After debuting their new CD, New Deal Rhythms, last month at the Lyceum in Alexandria, Doug Bowles and Alex Hassan joined with Cindy Hutchins to sing out the Dawn of a New Day this past Sunday to a packed audience at the Jordan Kitts Studio in Fairfax. "Dawn of a New Day" was the slogan of the 1939-40 New York World's Fair. The trio's concert was composed of World Fair songs from the 1930s.
While the Bowles, Hassan, and Hutchins trio performs under the name the Retropolitans, their musical themes have contemporary relevance in forward-looking Rosslyn, as the above video makes clear. Let's hope that they're booked for a gig at Artisphere.
