The Casinos

The Casinos was a nine-member doo-wop group from Cincinnati, Ohio, led by Gene Hughes. They are best-known for their John Loudermilk written song “Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye,” which hit #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1967, well after the end of the doo-wop era.

The group was based around Hughes and his brothers Glenn and Norman, and they signed a deal with Fraternity Records. “Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye” was their first single, and its vocal harmony and organ interlude would not have been out of place in a Top Ten hit from ten or fifteen years earlier. The track reached #28 in the UK Singles Chart in March 1967.[1] They tried to follow it up with a Don Everly penned song, “It’s All Over Now,” but that only hit U.S. #65.

After his time with the Casinos was over, Gene Hughes became a country music promoter, but he died on 3 February 2008, at the age of 67, from complications following a car accident.

Bob Smith, who later joined the group along with Bob Armstrong, went on to an illustrious career as a Cincinnati police officer. Smith still resides in Cincinnati, living in near anonymity.
