Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters playing a hot instrumental version of Hindustan. Greg can’t play the piano as such. However he has played film roles opposite 3 Academy Award winners (Adrien Brody, Nicole Kidman, Howard Berger) and 1 Golden Globe winner (John Goodman) – so he knows how to play ‘Hollywood movie piano’ just right.
Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters open each Gin Mill Social with an uptempo hour of Sydney’s only genuine 1920s hotcha. Greg Poppleton (1920s vocals in pinstripe suit) Paul Baker in top hat (banjo) Geoff Power (sousaphone and trumpet)
The Gin Mill Social begins. All set for a night of great 1920s cuisine and amazing entertainment.

Geoff Power plays trumpet with Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters – using a teacup mute. I’m told there’s gin served in those teacups, but don’t tell the cops.
Geoff also provides the 1920s rhythm to Greg poppleton and the bakelite Broadcasters on sousaphone. That’s Paul Baker on a very rare, handmade, jewel encrusted banjo.
Greg Poppleton is Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 1930s singer. He doesn’t put on a funny voice. He’s never sung in an American accent. It’s just true, musical and straight from the heart.
I’m sure the text reads, “Wish you were here!”
What’s in those fine bone china teacups?
Greg Poppleton gives that 1920s classic ‘Button Up Your Overcoat’ the acoustic megaphone treatment.
