The Spaniels

Saturday, April 20, 2019


This rhythm and blues, doo-wop group is best known for the musical hit "Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight." Referred to by many as the first successful Midwestern rhythm and blues group, the Spaniels became one of the first two artists to sign with Vee-Jay Records - the first large and independent African American-owned record label. The Spaniels' hits on Vee-Jay included "Baby It's You," "Peace of Mind," and "Everyone's Laughing." When "Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight" was featured in movies such as "American Graffiti" and "Three Men and a Baby," an entire new generation was exposed to the group's music. 

Pookie Hudson's dying wish was that the group continue on in his name and perform all the greatest hits he wrote and produced. The group kept their promise to do so. Today's members of The Spaniels are Wellington "Bay" Robinson, Steven Wade, James Ivy, James Faison, and Lester "Earl" Wade. The Spaniels recorded a single in 2010 named "Baby Sweets" (a remake of the 1950s recording) and on the flip side "Let's Strike a Match," both of which continue to get rave reviews around the world.

Take a trip with us down memory lane! Re-live the clean wholesome days of 1950s doo-wop sound!
