Founded in 1990, the FBA Hall of Fame was designed to recognize and honor the truly outstanding band directors that are, or have been, active in our state. The Roll of Distinction was established in 2001 as an extension of the Hall of Fame, to honor those outstanding musicians and educators who have made exceptional contributions to the advancement of bands and band music in the state of Florida.
