It's a high energy trip through the greatest rock and pop hits of all time as, Sha Na Na perform their versions of 22 Top 40 Classics including Rock Around The Clock, At The Ztop, The Loco Motion, Get A Job, and more!
A themed variety show, in which the skits and music centered around Sha Na Na (a '50s-style "greaser" rock band) and the neighborhood in which they lived (an unidentified inner city neighborhood reminiscent of the Bronx). Written by
Another musical sketch was set in Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel". The lyrics to the classic Presley song include the line, "The bellhop's tears keep flowing, the desk clerk's dressed in black." For the record, in this sketch Chico Ryan played the bellhop, while Jon "Bowzer" Bauman was the desk clerk. See more »

And now, here they are, all greased up and ready to sing their brains out, Sha Na Na!

This was a GREAT show! A warm and fun tribute to the 50's!
This was a great show. We loved watching the 50's come alive each week as the band brought back some of the greatest music ever made. Sha Na Na was the GREATEST tribute band ever assembled because they didn't just salute a single band- they saluted an entire decade of music! Boy, just think of the great music of the 50's, with so many great songs! That's what Sha Na Na meant to so many of us- they were our connection to the music of the 50's. There was such personality to the band- and Bowzer was the "leader of the pack." He had a great way of making each show so much fun. Sha Na Na is still touring and I'd recommend seeing them as a fun way to see what music used to be like- FUN!
