1920s Orchestra ‘The Lounge Bar Lotharios’ Spring Into Jazz.
Spring Into Jazz 2014. Authentic, Sydney-based, 1920s Dance Orchestra, The Lounge Bar Lotharios, entertained an enthusiastic audience of picnickers and dancers with a 3 hour concert of energetic 1920s hotcha from the historic Art Deco Music Shell in St Leonards Park, North Sydney.
Playing Roaring ’20s classics like Shanghai Shuffle, Let’s Do The Breakaway and If I Had A Talking Picture Of You, all from original 1920s vintage scores, The Lounge Bar Lotharios, kept the crowd happy and singing along on a warm November afternoon, despite the blustery winds.
“Congratulations to Greg Poppleton, Geoff Power and the whole Lounge Bar Lotharios 1920s Orchestra! You presented what is a rare thing nowadays: 11 well-trained musicians, from young to “well traveled” playing a specific style of jazz with passion and expertise. The group sounded cohesive and perfectly balanced. I loved the tone of the sousaphone as well as the authentic sounding drum kit which was manned by a very young drummer, for the genre, and who had obviously does his homework on 1920/30s music.
It was just a pleasure to work with all of you and great to share in the excellent atmosphere you created for all those who attended. Good to see so many smiling faces in the crowd!
