Gin Mill Social, Slide, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters, 25 April 2014


Anzac Day, 25th April, and another delightful evening of 1920s at the Gin Mill Social at Slide.

I propped up a camera next to the piano and let the film roll to extract a few action frames…

As always, the Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters Trio, kicked off Sydney’s exclusive Roaring 20s night of 1920s cuisine, cocktails in tea cups, music, fan dancing, tap dancing and juggling fun.

I wish I could have taken some snaps of the lovely audience in front of the stage and up in the mezzanine – but the Bakelite’s and I were having too much fun singing and playing the songs of the 1920s to all the best people.

The minute you walk through the Gin Mill Social door, you instantly become the best people. Are you and your best coming to the next Gin Mill Social, Friday 16 May? Tickets.
