The Casinos were a multi-member pop/doo-wop group from Cincinnati, Ohio that became famous during the late 1960s. Formed in 1958 and led by Gene Hughes (d. February 3, 2004, age 67), other members included Bob Armstrong, Pete Bolton, Mickey Denton, and Ray White. They are best known for their soulful Top 10 rendition of the John D. Loudermilk-penned romantic ballad, "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" (1967), an oldies classic first recorded in 1962 by Don Cherry as a country song. The Casinos also had a minor hit with the Don Everly-penned "It's All Over Now" (1967).
