Sunday Carnival Victoria Room. Sunday 17th August
It’s always exciting to sing the songs of the 1920s and 1930s at the Sunday Carnival in the Victoria Room.
It was a duo Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters. I was accompanied by Tony Gardner at the grand piano. In between songs he let loose on a couple of instrumental rags and boogies. We hit the ’20s hard between spectacular displays by dancers, ribbon aerialists and astounding magic acts.
We’d gladly play for your party, too. Talk to Tony at OzManagement. Photo by Rick Monk…
Gin Mill Social. Friday 22nd August
It’s the 1920s at Slide on Oxford St when the Gin Mill Social comes to town. SOLD OUT SHOW, I think that says it all about this unique night of great 1920s entertainment, cuisine, authentic art deco architecture and atmosphere. The next Gin Mill Social is Friday 24 October. Are you coming? Tickets.
Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters Trio, (Greg, 1920s vocals and megaphone. Geoff Power, trumpet and sousaphone, Paul Baker, banjo and top hat) get the speakeasy of 1920s cuisine and hooch, fan dancers, aerials, jugglers and tap dancers going with a high energy set of 1920s hits…
