Goin’ Home: An Evening Honoring Fats Domino and the Music of New Orleans
An eclectic mix of musicians will pay tribute to Fat Domino at New Yorks Pink Elephant this Thursday. Antoine ‘Fats’ Domino is scheduled to make his first trip to New York City in over 20 years to celebrate the release of Vanguard Records Goin’ Home: A Tribute To Fats Domino compilation CD. To mark the occasion, a number of musicians featured on the recording will anchor a benefit for the Tipitina’s Foundation at the Pink Elephant, including Ivan Neville, Gavin DeGraw, Leo Nocentelli, Eric Krasno, Adam Deitch, Olu Dara, Michelle Branch, Toots Hibert and Lloyd ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’ Price, among others.
Earlier in the day, Domino will perform his signature ‘My Blue Heaven’ on The Late Show with David Letterman with Norah Jones, one of the artists who appears on the compilation. The following morning he will appear on The Today Show and, later that evening, Domino will make a rare in-store appearance at Borders in Columbus Circle, signing copies of ‘Goin Home’ from 7 to 9pm. Other artists who appear on the tribute album include Paul McCartney, B.B. King, Neil Young, Joss Stone, Lenny Kravitz, Elton John and Tom Petty, among others.
