Glen Street Theatre Show


I have uploaded some band photos for you

These are from the 1920s and 1930s ‘Music At The Glen Show’ which Greg Poppleton & his Bakelite Broadcasters played on 20 March 2012. Lots of swinging tunes and laughs in between with virtuosic instrumental interludes by the band to keep the 90% full house entertained

It was an honour to be asked out of the blue to sing in a ‘Music At The Glen’ Concert. Other shows in the 2012 Glen Street Concert Series include Sydney Savoy legend, Christopher Hamilton, and renowned Sinatra singer, Tom Burlinson – so the standard of music at the Glen is very high with household names and internationally renowned acts. It was a thrill to be counted among them

Glen Street wrote about the Greg Poppleton and his Bakelite Broadcasters’ concert, “The concert was extremely well appreciated and we were delighted to have you at Glen Street”

I’ll be back for two shows at Glen Street in June to be radio announcer for an 18-piece swing band. And there is talk I may return with a smaller Bakelite Broadcasters dance band for you at Glen Street in August

The Bakelite Broadcasters are the best in Sydney classic jazz. For the Glen Street show the band included…
– Greg Poppleton is Sydney’s only authentic 1920s and 1930s dance band singer. He is also an actor and voiceover artist and has appeared in the Hollywood movies Chronicles of Narnia Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Moulin Rouge.
– Al Davey, trumpet and trombone, is in huge demand across Australia as both a brass player and band leader
– Paul Furniss, alto and tenor saxes and clarinet, is described as one of Australia’s top jazz musicians on Wikipedia
– Monique Lysiak is one of Sydney’s foremost and most respected jazz pianists
– Darcy Wright was ranked by Rolling Stone in the World’s Top Ten Jazz Bassists
– Lawrie Thompson tours the world as a classic jazz drummer

You can have the trio to 6-piece Bakelite Broadcasters wow your guests at your wedding, corporate event and Great Gatsby party, too

Or, for big events, hire the new 10-piece authentic 1920s dance orchestra, the Lounge Bar Lotharios

Both bands can be booked on the Bakelite Broadcasters’ website: www.bakelitejazz.com
