Several bands performed Friday at the ninth annual "Hooverstock," Hoover High School's musical tribute to the Woodstock festival. Admission was $5; proceeds go toward the school's music program. A live recording of this year's "Hooverstock" will be made into a CD and will be available at the school next week, Hoover music director Craig Kupka said. "They love this stuff," Kupka said. "They want to play, record and write music so bad, but you have to remind them how important their other classes are, too."

It’s been 40 years since Sha Na Na first started rockin’ and rollin’ after they got their big break opening for Jimi Hendrix at the Woodstock Festival. The ’50s-style band went on to co-star in the film “Grease” as Johnny Casino and the Gamblers with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Then they landed their own television show broadcast over NBC affiliates in Burbank and in worldwide syndication from 1977 to 1981. They will be celebrating their anniversary with two shows this week in Glendale.
