Help us meet our monthly goal:
The San Francisco section of the Audio Engineering Society presents The Wrecking Crew Film. This is a one-day only opportunity to see this unreleased film, which includes interivews with Brian Wilson, Nancy Sinatra, Glen Campbell, and many other musicians behind the hits of the 60s and 70s.
Q&A with Producer/Director Denny Tedesco, son of Wrecking Crew guitarist, Tommy Tedesco, immediately follows each showing.
This film has not yet had a commercial release and is not available on DVD. These are the only showings scheduled in Northern California.
Because of the large collection of songs in the film, paying off the music licensing has held up the commercial release. As part of the fundraising campaign, proceeds from this showing will go to the International Documentary Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, for the Wrecking Crew film song licensing fees.
Advance tickets are:
$12 for AES members $15 for general public
$20 at the door, if available
Tickets available here.
Two show times: 2:30 pm and 7:00 pm
This is at the private Auctions By the Bay Theater, on the former naval base, with plenty of free parking, and just a few blocks from the Alameda ferry terminal. It was the old movie house, transformed into an art deco movie palace and only used for special events.
I was just turned onto this very cool site and wanted to introduce myself and my documentary. My name is Denny Tedesco and I am the director of the film, The Wrecking Crew. I'm new at this so forgive me if I mis-step in regards to blogging or sending out news. I noticed the documentary has been mentioned a few times and I wanted to let you know that we're not giving up an hopefully the film will be out this summer.
We are having screenings around the country in the next month or so. Vancouver on the April 15th, Phoenix on April 17th and then to Philadelphia on April 25th and April 28th and 29th. One of your readers from Philadephia turned me onto Surfguitar101.com so I'm hoping we'll get to meet many of the guitar players.
This is my labor of love. My father was guitarist, Tommy Tedesco. If I can figure out how to send a picture, I'd love to share the photos we took of his Telecaster that he worked with on the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, Marketts, Routers, T-Bones and so many more recordings.
Please take a look at the out takes on www.wreckingcrewfilm.com
Best to all of you who play and love the music.
