An Evening With Members Of Sha Na Na
Jul 22 , 2019 Doors: 7 p.m. Show: 7:30PM
In a special program celebrating the group’s 50th anniversary, the GRAMMY Museum will welcome various members, past and present, of the legendary group Sha Na Na to the Museum’s Clive Davis Theater for a conversation about their career moderated by Scott Goldman, followed by a performance. Sha Na Na may not have invented Rock nostalgia, but the group has very successfully celebrated the music and memories for the past four decades in concert, in the movies and on TV, and on record. Sha Na Na’s story 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. 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.
