Although the era of doo wop is a thing of the past, Billy Shelton keeps the sound alive with current members of the Spaniels, Patrick Pitre, Gene Stewart, and Pernell Davis. Throughout the years, the group has performed nationwide, spreading the nostalgic warmth of days gone by.
In October of 2015, Patrick Pitre was staying at the New Buffalo Inn & Spa, across the street from El Rancho Grande. The moment he stepped outside of his room, the aroma of Carne Asada grabbed his attention. After returning from fishing at the local Galien River, where he caught a 14 pound pike, the smell finally drew him in. While dining in, Pitre was humming some tunes and caught the owner of El Rancho Grande’s attention. After hours of singing and reminiscing, Patrick and the owner developed a friendship. The rest, is history. The Spaniels now consider El Rancho Grande to be their home away from home. They are now frequent customers and entertain at El Rancho Grande, and you may just be lucky enough to meet them!
