Music legend to be honored at Carnival

– The music of rock ’n’ roll Hall of Fame performer Fats Domino will “float” through the streets of New Orleans this Carnival season.

Domino has been named honorary grand marshal of the Krewe of Orpheus, the star-studded Carnival club that traditionally parades the night before Mardi Gras.

Although Domino won’t be riding in the March 3 parade, his eldest son Antoine Domino III is expected to ride on a float equipped with a piano and speakers to perform his father’s greatest hits, such as “Blue Monday,” “The Fat Man,” “Blueberry Hill” and “Walking to New Orleans.”

Other family members are expected to ride and throw coaster-size gold record doubloons and other Fats Domino-themed trinkets from the float.

Mardi Gras is March 4.
