Following the Academy Award-winning success of the documentary 20 Feet From Stardom, which put the spotlight on the careers and lives of prominent background singers featured on some of the greatest songs of the 21st century, a new documentary will highlight the renowned group of musicians known as The Wrecking Crew.
The Wrecking Crew played on hit records for The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Sonny & Cher, Elvis, Nat King Cole, Herb Alpert and the Byrds, for Motown Records, and as part of Phil Spector’s “Wall Of Sound.” Country star Glen Campbell was among the musicians that made up the group, before going on to find solo success.
The new documentary The Wrecking Crew was produced and directed by Denny Tedesco, son of Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco.
The Wrecking Crew will open in select theaters and VOD, beginning March 13. Viewings are scheduled at West Los Angeles’ Nuart Theatre and New York’s IFC Center 5 on March 13, and Nashville’s Belcourt Theatre will show the film on March 31.
