Join the celebration in Hair, the American tribal love-rock musical that provides a vivid, affectionate look at the flower children of the 1960s. Follow Claude, Berger and Sheila as they try to make sense of their young lives in the turmoil of the anti-Vietnam war movement. As the characters band together in a peace-loving tribe, the music and culture of the era comes to life on stage. Hair is filled with unforgettable songs, like "Aquarius," "Let the Sun Shine In," "Good Morning, Starshine" and "Easy To Be Hard," which went on to become anthems. The unbridled energy and infectious songs will give you an electrifying look back at '60s hippie counterculture. Learn More
For the past three decades, Sha Na Na’s success has been heard in clubs and concert halls and seen in movies and on TV. They performed at Woodstock, starred in the most successful movie musical, Grease, hosted their own TV series entitled “Sha Na Na” and they still manage to play more than 100 concerts per year.
The nucleus of Sha Na Na were undergraduate members of The Kingsmen. The Kingsmen were a glee club ensemble that performed a cappella versions of ’50s rock songs as part of their performances. These shows became increasingly popular and, eventually, rock-n-roll took over and they added instruments and became Sha Na Na. Their name was taken from the Silhouettes hit “Get A Job.”
Woodstock became a defining moment in Sha Na Na’s history. When they appeared second to last, at sunrise, on the final day, it was only their seventh appearance together as a group. They were also the only group there without a record deal – but that was soon after changed.
The group has now amassed more than 25 albums with worldwide sales of more than 20 million.
Another important event for the band was their music variety show, aptly titled Sha Na Na. The show featured their music plus the group members would appear in various comedy skits with the special guests.
The movie “Grease” became a significant event in the groups’ history also. They appeared in the movie as Johnny Casino and The Gamblers and also contributed to the original music score. They performed six Sha Na Na versions of rock classics and one original song, Sandy, which was co-written by Screamin’ Scott Simon. The “Grease” soundtrack was Grammy nominated and certified platinum eight times.
Sha Na Na has even performed with the symphony orchestras in Columbus, OH, Louisville, KY and the National Symphony and Choir at the Capital Fourth Celebration in Washington, DC, just to name a few.
