SHA NA NA
June 1 @ 8:00 pm
Rock & Roll doo-wop legends, SHA NA NA combined their love for the classics of rock & roll with a dynamic theatrical approach as fellow college students at Columbia University in New York. In 1969 they appeared just before Jimi Hendrix (who help get them the gig) at the Woodstock festival in their eighth professional show.
The band rose to stardom with four seasons of their own worldwide television series, The Sha Na Na Na Show and their portrayal of Johnny Casino and the Gamblers in the movie Grease (the highest grossing musical film of all-time). Sha Na Na performed six songs on the Grease soundtrack and the song “Sandy,” sung by John Travolta, was co-written by the band’s piano man Screamin’ Scott Simon.
