“My thanks to the band. They were superb. They made the event wonderful,” Jan, Backyard 1920s-30s theme Birthday Party, 1 Feb 2020.
Thank you, Jan!
We love playing birthdays. Being asked to play for a birthday to relive a great backyard birthday party we played at ten years before is a huge honour. It speaks volumes about Greg Poppleton’s 1920s-30s music.
It was a hot, hot day, but the cool trees in the backyard where the band played and a slight breeze made for a pleasant afternoon.
Guests talked and mingled under shady trees and a under marquee as the band entertained with songs from the 1920s – 1930s. The Greg Poppleton band: authentic 1920s-30s vocals, trumpet doubling sousaphone, banjo, and clarinet doubling bass saxophone played under a small marquess to protect the instruments from direct sun.
Greg also went into the party with his megaphone to sing personally to all the guests. This always gets a great reaction.
Some of the songs Greg sang included ‘the Charleston’, ‘I Can’t Give You Anything But Love’, ‘El Mansiero’ and ‘Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuss auf Liebe eingestellt’ which was the theme song of Marlene Dietrich.
Tony Jex from OzManagement Entertainment provided the balanced sound and always at a reduced rate for the Greg Poppleton 1920s-30s band.
