* Sha NA Na.

A recent email.


One of the acts that we are considering for our dad’s surprise 65th birthday party is Sha Na Na. What are your thoughts on the group.
Thanks in advance,


The current Sha Na Na lineup is very entertaining. That said, would you hire The Beatles without John Lennon (Bowzer) and Paul McCartney (Johnny Contardo)? The picture I’m seeing has 3-Ringos (in the middle) make that 2-originals (Jocko Marcellino and Donny York) and 1-long time member (Screamin’ Scott Simon)…the other 4-guys pictured, are not original members and never appeared on Sha Na Na’s TV show.

Thanks for reading!

    Why don’t you contact Johnny Contardo who was Sha’s lead singer and have him perform at the party? I saw Contardo on an Oldies cruise and he was terrific.

    A couple of years ago our CC had Johnny Contardo backed by local Florida band the Fabulons and it was a great show.

    Bowzer and Contardo were basically the group.
