Sha Na Na may not have invented Rock nostalgia, but the group has successfully – very successfully – celebrated the music and memories for the past four decades … in concert, in the movies, on TV and on record. Sha Na Na’sstory is an all-encompassing one: they were in the original Woodstock Festival lineup, starred in Grease, hosted the Sha Na Na TV Show from 1977 to 1981 for a total of 97 episodes, and still play more than 50 concerts a year, from state fairs, performing arts centers, casino showrooms to mega corporate functions worldwide. And through it all – flower power, hard rock, metal music, disco, hip hop, rap and more – Sha Na Na remains true to the original concept: Rock ‘n Roll is here to stay! The Sha Na Na story begins oddly for a group that, in appearance, runs the gamut from greaser to gold lame. Attired in turtleneck and blue blazers, the nucleus of Sha Na Na were undergraduate members of the Kingsmen, a glee club ensemble at New York’s Columbia University that used to perform a cappella versions of ‘50s Rock songs as part of the performances. These proved very popular and eventually Rock ‘n Roll took over. Instruments were added, and Sha Na Na – the name comes from the ‘50s Silhouettes’ hit, Get A Job – was born.
