Hi, I’m Greg Poppleton, Australia’s #1 authentic 1920s-30s singer with 8 albums and 1.3 million total YouTube views.
When I was 3, I saw Louis Armstrong on TV. I’ve been hooked on 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing ever since.
I bring the era to life so your event will be a dazzling Hollywood experience. Think vintage glamour, prohibition and speakeasies.
Now also think MAGIC with the new Sorcery and Swing Speakeasy dinner show!
You’ve seen me in sold out shows for the Sydney Festival (twice), Waiheke International Jazz Festival (NZ) and the annual Great Art Deco Ball.
Each week I bring you the award-winning Phantom Dancer show on 30 radio stations and online.
Sorcery and Swing! It’s the perfect 1920s Music and Magic accompaniment for your dinner event
Vaudeville brought back to life as you dine in style.
Make your dinner event a magical 1920s Speakeasy! Enjoy the 1 minute show clip here…
◆ THE SORCERY… The engaging magic of The Gentleman Magician
◆ THE SWING… The superb 1920s-1930s music of Greg Poppleton
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 Sydney Jazz Band.

Last year at the Melbourne Jazz Festival and the Thredbo Jazz Festival I saw some great acts. I made Greg Poppleton Sydney Jazz Band 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.”
