Please join me and a few other great singers as we perform with original members of The Wrecking Crew - Don Randi, Don Peake, and Chuck Berghofer. The Wrecking Crew was a loose collective of session musicians based in Los Angeles whose services were employed for thousands of studio recordings in the 1960s & early 1970s, including several hundred Top 40 hits. The musicians were viewed prestigiously among industry insiders and are now considered one of the most successful and prolific session recording units in music history. The Wrecking Crew were the "go to" session musicians in Los Angeles during this time. They worked with dozens of producers including Brian Wilson, Terry Melcher, Lou Adler, Bones Howe, Jimmy Bowen, and Mike Post. They were teamed with artists as diverse as Jan & Dean, Bobby Vee, Nancy Sinatra, the Grass Roots, Simon & Garfunkel, Glen Campbell, the Partridge Family, David Cassidy, the Carpenters, John Denver and Nat King Cole. Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys produced and co-wrote many of their most famous tracks, and used the Wrecking Crew's talents extensively in the mid-1960s, including on songs such as "Help Me, Rhonda", "California Girls", and "Good Vibrations" and several of their album projects of the period, including Pet Sounds (1966) and the original sessions for Smile.
