I’ll be swinging at the hip Django Bar with my band, Sunday 16 July and I’d love to see you there.
It’ll be a cheeky, barnstorming, high energy show featuring a sunny collection of upbeat songs from the Prohibition and Swing Era.
It’s called Swing Night with Greg Poppleton at the Django Bar.
And I’ll be joined by the All About Swing dancers. All dancers welcome! TICKETS
$17 pre, $20 door | 6pm doors, 8pm show
Delicious food (including pizza!) available.
Fully licensed – NO BYO
Limited table bookings for groups of 8 or more only are available – email us for table reservations AFTER you have prebooked.

Here I am improvising on Margie to two of the All About Swing dancers at a gig in April…
And here’s the band and I with Siobhan and Katrina Jane from the All About Swing crew…
In my swinging trio for the Django Bar, Sunday 16 July, will be: ARIA nominee Geoff Power on sousaphone and trumpet, Ricky May alumnus Grahame Conlon grooving guitar and banjo, and high school alto sax up-and-comer Damon Poppleton. Damon has already performed on stage with Anna Vriend (Canada) and Denis di Blasio (USA).
Damon is way underage, so under 18s are welcome accompanied by a responsible adult.
On the song list will be The Charleston, My Blue Heaven, The Way You Look Tonight, Falling in Love Again and On The Road to Gundagai.
Come along have dinner, have a dance and have fun! See you Sunday 16 July at Swing Night with Greg Poppleton @ Django Bar.
Doors open 6pm. Show 8pm. Finishes 10pm.
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.
If you, or someone you know, is looking for real 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing for their wedding, corporate function or party, please contact the ever helpful Tony Jex to see what we can do for you and to get your obligation-free quotation.

Sydney Rowers Club, 613 Great North Road, Abbotsford, overlooks the Parramatta River at Hen & Chicken Bay. Founded in 1870, the club established its Abbotsford branch in 1874 at what was the ‘Red Cow Inn’.
From the club website history page, the location was,
“beautifully situated at a bold point of the river only seven miles from Sydney. There were already adequate facilities for members to remain whilst training and stop for the night if required. There was also plenty to do if tired of rowing; including fishing and shooting in the adjacent bush.”
Sadly, the “adjacent bush” was chopped down for housing after WW1 (my grandmother remembered the ironbark forest. She moved into the area in 1917 with my baby father).
