June Newsletter – Greg Poppleton


Heigh-Ho Everybody,

… as Rudy Vallee used to say on his 1930s radio show –

WE’VE BEEN TO THE REGISTRY OFFICE
and we’ve changed the band name and web address

Yes, we’ve taken the plunge.

Due to many requests, the band name Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters has been changed and shortened.

Now it’s a name we’re sure you’ll find easier to say, easier to write and easier to remember – Greg Poppleton.

The band website name has changed, too. It was bakelitejazz.com. Now it’s gregpoppletonmusic.com.

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.

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.

All About Swing is a swing dance school. So if you’ve ever wanted to dance the way Siobhan and Katrina are in this clip, get in touch with them…

And when you need authentic 1920s and 1930s jazz swing style at your event, request a quote about Greg Poppleton. 1920s-30s duo to full 1920s orchestra is also available now…

Egyptian Ella – New Greg Poppleton Video


Huzzah!

The new video by Greg Poppleton …

Egyptian Ella by Walter Doyle (1930) – from the album Back In Your Own Backyard

Greg Poppleton and his 1920s-30s swing and jazz band come from Way Down South –
so far south, in fact, that the next stop is Antarctica!

Enjoy…

We love playing 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing

And we believe in sharing this music at free shows and uploads

But we still have to eat

We believe that for artists to survive and create, audiences need to step up and directly support them…

If you’re broke,
add this to your play list.
Kick in later when you have the money

If you’re rich,
think of the good karma your support will bring you

We ask for only $1

That’s 1/3 the price of a coffee

And this song will last you forever

Thank you.

Harbour Cruise Wedding with 1920s Jazz and Dance


Greg Poppleton, authentic 1920s-30s singer and his trio, had the great honour of playing for Stephanie and Jared, their family and friends, on their wonderful wedding harbour cruise.

I took some photos of the band and the harbour that day (while protecting Stephanie and Jated’s privacy). Enjoy…

17 February Gin Mill Social Photos with Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters, 1920s singer and band, opened another Gin Mill Social 1920s party at Slide Cabaret 17 February.

It’s the 1920s at the Gin Mill Social! Inside an old closed down bank lies the hottest spot on Oxford Street, Number 41.

It’s prohibition time, an era of secrecy and excess and you have the secret password. Hang out the front of the old bank when you arrive, but look busy, we don’t want those cops spotting you.

The party begins at 7pm sharp. – Food is served banquet style, arriving on platters made for sharing. Eat as much or as little as you like.

The dress code is simple – Girls in pearls. Guys in ties.

The Gin Mill Social is perfect for a birthday, anniversary dinner, meet with the in-laws, hang with the outlaws, or simply to reconnect with old friends. Candles are lit. Lights are low. Conversations are loud. It’s a lively atmosphere.

Join us… Feast, dance and play! Next show Friday 24 March. TICKETS
