Swing Dancers and Children Dancing


Greg Poppleton sang with his 1920s-1930s trio at the unusual music venue, Central Station, every day of the June Long Weekend for the Transport Heritage Expo.

The band drew a big semi-circle of onlookers at a location people normally rush through to catch their train.

At one point in the second set, I spied a group of six dressed in fine vintage fashion, hesitating outside the semi circle of onlookers.

When I called out to them that they might want to dance to the next song, Somebody Loves Me, it turned out they were swing dancers!

So I took some snaps as they took to the terrazzo to swirl and twirl to the band’s swinging authentic 1920s – 1930s swing.

After the gig, my agent, Tony Jex, from OzManagement, texted me this nice message from a person who was in the audience,

“Greg, thanks for the dedication of Avalon today. By the way, On The Sunny Side of the Street is my funeral song and always gets me teary. Thanks again,” Craig and Baby Steven.

In the Greg Poppleton band:
Greg Poppleton – Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 1930s singer
Geoff Power – sousaphone and trumpet
Grahame Conlon – guitar
Adam Barnard – washboard, snare, bells, blocks and choke cymbal.

And please visit Greg Poppleton’s website at www.gregpoppletonmusic.com with lots of band videos, photos and gig guide.

All About Swing Dance The Charleston


 

Siobhan Ford who runs All About Swing very generously has sent me some film of the Greg Poppleton Band  at a 1920s night called ‘Swinging at the Speakeasy’ curated by Pia Andersen.

Siobhan and Karina are dancing to The Charleston.

In the band with Greg Poppleton 1920s singer, you’ll see Paul Furniss clarinet, Paul Baker banjo and Greg Chilcott sousaphone.

Wednesday night, 26 April, Greg Poppleton and band returned to Palmer & Co to play at the Wednesday night ‘Swinging At The Speakeasy‘ curated by Pia Andersen.

One couple at the bar, enjoying Greg Poppleton and band, told me that our energetic, swinging, 1920s performance made them think they were back in New York City.

With Greg Poppleton in the band were Paul Furniss clarinet, Paul Baker banjo and Greg Chilcott sousaphone.

Pia has put together a fine collection of bands for this free Wednesday night event in the 1920s styled brick-lined vaults of this Sydney underground nightclub.

And what is absolutely fantastic is that the newest Sydney swing dance school, All About Swing, headed by Siobhan and Matthew, dress up for Swinging at the Speakeasy and dance to live bands. Free!

Yep, Swinging At The Speakeasy is free. It’s very Wednesday. Bands play from 7-10pm and it’s at Palmer & Co, Abercrombie Lane off George Street near Circular Quay.
