The Wrecking Crew & the T.A.M.I. Show: 1960s California

You don’t know them by name, but you’ve definitely heard them: The Wrecking Crew, a group of highly talented, in-demand studio musicians who played on hundreds of the most successful recordings made in LA in the 60s and 70s. Among them were bassist and guitarist Carole Kaye, probably the only female to make a living as a session musician at the time.

Meanwhile, in Santa Monica, one of the most important moments in popular music history took place over two evenings: the T.A.M.I. Show, a showcase of the biggest names in R&B and rock and roll, like the Supremes, James Brown and the Rolling Stones – and the Wrecking Crew played back-up for most of the performers.

We’ll hear so much great music from the Wrecking Crew and the T.A.M.I. show tonight on Vintage party – you won’t want to miss it. So don’t! Listen to or 98,9, or on our app. Two hours tonight, Wednesday 29 october, from 19h.
