De Castros

The De Castros… Music arranged and conducted by Billy May on Capitol.

Peggy, Cherie and Babette DeCastro. (When Babette retired in 1958, a cousin Olgita DeCastro Marino replaced her.) They had a style something like the Andrew Sisters but with a Latin flavor.

The biggest hit for the group was “Teach Me Tonight” from 1954.
