Greg Poppleton sang with his 1920s-1930s trio at the unusual music venue, Central Station, every day of the June Long Weekend for the Transport Heritage Expo.
The band drew a big audience on the station concourse.
In fact, we were the first jazz band to ever attract an audience at a Heritage Transport Expo.
Sousaphonist Cazzbo Johns joined the band for the Sunday session of 1920s – 1930s music
And I invited Cy Chen, a jazz singer from China, holidaying in Australia, to sing two songs – All of Me and Autumn Leaves. And the crowd loved her.
I took some snaps, plus I’ve found some snaps online of the gig for you to see.
In the Greg Poppleton band:
Greg Poppleton – Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 1930s singer
Cazzbo Johns – sousaphone
Grahame Conlon – guitar
Adam Barnard – washboard, snare, bells, blocks and choke cymbal.
