Several former members of the doo-wop singing group Sha Na Na are reuniting on Long Island this weekend for a special one-time-only performance.

Sha Na Na played at Woodstock in 1969 and appeared in the 1979 musical classic, "Grease." The group is appearing Saturday at Hofstra University's 75th anniversary celebration.

The reunion is being organized by a longtime Hofstra University linguistics professor who in 1969 helped form Sha Na Na. He only stayed with the group two years, but says he is thrilled to reunite with former and current members.

Other performers on the bill include Public Enemy, Blue Oyster Cult, Fountains of Wayne, Lisa Lisa, and hip-hop star Trey Songz.

The show is being billed, "From doo-wop to hip-hop."
