Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye
#6 in 1967


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. 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. 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.
