Greg Poppleton Band 1920s Murder Mystery Fun Party


Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters had a great time playing for Janet’s birthday last Saturday alongside Murder Mystery Fun– hosted whodunnit entertainment.

Held in a beautiful club house right on the very south-west edge of Sydney, overlooking rolling farmland, Janet had a Murder Mystery Fun birthday to entertain her 60 guests, with dance music and fanfares for the prize-winners by Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters

Janet wrote, “I want to say how much everyone enjoyed your music. Everyone there was raving about you all. You have a fabulous voice and your musicians extremely talented. It it obvious too, that you enjoy singing and playing, and it must be wonderful to be able to have work that is also a lot of fun.
Thank you for helping to make my birthday such a great success, Greg. You and your Bakelite Broadcasters are really super.”

Thank you, Janet!
