WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID
“Captures the 1920s – 1930s vocal style to perfection,”
— Kevin Jones, jazz critic The Australian and Fine Music Sydney FM
.
“5 STARS. Poppleton’s vocals capture the essence of the swing years with uncanny accuracy.”
— John Gilbert, eJazzNews (U.S.)
.
“Greg Poppleton sang all the top songs of the 1920s. There were many happy faces in the audience. Greg’s interpretations, dancing, swaying, staring and facial gymnastics made the music all the more interesting and amusing.”
— Warren Fahey AM, music historian, record producer (Festival)
.
“Thank you for the most amazing gig and for asking me to sing with you…what an honour. You had the audience eating out of the palm of your hand. They loved you and Cazzbo on sousaphone hit the spot as well. We will definitely get you back some time.” (Re-booked)
— Shelley Rae King, President Illawarra Jazz Club
.
“Damn, I wish I had known you when we had a theatre. We would have called you over to perform with us in a minute! The thing that got both Lynn and me, besides your great voice was your ability to sell a song and your particular energy and pronunciation. ”
— Lance Belville, Writer / Theatre Director, San Francisco
.
“Awesome. Totally fun,”
— Jesse Miner – ‘Hey, Mr Jesse’ Swing Podcast (USA)
.
“Absolutely flooring. Greg Poppleton’s music always hits the spot. So authentic.”
— Women’s Vintage Radio (USA)
.
“Greg has the natural knack of sounding exactly like a 1920s / 1930s singer.”
— John Buchanan, Jazz Concert and Festival Producer
.
“Greg nails the 1920s vocal stylings.”
— Bill Lawson, Radio Adelaide
.
“Boy do these guys swing!”
— Gerard H Beulah Jr, JazzReview.com (USA)
.
“Greg Poppleton was considered a little eccentric growing up in the mid-’70s. As his mates brought the Sex Pistols’ album or sung along to Queen on the radio, he was rifling through the back shelves of music stores looking for recordings from the 1930s Swing Era.”
— Sue Javes, Sydney Morning Herald
