Authentic 1920s - 1930s
“Last year at the Melbourne Jazz Festival and the Thredbo Jazz Festival I saw some great acts. I made Greg Poppleton an offer to play at the Waiheke International Jazz Festival ON THE SPOT.”
"It would take an extremely jaded heart not to smile and tap your feet, much less dance around the room, to Greg Poppleton."
- Budd Kopman, All About Jazz (U.S.A)

The Poppleton Effect
"The way that Greg moves round the audience
and picks out whoever he will,
and sings to them through his own megaphone;
you see the crowds get a thrill.
He sings songs from back in the twenties,
and he dresses in clothes from back then.
The consummate entertainer,
we could have him back time and again."
