Shindig! was an American musical variety series from September 1964 until January 1966. The show was hosted by Jimmy O’Neill, a disc jockey from Los Angeles and focused on popular performers including Bo Diddley, Sonny & Cher, The Beach Boys, James Brown, and The Supremes. The show featured also a dance troupe called the Shin-diggers, who accompanied the music acts of the week. Tina was three times guest in the first season of the show, performing solo and with other acts, but every time without Ike. Also in the credits, only Tina is mentioned.
