Doug Bowles and his SingCo Rhythm Orchestra will be offering up swing classics for your dancing or listening pleasure at this year’s Bowie Fall Festival. According to Bob Schaefer of the Friends of Old Town Bowie, the orchestra will be performing between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. on the street across from Fabian House, located at 8519 Chestnut Ave; Bowie, MD 20715. The street will be closed to traffic so there will be plenty of room for dancing.
The SingCo Rhythm Orchestra, formed in 1997, is a 12-piece orchestra that specializes in the hot jazz of the late 1920s, the romantic and swingy tunes of the 1930s and the Goodman, Dorsey, Miller “high swing” of the 1940s. Dancers love the band for its variety that includes dance styles like the Charleston, jitterbug, lindy, waltz, fox trot, rhumba, samba and more.
