Founded in 1994 by Robert D. Thomas and David W. Meyers, the CSMHOF recognizes Columbus area musicians whose careers have significantly enriched our musical heritage. To be considered for the Hall of Fame, a musician must have been born at least 60 years ago and have lived in Central Ohio. The CSMHOF is also engaged in thoroughly documenting the history of popular music in this area.

The Columbus Senior Musicians Hall of Fame has been retired. I feel it served its original purpose, which was to draw attention to some of the great players who have called Columbus home. This website will remain up for years to come and may even be added to from time-to-time. However, I am putting my energies into other projects, mostly notably a series of local history books, several of which are music-related. I invite you to check out my other website (noted below) to learn more about these. Thank you.
COLUMBUS, THE MUSICAL CROSSROADS, a photo-history of music in Central Ohio from 1900-1970, was published by Arcadia Publishing in 2008.
OHIO JAZZ, A HISTORY OF JAZZ IN THE BUCKEYE STATE, was published by The History Press in 2012. It included 60 mini-biographies of notable players from the Buckeye State.
Both books are available at many local bookstores as well as online. Additional information is available from davidmeyers.biz.
