Hello Bakeliters,

Thank you for coming to our January shows. We hope you had a good time. We certainly enjoy playing for you. There are some show photos for you below of Greg Poppleton and The Bakelite Broadcasters at the Roaring ’20s Gin Mill Social on Oxford Street and at Penrith RSL. I wish I had a photo to show you of the speakeasy party we played for in Randwick on 22 January! That was lots of fun, too. But first:

WHAT HAPPENED IN JANUARY?

BACKTRACK FEATURE FILM: Your 1920s-30s singer, Greg Poppleton, features as a patient in this new movie in production starring Academy Award best actor winner, Adrien Brody and Sam Neill. Pleased to say that a scene I shot in January was opposite Adrien Brody. Filming finishes in February in Sydney, Katoomba and Carcoar.

Ditto, just like Slide above. We greatly enjoy playing for you in Penrith and 2014 is now our 5th year at Penrith RSL. Playing swing and jazz from the 1920s and 1930s for chilling and dancing was Greg Poppleton (voc) Chuck Morgan (guitar) Darcy Wright (double bass) and Bob Gillespie (drums).

11-year old Damon Poppleton sat in on drums playing Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen, Bill Bailey and Exactly Like You.
