Thredbo Jazz Festival 2015 – Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


The first weekend in May is always Thredbo Jazz Festival time at Australia’s premier snow resort.

Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters played 3 shows at Thredbo this year and made lots of new friends. Thank you to Festival Organiser, Jen, and Music Directors, Stewart and Brian.

We were even invited to play at some New Zealand jazz festivals next year. More on this in later posts when dates are finalised.

And a shout out to Joseph Boutros at Speech Factory who’ll be recommending the band to his students, particularly noting the way I deliver a song and communicate on stage. Thank you, Joseph.

In the band, Greg Poppleton 1920s vocals and megaphone, Chuck Morgan banjo, guitar and ukelele, Greg Chilcott sousaphone and trombone and Alex Inman-Hislop drums.

Also at Thredbo were such jazz greats as George Washingmachine and his son Arthur Washington (who sat in with the band at Cascades Restaurant on Sunday afternoon), The Nairobi Trio from New Zealand…

…Paul Baker (one of the banjoists in Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters), Bob Porter who sat in with the Bakelites on clarinet for the midnight Saturday night show, Matt McMahon and people like Katie Noonan and Ms Murphy so the broad range of the jazz spectrum was covered.

2015-Thredbo-Jazz-Festival

Three beautiful things about the Thredbo Jazz Festival make it a most wonderful experience for fans of jazz and live music in general.

1, the high calibre of musicianship across all the bands creates many gobsmakingly brilliant moments in very venue,

2, every venue is within easy walking distance of each other so you can’t help but want to sample all the music on offer day and night. This is The Denman where Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters also stayed…

Thank you to the wonderful people at The Denman for putting the band up at Thredbo. The Denman also had The Nairobi Trio in their Apres Bar.

3, walking is a pleasure in this beautiful pedestrian friendly village nestled in the wilds of Kosciusko National Park.

Indeed, I even had some time between shows and enjoying other bands music to go walking in the surrounding moments.

I almost made it to Australia’s highest point, Mt Kosciusko on Sunday. Retired Bakelite Broadcasters double bassist, Dieter Vogt, (who also played in the Graeme Bell, Keith Hounslow Bands and with Joe Zawinul as a trumpet player early in his career) suggested taking the chairlift up and then doing the 4km walk. But by the time I pulled myself away from listening to some excellent bands and got to the top chairlift station, I had to hurry back down the mountain again for a big, fun Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters show at Cascades.

We’d like to play for your event, too. Contact us.

And as one of the guests said, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters live is even better than the albums…
