Fathers’ Day At Concrete Blonde


Hello Bakeliters,

A quick piece of band news

Greg Poppleton & his Bakelite Broadcasters played today for diners and dancers at Fathers’ Day lunch in the beautiful Concrete Blonde Restaurant, Level 1, 33 Bayswater Road, Potts Point

Here’s a pic I’ve copied from Warren Fahey’s Facebook page. Warren wrote, “GREG POPPLETON’S BAKELITE BROADCASTERS return with another serving of songs from the Roaring Twenties and Nervous Thirties. Greg sings & dances like he just stepped out of a Hollywood film and is accompanied by drums, tenor banjo, bass and a huge sousaphone. One of our favourite performers to date. Do not miss this unique artist”

This is our second visit to Concrete Blonde. Every Sunday is Sunday Jazz Lunch from 1 – 4pm. George Washingmachine, Janet Seidel, Jeff Duff and more play for your listening and dancing pleasure on Sundays

And Concrete Blonde showcases French Manouche Gypsy Jazz, Flamenco Rhythms and Latin Beats from 7pm every Wednesday night

But the food! Today I had fried cauliflower with blue cheese and hazelnut vinaigrette. I chose it because cauliflower makes me gag. Not today! Yum, yum. Not a spot left on the plate. Other band members had the chicken, beef cheeks and lamb. They were all melt-in-your-mouth. In fact, the lamb was so melt-in-your-mouth tender it could be pulled away with a gentle prod of the fork. Perfect!

And Concrete Blonde is not expensive either considering the 5 star quality of the food, the friendly service, and the inviting ambience of the room and terrace. Three courses for Sunday Lunch is only $48pp. Spoil yourself. You couldn’t do better than book Concrete Blonde for your company or social club’s Christmas Party. Their booking number is (61 2) 9380 8307. Website: http://www.concreteblonderestaurant.com.au/
