Reminder: “The Spaniels Forever” to bring classic R&B to La Porte Sunday


The La Porte Community Concert Association will present the R&B quintet “The Spaniels Forever” at Kesling Intermediate School Auditorium, 306 E. 18th St., LaPorte, at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 17.

Concertgoers should use Door 14 at the school.

The Spaniels’ roots go back to 1948 at Roosevelt High School in Gary, when classmates Billy Shelton and Pookie Hudson began singing together. In the Spring of 1954, the Hudson-written single, “Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight,” rose to the Top 5 on the rhythm & blues chart and became an international hit.

The group’s repertoire today includes a broad range of rhythm & blues, pop and rock hits and some gospel, where they all got their beginning in singing.

This concert is included in the LaPorte Community Concert season ticket. The public may purchase tickets at the door for $20 for adults and $5 for students through high school.

For more information, call 219-362-5292.
