Testimonial: “We were delighted to have Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters perform as a trio at our wedding. Their charismatic performance created a wonderful atmosphere for our cocktail reception. The music was wonderful as always and we couldn’t have imagined a better band. We have received so many compliments from guests on the music, thank you Greg Poppleton, Greg Chilcott and Grahame Conlon for making our day such a success!” The Round Pearls
