Australia’s only authentic 1920s-30s singer is joined with his band and two great Queensland musicians for an exciting dinner and dance, jazz and swing show at Caloundra Power Boat Club on August 19 and 20.
Presented by the Sunshine Coast Jazz Club, there are two shows to see Greg Poppleton who has been voted best 1920’s entertainer in Australia - the Saturday Dinner Show, 6pm - 9.30pm, and Sunday 1pm - 3.30pm.
Greg Poppleton caught the jazz bug at the age of three after seeing Louis Armstrong on TV. To his parent's despair he never had any interest in contemporary popular music and is totally uninfluenced by it. He has his own style, unschooled and uncompromised by the jazz academy.
Greg has over 20 years of live jazz performance, and according to US and Australian critics, he captures the essence of the Swing Era with “uncanny accuracy"and brings the era to life with a dazzling Hollywood experience.
The band consists of Greg Poppleton (1920s-1930s Vocals), Geoff Power (Trumpet), Damon Poppleton (Alto Sax), Tony Barnard (Guitar), Adam Barnard (Washboard and Snare), Will Sargisson (Keyboard) and Richard Stevens (Sousaphone).
