Community variety shows are such fun. The Greg Poppleton band got the joint jumping in the Lower Sydney Town Hall Ballroom today. A packed dance floor swung to the music of the 1920s and 1930s played by singer Greg Poppleton and his quartet of world-toured jazz musicians…
Greg Poppleton, 1920s-30s singer and jazz band, filled the dance floor
One of the acts I managed to get a photo of while they were rehearsing before the show was The Friendship Bridge Dance Group.
I also had my photo taken with the Friendship Bridge Dance Group as the Greg Poppleton band played, ‘This Time The Dream’s On Me’.
There was also Welcome to Country by Aunty Norma Ingram, Cultural Dance and song in a variety of Aboriginal Languages by Terry Olsen, Zumba Flash Mob, Community Theatre with Kelly on piano (who I hadn’t seen since last century), Thor the Magician, the St Mary’s Cathedral Boys Choir and a wonderful MC.
Sydney’s popular Lord Mayor, Clover Moore, welcomed the concert goers. She was mobbed as she went from table to table.
Greg Poppleton is Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 30s singer. Operatically trained, entertaining and energetic, Greg puts on a show full of verve and exceptional musicianship by the world-toured band.
We play for festivals, clubs, bars and all private occasions.
