They were the studio musicians behind some of the biggest hits in the 1960s and 70s. From “Be My Baby” to “California Girls;” “Strangers in the Night” to “Mrs. Robinson;” “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’” to “Up, Up and Away;” and from “Viva Las Vegas” to “Mr. Tambourine Man,” the group dubbed The Wrecking Crew played on them all. Six years in a row in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, the Grammy for “Record of the Year” went to Wrecking Crew member recordings.

The Musicians Hall Of Fame And Museum has on exhibit the very instruments that these musicians used to record many of these classic hits. The Museum will constantly be adding new exhibits for you to enjoy from all genres of music . The museum is divided into cities that have a history of recorded music . Cities like Detroit, Nashville , Muscle Shoals , L.A , Memphis and N.Y . All of these places had musicians who were there when the recording industry was evolving and were able to play whatever was needed of them regardless of style . They had nick names like The Swampers, The A TEAM, The Memphis Boys , The FUNK BROTHERS, and The WRECKING CREW . Some of these studio bands actually became hit bands themselves like” Booker T and The M.G’s” and” TOTO” . During the late 50′s , through the mid 80′s , these groups of studio musicians played on over eighty to ninety percent of all the records recorded in these music centers .
