The Louisiana State Museum Foundation honors legendary producer Dave Bartholomew (pictured), studio owner Cosimo Matassa and the Ponderosa Stomp. The event marks the 60th anniversary of the Fats Domino release "The Fat Man," widely considered the first rock 'n' roll record, which Bartholomew arranged and Domino recorded at Matassa's J&M Recording Studio. Currently on display in the museum is "The Secret History of Louisiana Rock 'n' Roll," which was curated by the Ponderosa Stomp and features exhibits about Domino, Bartholomew and Matassa's contributions to early rock 'n' roll. Lil Buck Sinegal headlines the event. Food is provided by area restaurants. A patron pre-party (6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.) features music by Jay Chevalier. Tickets $50 in advance, $60 at the door, $250 for patron party (includes museum foundation membership). — Will Coviello
