Biography

Formed in 1958 in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, the Casinos originally comprised Gene Hughes (d. 3 February 2004), Glen Hughes, Pete Bolton, Joe Patterson and Ray White. After gaining popularity locally, they signed with the small Terry Records and covered the Carla Thomas R&B ballad ‘Gee Whiz’, with no success. They then switched to the local Fraternity Records and recorded a series of singles that also failed commercially. The group, still sporting a clean-cut look and a 50s-orientated doo-wop sound, grew to nine members by the mid-60s, including Bob Armstrong, Tom Mathews, Bill Hawkins and Mickey Denton. Finally, in 1967, they reached the US Top 10 with a cover version of John D. Loudermilk’s ballad, ‘Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye’. The Casinos continued to record into the 70s and a version of the group was still performing in Cincinnati in the 90s, but there were no further hits.
