50 Rarely Seen Images From Woodstock 1969

A Band From The Movie Grease Played A Set


In the 1978 movie musical Grease, Johnny Casino and the Gamblers was the band that played the Rydell High School dance. The band formed at Columbia University and came on the scene in 1969.

The band covered songs such as “Get a Job by the Silhouettes,” “Duke of Earl,” and some Beach Boys songs. Interestingly, it was Jimi Hendrix who persuaded Woodstock organizers to see the band in concert.
