Greg Poppleton ‘Swinging At The Speakeasy’ in Palmer & Co.


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.

Authentic 1920s singer Greg Poppleton with his 1920s-30s duo to full 1920s orchestra is also available for all your entertainment needs. Request a quote now…

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
