NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A second line to honor the late, legendary New Orleans musician Antoine “Fats” Domino is set for Wednesday night.

The parade will begin at Vaughan's Lounge at 4229 Dauphine Street, in the Bywater. at 5 p.m.

Local trumpeter James Andrews has been tapped to lead the second line, according to his Facebook page. 

The walking parade will proceed to Domino’s former Lower Ninth Ward home at 1208 Caffin Avenue. The procession will then head back to Vaughan’s Lounge for a celebration honoring the world-famous musician.

Domino, 89, died on Tuesday, Oct. 24. The legendary musician cranked out 25 gold singles and sold 65 million records over his 50-year career.

The singer-songwriter was one of the architects of Rock and Roll along with bandleader and trumpet player Dave Bartholomew. The two teamed up in 1949 and wrote “The Fat Man,” which became a million seller and some historians say may be the first Rock and Roll song. From there the duo went on to record dozens of hits including “Blueberry Hill,” “Ain’t That A Shame” and “I’m Walkin,” to name a few.

In 1986 Domino was awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement award and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Domino was a lifelong New Orleanian who lived in the lower 9th ward off of Caffin Street until Hurricane Katrina.

Domino is survived by his wife Rosemary Hall and the couple had eight children.
