Music Makers Hall of Fame Museum & Entertainment Complex will be the only facility in the world that preserves, honors, and celebrates the history of the talented musicians, singers, and groups who played and performed throughout Florida, the Gulf Coast and the “Chittlin Circuit”.
