The 133rd AES Convention, which takes place at San Fransisco’s Moscone Centre from October 26th-29th, has secured an extremely rare screening of Danny Tedesco’s highly anticipated – and still unavailable – documentary on the famed studio musician group known as The Wrecking Crew.
The rare screening was procured by the AES Convention’s special events Chair Christopher Smith, having been held back from wide release by substantial music licensing fees. “Although gargantuan music licensing fees temporarily preclude wide distribution for The Wrecking Crew, numerous international Film Festival screenings have created a compelling ‘must see ’ buzz for it,” explained AES Convention Committee co-Chair Jim McTigue. “We are extremely fortunate to have arranged a special screening for our 133rd Convention Attendees. In fact, we may want to add a word to our ‘Listen… Learn… Connect…’ AES mandate. I suggest ‘Enjoy…’”
Produced and directed by Tedesco, son of legendary, late Wrecking Crew guitarist Tommy Tedesco, the film features interviews with Brian Wilson, Cher, Roger McGuinn, and many Wrecking Crew members, including musicians who performed on hits for the likes of Elvis, Simon & Garfunkel, The Byrds, The Mamas & The Papas and The Sinatra’s (Nancy & Frank). Smith also reports that Tedesco will hold a Q&A with special guests following the screening.
The screening will be held at San Fransisco’s Moscone Centre.
Time and date will be listed in the soon-to-be posted calendar of events.
