Al Jardine Concert--August 20, 2005

Al Jardine
Bonfante Gardens, Gilroy, CA
August 20, 2005

A semi-private benefit show for the music program at Mt. Madonna High School. About 200 in attendance; this show was at the Amphitheater in the local Bonfante Gardens theme park.

The opening act was the local band Live Action Heroes, featuring Stevie Heger, who has played with Al in the past. They performed an opening set which segued into Al's set. The Live Action Heroes then played backup for Al. (Al's normal band, The Endless Summer Band was playing a private show in San Diego that night). The setlists for both Live Action Heroes and Al Jardine differed slightly from what was written on the stage setlists. "Kokomo" was dropped from Al's set. "Dance Dance Dance" and "Do You Wanna Dance" were the final numbers before Al came on stage. Before the dance numbers, the band looked to see if Al was going to join them onstage, but he told them to keep going, and they did the dance numbers without him.

A very informal show with minimal (if any) security. Out of the 200 in attendance, about 6-10 were there just to see Al. The rest were there because of their affiliation with Mt. Madonna High School.

Here's HeyJude's review, complete with some pictures.
