Songwriters to Soundmen with New Orleans Saxophonist Herb Hardesty

Wednesday, November 10: 7 p.m.

Herb Hardesty is most known for his association with Fats Domino, beginning in 1949, where he has been the featured sax soloist for most of Domino’s recordings. His easy, upbeat, distinctive style has been a trademark of Fats’ music and can be heard on rock and roll classics like “I’m Walkin’,” “Ain’t That a Shame,” “Blue Monday,” and many others.  During his prolific career, Hardesty has worked with Hall of Fame Inductees Lloyd Price, BB King, and Little Richard as well as Tom Waits, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Dr. John, and Frank Sinatra.

“From Songwriters to Soundmen: The People Behind the Hits” gives Rock Hall audiences an inside look at aspects of the music business that are often concealed from view.

For those who wonder how songs become recordings, how recordings become hits, or how the show gets on the road, this series offers both answers and anecdotes beyond imagination.

From label executives to producers to guitar techs, the music industry is populated with remarkable characters who have equally remarkable stories to tell. If many of us know a whole lot about the stars, too few among us know about the folks who work alongside the stars, who discover stars, who direct the careers of stars, who produce their songs.
