Corporate Christmas Party 9 December


The six-piece Greg Poppleton jazz deco band had 550 guests dancing at the huge end-of-year celebration.

Sound, staging and lights were supplied with the band by Tony Jex. This one stop shop A/V deal when you book Greg Poppleton saves you time and money. It guarantees you perfect sound and ambience every time.

The band’s swing dance partners gave an exciting, acrobatic swing dance exhibition. They danced to three songs by Greg Poppleton – Exactly Like You, Five Foot Two Eyes Of Blue and Walkin’ My Baby Back Home.

Our swing dance partners were also commissioned to give staff members six weeks of dance lessons leading up to the event. This was to practice two mass choreographic routines to develop departmental bonding and which were a highlight of the night.

The routines were danced to songs from two of Greg Poppleton’s albums.

First, the balboa group danced to Greg Poppleton’s ‘The Charleston’ from his ‘Doin’ the Charleston’ album.

Then the Lindy Hoppers hopped to Greg Poppleton’s ‘It’s Only A Paper Moon’ from his 2006 album, ‘The Phantom Dancer’.
