Sha Na Na

Sha Na Na er et rock'n'roll-band, oprindeligt fra New York City. De spiller mest coverversioner af gamle 50'erhits, selvom der i deres pladeudgivelser gemmer sig numre af egen produktion. Sha Na Na blev nok mest kendt for deres optræden i filmen Grease som Johnny Casino & the Gamblers – det orkester, der spillede til skolefesten. Et af musiknumrene fra Grease ("Sandy") er i øvrigt skrevet af Sha Na Na-medlemmet Screamin' Scott Simon.
