3 October Penrith RSL Photos – Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters always enjoy playing for Saturday Jazz at Penrith RSL. The Penrith Jazz audience is happy and friendly and full of characters. We all have a good laugh while enjoying the music and I took some snaps yo can see below. We look forward to visiting Penrith RSL again in 2016.

In the meantime, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters play Sydney Rowers Club next, 613 Great North Road Abbottsford, Sunday 11 October, 3 – 6pm. Free. It’s Jazz on the Deck with great food and views over the Parramatta River.

The Band's name in LIGHTS!

Looking a bit dark in contrast to the sign outside. But this photo taken from the back of the stage shows a full and happy room.

It's hot jazz and swing from the 1920s and 1930s. So you've gotta dance.
