Personal review of Shinig
21 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 15 when Shindig came on, and I too thought it was better than Hullabaloo or any of the many Bandstand type shows of that era. Most of the performances were live, not lipped synched, the dancers were cute but did not detract from the performances, and except for their occasional missteps with a guest host format (Zsa Zsa Gabor, Hedy Lamaar,Mickey Rooney, etc) it was real rock and roll by done with energy and verve. The highlights of the shows for me were the many semi regular performers--Righteous Brothers, Donna Loren, Shindogs-- and their live covers of then current or even at that early date some classics. It was a sad day for me when ABC replaced it with Batman.
