The Best…Sha Na Na

Who doesn’t just like saying this group’s name over and over? Okay, well, you may not, but I do. And I’m hilarious (in my own head).

Sha Na Na is an American rock and roll group. The name is taken from a part of the long series of nonsense syllables in the doo-wop hit song “Get a Job”, originally recorded in 1957 by the Silhouettes.

Billing themselves as “from the streets of New York” and outfitted in gold lamé, leather jackets, and pompadour and ducktail hairdos, Sha Na Na performs a song and dance repertoire of classic fifties rock and roll, simultaneously reviving and sending up the music and 1950s New York street culture.

The group also hosted the Sha Na Na syndicated variety series that ran from 1977 to 1981.
