Rock’s best-kept secrets: The hidden history of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s best-kept secrets will be the topic at the Mukilteo Schools Foundation’s annual breakfast, at 7:30 a.m. Monday at Kamiak High School, 10801 Harbour Pointe Blvd., Mukilteo.

Kent Hartman, author of “The Wrecking Crew,” will tell the behind-the-scenes story of a small group of largely unknown studio musicians who actually played much of the music attributed to groups such as the Beach Boys, the Byrds, the 5th Dimension, Simon &Garfunkel, Sonny &Cher, the Mamas and the Papas, Neil Diamond and many others.

Tickets to the fundraising breakfast are $50 a seat, or $375 for a table of eight.
