Greg is totally untouched by contemporary music. His voice is absolutely true-to-the-era. “Greg Poppleton captures the essence of the era with uncanny accuracy.” Kevin Jones, jazz critic Fine Music 102.5 What’s more, Greg’s voice is operatically trained. He sells a song. He’s fun. He’ll make you laugh. Even those who don’t like jazz like Greg Poppleton. “Your great voice, your ability to “sell a song” and your particular energy came across as completely American while sounding Australian! And that trio is an absolute knockout.” – Lance Belville, Writer / Theatre Director, San Francisco. Since 2002, Greg Poppleton has revived the songs of the Roaring 20s and 1930s Swing Era. He’s played at the Waiheke International Jazz Festival NZ, Thredbo Jazz, Illawarra Jazz Fest and Sydney Festival. He’s resident at the often sold out Gin Mill Social and always sold out Blue Mountains 1920s Festival Great Art Deco Ball. In Greg’s swinging trio you’ll hear Grahame Conlon (guitar doubling banjo) Dave Clayton (double bass) and Adam Barnard (snare, bells and washboard). On the song list will be The Charleston, My Blue Heaven, Singing in the Bathtub, Falling in Love Again, My Canary Has Circles Under His Eyes and Road to Gundagai.
