Blurry Pics of 1st 2016 International Jazz Day Concert


Friday night, 29 April, Avoca Beach Picture Theatre – the first 2016 International Jazz Day Event!

Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters entertained with songs and stories from the 1920s and 1930s, including four songs featured in the film, Pal Joey (1957) shown afterwards on the big screen.

The four songs were, The Lady is a Tramp (which will be on the band’s new CD to be released in August), There’s a Small Hotel, Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered featuring reeds man Paul Furniss (the only non 20s-30s song) and My Funny Valentine played by Grahame Conlon as a guitar solo.

The audience had such a fun time, we’ve been invited back for another Avoca Beach Picture Theatre concert. Matt Baker, Adrain Cunningham and Janis Siegel always play at the Avoca Beach when they visit from New York City.

Here are some blurry action pics from the night…
