Introducing Staten Island’s newest sensation: The Sha La Das! Making their debut, they offer up two sides of unadulterated holiday cheer - 'Sha La Da La La (Christmas Time)’ b/w ‘I Wish Christmas Time Was Over.’ Discovered by Dunham Records mogul and one man musicial gang, Tom ‘TNT’ Brenneck, you may recognize their doo- wop tinged harmonies from such SMASH records as Charles Bradley’s Victim Of Love. Ring a bell? Well I should hope so!
And if that’s not enough to make you wanna fill yer belly with Egg Nog and cover your house in lights, the Sha La Das are a legitimate family affair. Comprised of Patriarch Bill Schalda with sons, Paul, Will, and Carmine - this ain’t no Patridge family people, this is the REAL DEAL. Side A, penned by Thomas Brenneck and Bill Sr. is a mid-tempo seasonal masterpiece, decorated to the nines with lush harmonies, gratuitous sleigh bells, and an insistent Yuletide groove, courtesy of the Menahan Street Band. Side B composed by Bill Sr. is a classic group harmony carol, sure to warm even the coldest of souls.
