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. Think vintage glamour, prohibition and speakeasies.
Greg Poppleton has been entertaining for over 25 years and winning the hearts and minds of swing lovers everywhere. He fell in love with the music at age 3 when he saw Louis Armstrong on TV and has been hooked ever since.

It would take an extremely jaded heart not to smile and tap your feet, much less dance around the room, to Greg Poppleton.

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.”
