The Maniaks Wikipedia
The Maniaks were created in the mold of TV's the Monkees—a band that would also get involved in wild adventures, often on the way to their gigs. The band would meet fictionalized versions of famous celebrities, such as "Jeannette Punchinello" (Annette Funicello), "Rock Hutsut" (Rock Hudson), and "Twiggly" (Twiggy). An exception was comedian Woody Allen, who appeared in an unfictionalized form in Showcase #71.
The Maniaks as a band made no further appearances after Showcase #71. Silver Shannon later appeared in The Power Company limited series, where she worked as a personal assistant to Josiah Power.
In The Power of Shazam #48, a one-issue revival that tied into the Blackest Night event, Amon Tomaz makes a brief reference to the Maniaks.
In the 2017 one-shot Justice League of America: Vixen: Rebirth, Mari McCabe is said to be dating Phil Folger of The Maniaks.Silver Shannon - lead vocals, manager
