If you know anything about the ’60s and the music scene, you know that a handful of extremely talented LA session musicians were responsible for the hits of everyone from the Monkees to Simon & Garfunkle, from the Ronettes to Neil Diamond, from Frank Sinatra to the Mamas & the Papas. This group of musicians was known as “The Wrecking Crew.”
The drummer for The Wrecking Crew was Hal Blaine. His nephew, Mike Kravitz, a friend of Michael’s, has put a group of amazing musicians/vocalists together to honor the Wrecking Crew, and to perform where special screenings for the new Wrecking Crew movie (produced by Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco’s son, Denny) is being shown.
The Phoenix debut of the movie is showing at the Skye Lounge in West Phoenix on Tuesday, April 17th. Get there early, as the movie starts at 7pm. The band plays a 40 minute set of classics including: Mr. Tambourine Man, California Dreamin’, Da Doo Ron Ron, Cherry Cherry, He’s A Rebel, and many more.
