One couple at the bar, enjoying Greg Poppleton and band, told me that our energetic, swinging, 1920s performance made them think they were back in New York City.
With Greg Poppleton in the band were Paul Furniss clarinet, Paul Baker banjo and Greg Chilcott sousaphone.
Pia has put together a fine collection of bands for this free Wednesday night event in the 1920s styled brick-lined vaults of this Sydney underground nightclub.
And what is absolutely fantastic is that the newest Sydney swing dance school, All About Swing, headed by Siobhan and Matthew, dress up for Swinging at the Speakeasy and dance to live bands. Free!
Yep, Swinging At The Speakeasy is free. It’s very Wednesday. Bands play from 7-10pm and it’s at Palmer & Co, Abercrombie Lane off George Street near Circular Quay.
Authentic 1920s singer Greg Poppleton with his 1920s-30s duo to full 1920s orchestra is also available for all your entertainment needs. Request a quote now…
