Sydney Rowing Club Jazz With Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


Sunday 11 Oct saw Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters entertaining at Sydney Rowing Club, 613 Great North Road Abbotsford, right on the Parramatta River. We’ll be back on deck, Sunday 20 December, 3 – 6pm Free.

A shout out to our new friends Jack, who requested Sentimental Journey, Tony Madden from the Illawarra Flame Three, Graham and Esther who sell organic Gobblejuice (liquid turkey manure fertilizer) and to everyone else who came up and said hello! Thank you. It was a fun afternoon! See you again 20 December.

Here are some pictures…
