When I was 3, I saw Louis Armstrong on TV and fell in love with the music. I was hooked on 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing from then on. Now I play clubs, restaurants, balls, hotels and festivals. And I 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. I’ve even worked as an actor with Hollywood stars John Goodman, Adrien Brody and Nicole Kidman. Think vintage glamour, prohibition and speakeasies.
Tin Pan Alley Vol.1 is a collection of classic songs from the 1902s Jazz Age and 1930s Swing Era sung by Greg Poppleton. 20s 30s Tin Pan Alley Vol.1 is available as a digital download and as a limited edition collector’s CD. Only 50 copies printed. Greg Poppleton has been entertaining for over 25 years. Critics write that Greg’s vocals capture the essence of the 1920s and 1930s with uncanny accuracy. That’s because he’s fell in love with the music at age 3 and has been absorbing the vocal style since childhood. Greg will be releasing two more volumes of his favourite 20s-30s tunes in 2020 and 2021. Look out for them!

Poppleton’s vocals capture the essence of the swing years with uncanny accuracy.
It would take an extremely jaded heart not to smile and tap your feet, much less dance around the room, to Greg Poppleton.

Last year at the Melbourne Jazz Festival and the Thredbo Jazz Festival I saw some great acts. I made Greg Poppleton an offer on the spot.

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.”
