The Po-Faced Four – Edwardian Quartet – Sensible Music!


Sunday 6 October was a beautifully warm, blue sky day, perfect for music on the lawn by Greg Poppleton’s new Edwardian ensemble – The Po-Faced Four in their debut performance.

Serenading promenaders on the flower perfumed lawns of Vaucluse House in Sydney for an Edwardian themed open-day, The Po-faced Four, struck the moral high ground with such instructive toe-tappers as ‘She Is More To Be Pitied Than Censured’, ‘After The Ball Is Over’, and ‘She May Have Seen Better Days’.

“A big thank you to the band. It was wonderful having them at our Vintage Sunday which was a very successful day for us and the band’s participation really contributed to it being so. I know the crowd really enjoyed the music.” Sienna Brown, Events Organiser, Sydney Living Museums

You can have the Po-Faced Four entertain and instruct you, too. Songs of moral rectitude go perfectly with high tea and cucumber sandwiches. Or secure the services of the Po-Faced Trio (voc, piano, double bass) or Po-Faced Duo (voc, piano) for more intimate soirees. Perfect for teenage parties. Mothers, a guaranteed prophylactic against drug use and teen pregnancies. Enquire at bookings@bakelitejazz.com
