Rock Hall educators Dr. Lauren Onkey and Jason Hanley will examine the careers of Inductees Fats Domino and Dave Bartholomew – one of the greatest partnerships in the history of rock and roll—and their contribution to the birth of rock and roll. This evening takes us from the early days when Dave Bartholomew heard Fats Domino playing in Billy Diamond’s band at the Hideaway Club in New Orleans, to the string of influential recordings they wrote and recorded at Cosimo Matassa’s J&M Studio on the corner of Rampart and Dumaine starting in 1949 (including “The Fat Man,” “Ain’t That A Shame,” “Blue Monday,” and “I’m Walkin”). We will also explore how their music drew both black and white fans and pushed at the boundaries of racial segregation.
This event is free with a reservation. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 216.515.8426 to RSVP.

In memory of Phil Everly, who passed away in January of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the 2014 Annual Music Masters will create awareness for the disease, which affects an estimated 24 million individuals in the United States. The progressive lung diseases include emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. Despite being the third leading cause of death in the United States, there is very little research funding for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD is a preventable and treatable disease but the lack of research, awareness and education has resulted in millions of unnecessary hospitalizations, complications and even deaths of patients. The COPD Foundation’s mission is to prevent and cure COPD and to improve the lives of all people affected by COPD.
