With a title like “The Wrecking Crew,” you know it’s got to be good.
Wednesday at the Capitol Theater in Olympia, a music documentary that is as fresh as it is informing, will play for one night only. The Wrecking Crew tells the story of American pop culture in perhaps its finest era – the 60’s and 70’s.
From the West Coast originals themselves - Beach Boys to the Monkees, The 5th Dimension to Sonny & Cher and Simon & Garfunkel, the music was phenomenal.
But the studio masters behind the scenes, like Hal Blaine, Tommy Tedesco, Glen Campbell, Plas Johnson, and trailblazing bassist Carol Kaye, have had little recognition, nicknamed ‘The Wrecking Crew’ these talents helped shaped pop music as we know it.
The Wrecking Crew features timeless interviews, valuable music clips, and clues into the heart and sweat of the team that helped propel the songs that shaped a culture.
From an interview in the New York Times, Director Denny Tedesco said, “There are 132 music cues in this film, and you’ll know 99.9 percent of them.”
Doors are at 6p.m. and Tedesco will host a Q&A after the screening & give away an exciting door prize.
