Greg Poppleton Show Photos Builders Club, Wollongong

It was the second show on the band’s Easter Tour 2017, with a enthusiastic audience in The Basement at The Builders.

Greg often took a walk through the audience to sing to everyone personally, his booming 3-octave baritone filling the room without a microphone.

On stage: Greg Poppleton (1920s-30s vocals), Grahame Conlon (guitar and banjo) Dave Clayton (double bass) and Damon Poppleton (soprano sax).

We’ll be back at the The Builders Sunday 25 June and Sunday 22 October.

21st Birthday 1920s Party with Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters had the great pleasure of playing for a very special 21st birthday on Saturday.

I took some photos of the 1920s quartet for you, featuring the very best in Australian vintage jazz: Geoff Power trumpet and sousaphone, Ben Jones alto sax, tenor sax and clarinet, Grahame Conlon guitar and banjo and Greg Poppleton authentic 1920s – 30s singer.

Because the gathering was made up of very talented singers in jazz, musical theatre and opera, we were more than happy for a few vocal sit-ins.

The young lady whose birthday it was is herself sat in with the band (and her two closest friends) on Two Sleepy People. Another Sydney jazz identity joined us for a gobsmakingly smokey take on Makin’ Whoopee. We had the real deal in jazz sing Lullaby of Birdland. And a great voice in professional music theatre wowed the party with Minnie The Moocher. Lots of fun!

We love playing birthdays, weddings and corporate events because we always play for the very best people who always have an enjoyable time. Contact Tony Jex about having Greg Poppleton at your occasion.
