With Greg Poppleton
CANCELLED due to Covid. All Jazz at the Pine shows now cancelled for 2020. We look forward to playing 1920s-30s songs for you at JatP in 2021!More
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.
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.”
