Hi, I’m Greg Poppleton. When I was 3, I saw Louis Armstrong on TV and have been hooked on 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing ever since – so my singing is totally true to the era. I’m Australia’s only authentic 1920s-30s singer with band. We play clubs, restaurants, balls, hotels and festivals. And we love playing private functions, too – your wedding, birthday, house party and corporate event.

I bring the era to life so your event will be a dazzling Hollywood experience. Think vintage glamour, prohibition and speakeasies. I appear in the movies Moulin Rouge! and Chronicles of Narnia Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Tin Pan Alley Vol.2

Greg Poppleton’s latest album of 1920s- 30s hits sung in English, German and Spanish – all delivered in an Australian accent. Perfect for dancing, lounging and, I’m told, shenanigans.

Quotes

Greg’s pleasing, vintage voice... impressive portamento slides on "The Charleston"... refreshes well-worn standards again and again on “Five Foot Two Eyes of Blue” and “I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate.”
