THE VENUE

The Hollywood Bowl - opened in 1922 and with a capacity of 17,256 - is an amphitheater in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles, California, that is used primarily for music performances. The Bowl is known for its band shell, a distinctive set of concentric arches that graced the site from 1929 through 2003, before being replaced with a somewhat later one beginning in the 2004 season. The shell is set against the backdrop of the Hollywood Hills and the famous Hollywood Sign to the Northeast. The Bowl refers to the shape of the concave hillside the amphitheater is carved into. The Bowl is owned by the County of Los Angeles and it’s the home of Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic (it’s a tradition to go to the Bowl to hear “Symphonies Under the Stars”) and the host of hundreds of musical events each year. In 1943 the great, late Frank Sinatra was probably the first genuine pop star to play here, and since The Beatles played here in 1964, the Bowl has become the ultimate venue for any rock band to play. In the 60s the Bowl decided to present a few pop concerts under the stars that would be sure to please a younger audience.


THE BANDS

Simon and Garfunkel: Originally known as Tom and Jerry, Simon and Garfunkel were a music duo from New York City, consisting of singer, songwriter and guitarist Paul Simon and singer and guitarist Art Garfunkel. A month before the Hollywood Bowl gig, Simon and Garfunkel appeared at the legendary Monterey International Pop Festival. That year, they also contributed heavily to the soundtrack to Mike Nichols’ film “The Graduate”, which was released on January 21, 1968, and instantly rose to No.1 as an album, thanks to one of their biggest hit, “Mrs. Robinson”.

The Lovin’ Spoonful: The Lovin’ Spoonful were one of the most famous and beloved American rock band of all time. The band was formed in January 1965 in New York City and featured John Sebastian on lead vocals, harmonica, autoharp, rhythm guitar, and piano, Steve Boone on vocals, bass, organ, and piano, Joe Butler on vocals and drums, and Zal Yanovsky on vocals, lead guitar, and bass. In June 1967, a month before the Hollywood Bowl gig and a month after the released of their fifth album, “You Are A Big Boy Now”, Zal Yanovsky leaves the band and was replaced by Jerry Yester on vocals, lead guitar, and piano, formerly of The Modern Folk Quartet. The new lineup of the band play at the Hollywood Bowl and a couple of months later, in September 1967, released their new sixth album, “Everything Playing”.

The video portion ends at 2:24. The Spoonful's relatively rapid demise was caused not by the band's music falling out of public favor but by a drug bust in B...
