Music
is a big part of the Florida Keys culture, and not just beach music.  Jimmy Buffet's trop rock is "The Keys Music," but there are many other genres of music being written, recorded, and performed by many varied singers, songwriters, and musicians in the Keys.  Florida Keys island music is as much rock and country as Caribbean Conch music.
