Antoine Dominique "Fats" Domino Jr.(born February 26, 1928) is an American R&B and rock and roll pianist and singer-songwriter. He was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Domino was French Creole and Creole was his first language. Domino was delivered at home by his midwife grandmother who was born into enslavement in 1857. Like most families in the Lower Ninth Ward, Domino's family were new arrivals from the sugar and cotton plantations.[1] His father was a well known violinist, and Domino was inspired to play himself. He eventually learned from his Uncle, jazz guitarist Harrison Verrett. [2] Fats released five Gold (million selling) records before 1955.[2] Domino also had 35 Top 40 American Hits and has a music style based on traditional R&B ensembles of Bass, Piano, Electric Guitar, Drums, and Saxophone
