Join original members of The Wrecking Crew Don Randi, Don Peake, and Chuck Berghofer, along with an incredible band and some of LA’s most talented singers for a night of music that pays tribute to the late, great Glen Campbell and more.
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. The Wrecking Crew 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.
From December 1964 to early March 1965, Glen Campbell was a touring member of The Beach Boys, filling in for Brian Wilson, playing bass guitar and singing falsetto harmonies. Campbell played guitar on the Beach Boys' album Pet Sounds, among other recordings. In 1968, Campbell released "Wichita Lineman", a song written by Jimmy Webb. It was recorded with backing from members of the Wrecking Crew and appeared on his 1968 album of the same name. It reached #3 on the U.S. pop charts and remained in the Top 100 for 15 weeks. The song also topped the American country music chart for two weeks, and the adult contemporary chart for six weeks.
In 1975, Glen Campbell released his thirtieth album, Rhinestone Cowboy, and the song by the same name became Campbell's largest-selling single and one of his best-known recordings. "Rhinestone Cowboy" continues to be used in TV shows and films, including Desperate Housewives, Daddy Day Care, and High School High and was the inspiration for the 1984 Dolly Parton/Sylvester Stallone movie Rhinestone. Campbell won numerous music awards including Grammys for “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”, nominations for “Wichita Lineman” & “Rhinestone Cowboy”, American Music Awards, and Country Music Awards. Glen’s musical career was second to none.
In June 2011, Glen Campbell announced the devastating news that he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. In 2014 Campbell was featured in the documentary I'LL BE ME which examined Alzheimer's and its effect on his musical performances during his final tour across the US with his wife & family. Campbell died on August 8, 2017 at age 81 in Nashville, TN. His legacy lives on through the incredible music he left us.
