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. Now the Greg Poppleton 1920s jazz band and 1930s swing band 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. 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.

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.”
