Sha Na Na
My kids have been watching the movie GREASE a lot lately. Every time we see the dance scene it reminds me of the time I saw Sha Na Na at Westbury Music Fair – back around 1981/82. My sister and I were also really into GREASE as kids, and I'd watch Sha Na Na's TV show with my Dad, so my parents bought us (and my cousin Debbie) tickets.
After the show some of the members of Sha Na Na came out to greet the fans and sign some autographs. Bowzer, Jocko and Donny signed my play book. We even got our picture taken with Bowzer! The crowd was so thick we didn't know where my Dad was with his camera so we just looked straight ahead. My Dad reached over the crowd and blindly snapped the photo. That's why the shot is from the side and you only see the top of my sister's head.
"Good night, and grease for peace!" – Bowzer
