1920s Birthday Party – Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


What a great time was had by all at a REAL Great Gatsby party with Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters at a real harbourside mansion (with swimming pool – and I can’t tell you more than that).

Authentic 1920s singer and band, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters

Authentic 1920s singer and band, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters. Glenn Henrich on the left is playing a 1930s vintage baritone sax. Note the mouthpiece is ‘backwards’ compared to modern bari sax designs.

Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters, as always, where the little big band for the evening specialising in the songs of the 1920s for dancing.

And when I write ‘little big band’ here’s the line up:
Greg Poppleton – Australia’s only authentic 1920s singer and megaphone
Geoff Power – sousaphone and trumpet
Glenn Henrich – original 1930s Selmer baritone sax, alto sax, clarinet and piccolo!
Grahame Conlon – jazz guitar and banjo.

Some pix for you. Call or email Tony Jex to book Greg Poppleton for your birthday party, wedding and corporate event. We’re playing another birthday party in just a few days. Tony Jex: tony@ozmanagement.com | 61 2 9567 7171 | 61 407 941 263
