Sha Na Na may not have invented rock nostalgia, but the group has successfully celebrated the music and the memories for the past three decades.
Their story is an all-encompassing one. They were in the original Woodstock Festival lineup, starred in Grease (the most successful movie musical), hosted the Sha Na Na TV series for four years, and still performed more than 100 concerts, a year. At Woodstock they were the only group without a record deal. Immediately afterwards, they had one and today the group has released more than 25 albums in total, with worldwide sales of more than 20 million. Hit songs include, At The Hop, Pony Time, Let's Dance, Save The Last Dance For Me, The Twist, Party Do!!, Mashed Potato Time and Land of a Thousand Dances.
Sha Na Na taped 97 episodes of the Sha Na Na music variety shows from 1977 to 1981 that were seen and still can be seen in worldwide syndication. The show established the group's credentials as part of the landscape of rock'n'roll America.
The group recently starred in a national tour of Leader of the Pack, the Ellie Greenwich Musical, an autobiographical journey featuring some of the greatest hits of rock'n'roll.
