Australia’s newest 1920s Dance Orchestra is – The Lounge Bar Lotharios – launched on 28 April. I sing with the band and recorded the show for the Orchestra’s ‘Sizzle – Reel’ below. I hope you enjoy it

Who Are The Lounge Bar Lotharios?
The Lounge Bar Lotharios is a 1920s Orchestra like no other. Sydney’s only original and authentic 1920s singer with Sydney’s Top Ten world-touring classic jazz musicians playing original arrangements from the era for your listening and dancing pleasure
Can you imagine what it would have been like dancing to the world’s best dance orchestras onboard the luxurious Ile de France, in an excitingly dangerous Harlem speakeasy like The Cotton Club, or rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous in the lap of luxury at the Great Gatsby mansion?
Curious? So were Geoff Power, world-renowned 1920s-style jazz trumpeter and Greg Poppleton, Sydney’s only authentic 1920s singer. So they hand-picked ten world-touring classic jazz musicians. And under maestro Geoff’s direction and with Greg’s authentic Jazz Age singing, they turned them loose on Geoff’s library of original sweet and stomping 1920s music dance scores
You’ve probably seen lots of 1920s bands on YouTube. Maybe you even have a CD or mp3 or two of the hot dance bands of the 1920s at home. Great, aren’t they?
But how do you get to experience the magic of a 1920s Dance Orchestra, live, today? Well, prepare yourself for a big surprise. A positively shocking one
The Lounge Bar Lotharios take you on a trip back in time. In an instant, you’ll find yourself attending a 1920s party where time has stood still. Just you, your fellow flappers and dappers and 20s maestro Geoff Power conducting three hotcha horns, three sinful saxes, piano, banjo, tuba, drums and Sydney’s amazingly authentic 1920s dance band singer, Greg Poppleton
We look forward to playing for you at your wedding, function, event and party. To make your enquiry and book this exciting, new, 1920s Dance Orchestra, please contact singer Greg Poppleton via the Contact page at www.bakelitejazz.com
