Excerpted from the Emelin Theater's website:


The Sha Na Na story begins oddly for a group that, in appearance, runs the gamut from greaser to gold lame. 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 '50's rock songs as part of the performances. These proved very popular and eventually rock & roll took over, instruments were added and Sha Na Na – the name comes from the '50's Silhouettes’ hit, “Get A Job” – was born.

Tickets are $62 and can be purchased on the Emelin Theatre's website here.
