Swing Dancers and Children Dancing


Greg Poppleton sang with his 1920s-1930s trio at the unusual music venue, Central Station, every day of the June Long Weekend for the Transport Heritage Expo.

The band drew a big semi-circle of onlookers at a location people normally rush through to catch their train.

At one point in the second set, I spied a group of six dressed in fine vintage fashion, hesitating outside the semi circle of onlookers.

When I called out to them that they might want to dance to the next song, Somebody Loves Me, it turned out they were swing dancers!

So I took some snaps as they took to the terrazzo to swirl and twirl to the band’s swinging authentic 1920s – 1930s swing.

After the gig, my agent, Tony Jex, from OzManagement, texted me this nice message from a person who was in the audience,

“Greg, thanks for the dedication of Avalon today. By the way, On The Sunny Side of the Street is my funeral song and always gets me teary. Thanks again,” Craig and Baby Steven.

In the Greg Poppleton band:
Greg Poppleton – Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 1930s singer
Geoff Power – sousaphone and trumpet
Grahame Conlon – guitar
Adam Barnard – washboard, snare, bells, blocks and choke cymbal.

And please visit Greg Poppleton’s website at www.gregpoppletonmusic.com with lots of band videos, photos and gig guide.

A Jazz Singer From China


Greg Poppleton sang with his 1920s-1930s trio at the unusual music venue, Central Station, every day of the June Long Weekend for the Transport Heritage Expo.

The band drew a big audience on the station concourse.

In fact, we were the first jazz band to ever attract an audience at a Heritage Transport Expo.

Sousaphonist Cazzbo Johns joined the band for the Sunday session of 1920s – 1930s music

And I invited Cy Chen, a jazz singer from China, holidaying in Australia, to sing two songs – All of Me and Autumn Leaves. And the crowd loved her.

I took some snaps, plus I’ve found some snaps online of the gig for you to see.

In the Greg Poppleton band:
Greg Poppleton – Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 1930s singer
Cazzbo Johns – sousaphone
Grahame Conlon – guitar
Adam Barnard – washboard, snare, bells, blocks and choke cymbal.

And please visit Greg Poppleton’s website at www.gregpoppletonmusic.com with lots of band videos, photos and gig guide.

We play for weddings, corporate events and parties, too.

6 June Phantom Dancer – Silent Health Film From 1920


It’s Phantom Dancer time Tuesday on radio and online – your two hour non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio with Greg Poppleton. What’s on?

Well, there’s a set of ‘Sweet Bands’ from live 1930s-40s radio and some early late night Benny Goodman from 1935. The Velvet Fog, Mel Torme, sings two songs including one when aged 17 in front of Chico Marx’s Orchestra on a CBS Fitch Bandwagon and the last hour is all vinyl.

Listen now at 2SER radio online

Tirelessly searching YouTube for a swingy, jazzy, instructive, or ‘weird and wonderful’ Video of the Week, I’ve found something curiously wonderful – a circa 1920s ‘Women’s Hygiene’ film. It actually is medically educational (and educational as a social history) though the shower scene does verge on the pseudo-educational sexploitation films of the 1950s-60s. Enjoy!

Make sure you come back to this blog, Greg Poppleton’s Radio Lounge, every Tuesday, for the newest Phantom Dancer play list and Video of the Week!

Thank you.
