1920s-30s Jazz at the Builders Club, Wollongong 25 June


I returned with my band, Greg Poppleton, to The Basement in the Master Builders’ Club, Wollongong, for a cosy afternoon of 1920s – 1930s swing and a few laughs.

It was good to see so many old friends of the band in the audience and nice to make some new acquaintances, too.

And it was also very nice to be invited by the Illawarra Jazz Club to play at one of their Corrimal Hotel jazz afternoons later in the year. I’ll keep you posted for time and date.
