Greg is totally untouched by contemporary music. His voice is true-to-the-era.
“Greg Poppleton captures the essence of the era with uncanny accuracy.” - Kevin Jones, jazz critic Fine Music 102.5
Greg’s voice is operatically trained. He sells a song. He’ll make you laugh. Even those who don’t like jazz like Greg Poppleton.
“That’s because we play real jazz. We improvise, we have fun, we’re acoustic, we’re alive, we’re always in the moment,” says Greg.
“Your great voice, your ability to “sell a song” and your energy came across as completely American while sounding Australian! And that trio is an absolute knockout.” - Lance Belville, Writer / Theatre Director, San Francisco.
Since 2002, Greg Poppleton has revived the songs of the Roaring 20s and 1930s Swing Era.
In Greg’s swinging trio: Grahame Conlon (guitar/banjo) Dave Clayton (double bass) and Adam Barnard (snare, bells, washboard).
On the song list: The Charleston, My Blue Heaven, Singing in the Bathtub, Falling in Love Again, My Canary Has Circles Under His Eyes and Road to Gundagai.
Check out the hot new video for you on the new website – ‘All About Swing’ dancing to Greg Poppleton playing The Charleston at Palmer & Co.
We’re back at Palmer & Co this Saturday night, 27 May, 8-Midnight. FREE.
If you’re in the city, drop by.
Palmer & Co is on Abercrombie Lane, downstairs, off George St and a five minute stroll from Wynyard Station.
This is what it looks like when we play there…
We’re playing the wedding reception of one of our good, long-time Facebook friends and fan of the band tonight.
And we’re sure looking forward to it.
The theme is Jazz Club – and we’ve played at plenty of those – Foundry616, Blue Note, Vanguard, Basement, Gin Mill Social, and jazz festivals.
I’ve assembled, as always, the best aggregation of classic 1920s jazz and 1930s swing musicians there is to be had in Sydney:
Paul Furniss – clarinet and alto sax
Geoff Power – cornet and sousaphone
Grahame Conlon – guitar and banjo
Lawrie Thompson – drums and washboard
Greg Poppleton – authentic 1920s – 1930s vocals
As you know, we play for all types of events, especially those with a 1920s / 1930s theme.
