“Sha Na Na,” the fifties-style rock group that co-starred in “Grease” as “Johnny Casino and the Gamblers,” along with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, have made dozens of records and television shows, in which they starred, are set to begin the year-long celebration of their 50th anniversary next year.
To commemorate 50 years together, they’re planning a series of promotional appearances beginning in December. “Sha Na Na” made their debut, believe it or not, at the legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969. They were paid $300 and went on stage just ahead of Jimi Hendrix. Since then, one-time up and comers like Jay Leno, Steve Martin, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel have opened for them in venues throughout the world. Following their debut stint at Woodstock, “Sha Na Na” starred in 97 episodes of their own national television show and has sold over 20 million albums to date.
Their outrageous stage attire and exaggerated hairdos, that are a “Sha Na Na” trademark, belie their conservative roots as undergraduate a cappella singers in a Columbia University glee club.
As for their longevity, co-founder and drummer Jocko Marcellino says, “Whole new generations get swept up in nostalgia and the sustained power of the “Grease” craze, effectively becoming our potential audience.”
