The band and I were hugely thrilled to be invited back to play the songs of the 1920s and 1930s for the Illawarra Jazz Club.
The Illawarra Jazz Club has jazz bands playing every Saturday 3-6pm at the Unanderra Hotel and always to a friendly and enthusiastic audience.
Even fluro-vested drinkers in the main bar got into the music, drifting into the bistro where the band was playing to have a little bop around, especially when the band played The Charleston.
In the Greg Poppleton band for the Saturday 11 January show were, from left-to-right in the photo below,
Damon Poppleton – alto sax
Adam Barnard – washboard
Richelle Booth – baritone sax & clarinet
Paul Baker – banjo
