Sunday 9 November, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters had the great pleasure of singing and playing authentic 1920s jazz and hotcha at the prestigious Sunday Jazz Lunch at the Riverbend Restuarant, Wisemans Ferry.
For three years now, some of the big names in Australian Jazz have played at the magical Jazz Sunday Lunches at the Riverbend, held once every two months (12-3pm) at this cosy, friendly getaway by the majestic Hawkesbury River. They include Janet Seidel, Bob Barnard, Sandie White and many others. In fact, check the Riverbend website because the Janet Seidel Trio will be at the Riverbend next.
Everyone at the Riverbend had a great time, enjoying the 1920s vocals and jazz and the great food and atmosphere. The relaxing country atmosphere at Wisemans can’t help but lift the shoulders and bring a smile to your face. The bustle of city life seems so far away even though the Sydney CBD is only just over an hours drive from this beautiful headland on the Hawkesbury surrounded by two National Parks.
When you arrive, you are served a delicious antipasto plate as your first course. You then sit back and enjoy the music and the friendly staff take your orders for your main course which is served during the music break.
Just an hour from Sydney, on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, the Riverbend Restaurant is part of Australis Retreat, where you can stay to enjoy the music, the town, golf, the river, the bush and the restaurant. The river and hills offer some of the most beautiful scenery in New South Wales.
The Riverbend Restaurant address is 5564 Old Northern Road, Wisemans Ferry, New South Wales, Australia
Bookings: (02) 4560 0500. The Riverbend and Australis Retreat are also wedding reception and conference function specialists.
