Casa Marina Reservations? Please READ!
We have had some hotel cancellations as we passed the 60 day deadline before the event. Some of the wait-list have been moved over already. We are watching this listing daily and your potential opportunity will come in the order in which your request was summited. Stand by as we will have a few more rooms open if history repeats itself.

The Meeting of the Minds Entertainment Schedule for 2016
No new updates as of this writing! There are some things in the works and agreements will be made all the way up to the week of the event to add in a few things on the entertainment schedule.

This schedule will respond to your mobile device for reading and best of all you can read it at night! Note the online schedule is for events at the Casa Marina only as PHiP does not manage events offsite of the convention grounds with the exception of the Duval Street Festival on Friday.
I am going to promote a few cds in production that I know about as I write this update. Ramajay Intercoastal, Thom Shepherd with Coley McCabe, and Don Middlebrook have new cds in the works. If you don’t have Keith Sykes’ new release he will have it at MOTM as well! Will Kimbrough is cranking out so much new material of his own and producing so much material he will have some really cool cds at MOTM as well. Marshall Chapman just told me she is bringing a table full of cds! There may be other new cds coming but these are the ones I am aware of as I write this. I have heard a few of the tracks and they are all outstanding! Not only are we going to hear all of this great new live music YOU will have a chance to be among the first to own these new releases as the cds are all tracking to release as we hit the ground in Key West! YES there will be artists signing all of the merchandise you pick up at MOTM including the Coral Reefer Band.
