2018 Great Art Deco Ball Photos


Greg Poppleton, 1920s singer and band, played the Great Art Deco Ball in the historic Carrington Hotel, Katoomba, Saturday 3 February.

It’s the sixth year in a row Greg Poppleton has played the Great Art Deco Ball . Each year the Ball gets bigger and brighter.
And it sells out earlier each year, too, without online sales or advertising.
The 2018 Ball sold out in November 2017!
Many of our dancing friends from previous years were at the Great Art Deco Ball this year!

THE POPPLETON EFFECT  © Kerrie Foster, Illawarra Breakfast Poets.

“The jazz crowd, they all got excited.
Mr. Poppleton was back in town.
He brought with him first class musicians,
including his son who came down.

This lad of just fourteen was brilliant
and the spitting image of Dad.
The talent will stay in the family.
And I know you’ll agree that’s not bad.

The way that Greg moves round the audience
and picks out whoever he will,
and sings to them through his own megaphone;
you see the crowds get a thrill.

He sings songs from back in the twenties,
and he dresses in clothes from back then.
The consummate entertainer,
we could have him back time and again.

2017 Art Deco Ball – Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


Saturday 4th February, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters played to a full house of dancers dressed 1920s-style at the annual Great Art Deco Ball of the historic Carrington Hotel in Katoomba.

2017 was Greg Poppleton’s sixth year in a row at the premier event of the Blue Mountains 1920s Festival.
Tickets were sold out almost as soon as they went on sale (by telephone call to the hotel reception only) in mid-2016.

Every guest was dressed to the nines in their best 1920s finery. In fact, everyone absolutely dazzled.

The winners of the best dressed were positively outstanding.

The Charleston-off in the middle of the night gave the full dance floor a solid workout.

 

I took some photos of the band and a couple of shots of the dancing crowd from the bandstand. I hope you enjoy them…

Greg Poppleton is Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 1930s singer. In his Bakelite Broadcasters band are world-touring musicians Geoff Power on cornet doubling sousaphone (11 US tours) Grahame Conlon guitar doubling banjo (3 US tours) and Jim Elliot bass and alto saxophones plus clarinet (9 US tours).

We saw lots of old friends on the bandstand and made lots of new friends at the Great Art Deco Ball, too.

Many commented on the excellent acoustic sound of the band this year. That was all due to the magician of the sound desk, drummer, singer and Conservatorium of Music graduate, Tony Jex.

Tony is also the man to contact to have Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters at your 1920s – 1930s themed event. We play for weddings, parties and corporates, too.

Jenny’s 1920s Party – Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters


What a fun Roaring ’20s night it was playing for Jenny. She was celebrating with her family and friends in a big, warm 1920s Great Gatsby themed party in the small ballroom of the historic Carrington Hotel, Katoomba. And the Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters 4-piece provided the authentic 1920s music.

Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters is Sydney and the Blue Mountains number 1 Great Gatsby Band, with Australia’s only authentic 1920s – 30s singer, world-touring swing jazz musicians and over 700,000 YouTube views.

Of course I took some pictures of this 1920s-themed night for you.

The first snap, however, of the Carrington in snow the morning of the party comes from the Carrington Hotel’s own facebook page where Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters was mentioned as playing.

Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters is the regular Roaring 20s band for the Carrington’s popular annual Art Deco Ball.

Saturday 6 Feb 2016 is the highlight of the annual Blue Mountains 1920s Festival – The Carrington Hotel’s Great Art Deco Ball.

The Carrington Hotel has a long and rich history since her establishment by Sydney hotelier Harry Rowell more than one hundred and thirty years ago.

Opened in 1883 as The Great Western, this Grand Old Lady soon became a popular mountain retreat for international visitors, the elite of Sydney, and those eager to see the natural wonders of the Blue Mountains.

Renamed ‘The Carrington’ in 1886, in honour of the then Governor of New South Wales, Lord Carrington, the hotel was extended by its new owner, Mr F C Goyder who is credited with the creation of The Grand Dining Room.  With its extended and upgraded facilities, The Carrington gained even more acceptance as a world class establishment.
