Sha Na Na was in the original Woodstock Festival lineup, starred in the movie “Grease,” hosted the “Sha Na Na” TV series for four years and still plays more than 50 concerts a year, from state fairs, performing art 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!
