Great find!

FYI, John Williams joined Bobby Darin’s show to celebrate Darin‘s 10th anniversary in show business at the Cocoanut Grove. This event took place on March 8, 1966, just one month after Williams’ 34th birthday and 2 weeks after scoring „The Time Tunnel“.

Oh wow, that's cool!  I've performed there.  It was the Cocoanut Grove at the Ambassador Hotel from 1921 to 1989 and was also the location where Ben (Dustin Hoffman) scored in The Graduate and sadly was where Robert Kennedy was assassinated.  Today, it is an arts school, and the Cocoanut Grove is the auditorium at the school.
