Foundry 616 Photos – Greg Poppleton 1920s – 1930s Show


Jazz club Foundry 616 witnessed the most high-energy show of its lifetime when Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters brought their songs of the 1920s and 1930s to the Foundry stage.

One visiting Londoner told us the night reminded of her of many nights she had spent at the iconic Ronnie Scott’s jazz club. High energy and intimate were the words she used to describe the show.

Many Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters regulars and plenty of new friends were in the audience making the night one of the club’s busiest Thursday nights on record.

The band’s stock of Back In Your Own Backyard albums (available at Bandcamp) sold out.

Thank you to Jennifer Power, sound man Jonathan, and drummer Adam Barnard for the photos below. I also took a few. Enjoy…

The Bakelite Broadcasters just about to go on stage. L-r Adam Barnard drums and washboard, Grahame Conlon guitar and banjo, Geoff Power sousaphone, cornet and trombone, Paul Furniss clarinet and alto sax.
