Hi, I’m Greg Poppleton, Australia’s only authentic 1920s-30s singer with band/orchestra – 1.3 million total YouTube views. 8 albums.
When I was 3 I saw Louis Armstrong on TV. Hooked on 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing ever since.
I bring the era to life. Guaranteed vintage wow. Real 1920s-30s singing style plus band or orchestra.
Your event will be a dazzling Hollywood experience. Think vintage glamour, prohibition and speakeasies.
Sold out shows for the Sydney Festival (twice), Waiheke International Jazz Festival (NZ), annual Great Art Deco Ball and more.
On radio I bring you the award-winning Phantom Dancer live swing jazz show heard on 20 stations and online.
In movies you may have seen me with Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge! and with Adrien Brody and John Goodman. On TV, in Barons (ABC), The Last Days of the Space Age (Disney +), Year Of (Stan) and many more.
We’d also love to play for your wedding, birthday, house party and corporate event.
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 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.”
