Sydney Hail Storm On 100th Anzac Day And Snowmen Appear!


A beautifully warm sunny day in Sydney until around 4:30pm and then…Some Sydney hail storm pictures from a street in Newtown…

And some extra pics below of water cascading off Sydney Harbour Bridge into the Harbour and ice on Maroubra Beach!

Hail falling and masses of water rushing down the gutters.

30 Min. Corporate 1920s – 1930s Show – Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters entertained at a corporate event in Doltone House in the City with a hot 30 minute jazz and swing from the 1920s and 1930s show. We were joined by SwingKatz who danced the Charleston to the band in the middle of the set and got lots of delegates up on the dance floor.

Here are two quick shots from the night…

From 1st to 3rd May 2015, Thredbo’s famous Alpine Village will host a strong cast of Jazz talent, including Katie Noonan, Ms Murphy, Billy Burton, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters and many more who are sure to keep festival-goers entertained.

Joining authentic 1920s jazz singer, Greg Poppleton, in his Bakelite Broadcasters will be Chuck Morgan (banjo and uke – Janet Seidel Trio) Greg Chilcott (sousaphone and trombone – The Brassholes) and Alex Inman-Hislop (drums – The Lounge Bar Lotharios).

Over the course of the weekend, guests will see Thredbo Village transform into a true celebration of spectacular Jazz in Australia as 19 stellar acts perform in a distinctive mix of venues. As one of the most unique events on the Australian festival calendar, visitors to the Thredbo Jazz Festival are given the chance to see their favourite artists more than once as they perform additional shows in altering venues over the weekend.

From cosy restaurants to indoor music halls; intimate bars to alfresco pool-side stages, Thredbo Jazz Festival boasts acts and venues that appeal to everyone.

Greg Poppleton has been described as having an 'uncanny knack' of sounding exactly like a 1920s singer.
