SHA NA NA celebrated their
50th anniversary in 2020 as well as the 50th anniversary of The WOODSTOCK
FESTIVAL appearing at the original site in BETHEL N.Y.
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 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.
