MILTON-FREEWATER — Fats Domino had his first hit on the rhythm and blues chart in 1950 when “The Fat Man” peaked at number two.
Five years later, he broke onto the pop chart with “Ain’t That a Shame.” Domino went on to place more than 60 songs on each of those charts in the ’50s and ’60s, influencing up-and-coming rockers like Elvis Presley, The Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Domino, who was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, died Oct. 25, 2017. However, his music lives on and is being featured during the latest installment of Oldies Night in Milton-Freewater.
BJ the DJ will spin such tunes as “Blueberry Hill,” “Whole Lotta Lovin’” and “Blue Monday.” The free event is Saturday at 7 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church, 816 S. Main St., Milton-Freewater. The Frogs will offer snacks.
