LAS VEGAS—Rock and roll doo-wop stars Sha Na Na will bring their high school hop dance hits to Suncoast Showroom on Feb. 11-12.
Rising to stardom in the hit musical “Grease” as Johnny Casino and the Gamblers, Sha Na Na combined their penchant for classic rock and theatrics to become a prolific force in bringing doo-wop hits into the 1970’s. The band performed six songs on the Grease soundtrack, including their renditions of “Blue Moon,” “Hound Dog, “Tears on My Pillow” and more.
Sha Na Na hosted its own variety show that ran from 1977-1981, which was one of the most-watched programs in syndication during its run. The series featured performances of 1950’s and 1960’s doo-wop hits, plus comedy skits and more. The all-star special guest lineup included artists like Chubby Checker, the Ramones, Ethel Merman, Billy Crystal, and many more.
In 2013, the group released “Sha Na Na – Greaser High School Hop,” a compilation of famous 50’s and 60’s classic songs.
Showtime is 8:30 p.m. Tickets start at $19.95 plus tax and fees, and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000; online at www.suncoastcasino.com; or in-person at The Orleans Box Office, and gift shops inside Suncoast, Gold Coast and Sam’s Town. Tickets may also be purchased the day of the show (depending upon availability) at the venue box office.
