Wrecking Crew Film & Q&A
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Wrecking Crew were a group of Los Angeles-based studio musicians in the 1960s who played on hits for the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Sonny and Cher, Jan & Dean, The Monkees, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Mamas and Papas, Tijuana Brass, Ricky Nelson, Johnny Rivers, and were Phil Spector's Wall of Sound. Behind every recording was an elite group of engineers, using groundbreaking and innovative techniques to capture the distinct sound of the musicians. With more Gold and Platinum credits than The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Elvis, and Elton combined, “The Wrecking Crew,” is the most storied, yet anonymous group in recording history.
Produced and directed by Denny Tedesco, son of legendary late Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco, this elusive yet highly praised documentary film features interviews with Brian Wilson, Cher, Roger McGuinn, and many Wrecking Crew members, including Glen Campbell, a durable superstar, in his own right. Tedesco and special guest Don Randi will hold a Q&A following the screening.
