PROSSER - "The Wrecking Crew" is coming to Prosser as part of its fundraising tour.
The award-winning documentary film is about a group of studio musicians who worked on virtually every hit song in the 1960s and 1970s. Nicknamed the Wrecking Crew, the group added their sound to such diverse hits as "Be My Baby," "California Girls," "Strangers in the Night," "Mrs. Robinson," "Viva Las Vegas" and "Mr. Tambourine Man."
Making a movie about musicians can come with a hefty price tag and the director of the film, Danny Tedesco, is raising money to pay the licensing fees for the 131 music cues it uses. Thanks to donations and screenings, the goal has nearly been met.
"The Wrecking Crew" will be in Prosser on Thursday, Nov. 15, with two screenings. The first will be at 2 p.m. and the second at 7:30 p.m. at the Princess Theatre (1226 Meade Ave.). Both screenings will include a question and answer session with Tedesco after the movie.
The film includes interviews with Brian Wilson, Cher, Nancy Sinatra, Herb Alpert, Glen Campbell, Roger McGuinn, Gary Lewis, Dick Clark, Al Jardine, Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz, as well as many of the Crew members themselves.
Tickets are available online at http://wreckingcrewprosser.eventbrite.com and are $15 for general admission or $12 for seniors and students.
