On Wednesday, Nov. 22, a Tribute to the Instigators of Funk and Rock-and-Roll, celebrating the music of Antoine “Fats” Domino and Huey “Piano” Smith, is set to occur at Tipitina’s in New Orleans. The night will function as a benefit, with a portion of proceeds going toward the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic.
The impending evening of music is the fifth installment of tributes presented by Tipitina’s and produced by Sonny Schneidau. Past iterations have included The Professor Longhair’s 100th Birthday Tribute, With You in Mind: A Tribute to The Songbook of Allen Toussaint, The Tribute to Dr. John, and Covered in Earl: A Tribute to Earl King.
Returning as Musical Director during Wednesday night’s celebration is George Porter, Jr. The event is billed to feature live performances from a mix of talent rooted in Crescent City culture: Irma Thomas, Deacon John, Jon Cleary, Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph, Al “Lil Fats” Jackson, Charlie Gabriel, James Andrews, Stanton Moore, Tommy McLain, C.C. Adcock, and River Eckert.
Moreover, the night features support from the “House Band” comprised of David Torkanowsky, Kyle Roussel, Chris Adkins, Terrence Houston, Roger Lewis, Tony Dagradi, Brad Walker, Tracy Griffin, Jeff Albert, Phillip Manuel and Jolynda “Kiki” Chapman. At the same time, Gwen Thompkins (Music Inside Out) will serve as the MC.
The night’s charitable cause, New Orlean Musicians’ Clinic, aims to “provide comprehensive medical care and social services to local musicians, performing artists, cultural workers, and tradition bearers.” The 501(c)3 nonprofit serves any patient 19 or older and their family, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
