A freshĀ Greg Poppleton Jazz Deco band line-up played today at Sydney’s Edwardian Central Station Concourse for the annual Transport Heritage Expo.

With Greg Poppleton, authentic 1920s-1930s singer was,
– Damon Poppleton alto sax
– Paul Baker banjo
– Dave Clayton double bass.

A woman rushed up to my megaphone and placed a long-stemmed red rose in it while we were playing.

We’re at the Transport Heritage Expo Monday 11 June, too. Playing from 10am – 2pm with sousaphone doubling trumpet, guitar doubling banjo and washboard doubling snare.

Here’s some more photos from today. Though there must be thousands more out in the wide blue internet from all the clicks and film taken today.
