What was Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters and Sydney’s only 1920s Orchestra, The Lounge Bar Lotharios up to in November? The facts laid bare…

GIN MILL SOCIAL RESIDENCY  – THE ROCKS VILLAGE BIZARRE

Every Friday in November it was a thrill for Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters to play to such warm and enthusiastic audiences at The Gin Mill Social at The Rocks Village Bizarre. In the band intermissions, audiences were dazzled by Tore the Fire Dancer and Penny the Fan Dancer.

In Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters at The Gin Mill Social were,
Greg Poppleton – authentic 1920s singer and megaphone
Geoff Power – sousaphone and trumpet (7 Nov.)
Greg Chilcott – sousaphone and trombone (14, 21, 28 Nov.)
Paul Baker – banjo
Laurie Bennett – drums

The Gin Mill Social at The Rocks Village Bizarre continues on Fridays until December 19 with the Emma Hamilton Trio, Tore and Penny. It’s free!

See more photos at Greg Poppleton’s Radio Lounge Blog. Type 7 Nov, 14 Nov, 21 Nov or 28 Nov in the blog’s search box to see pictures from all the shows.
