The Oscar-winning doc “20 Feet From Stardom” put a massive limelight onto the singers who helped to back some of the most beloved tracks in popular music history.
Similarly, “The Wrecking Crew” aims to celebrate some of the most vaunted session musicians who amplified an important era in the rock 'n' roll annuls and formed what would be called the West Coast Sound.
The Wrecking Crew was the group of musicians that played some of the Beach Boys' best known songs on record, for Frank Sinatra, Sonny & Cher, Herb Alpert and the Byrds; for great theme songs and jingles, as part of Phil Spector's “Wall Of Sound” formula and beloved Motown records…
As the exclusive TV spot above says, the Wrecking Crew were star-makers by simply being the behind-the-scenes stars themselves. You just may have never met them properly.
So extend your hand: “The Wrecking Crew” heads to select theaters and VOD on March 13; it was produced and directed by Denny Tedesco, son of the late, great Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco.
