2 New Singles – SAN ANTONIO ROSE and AMAPOLA – Music Videos
GREG POPPLETON ANNOUNCES SAN ANTONIO ROSE AND AMAPOLA AS THE TWO SINGLES FROM NEW ALBUM TIN PAN ALLEY VOL. 2 – watch the San Antonio Rose and Amapola music videos…
San Antonio Rose is my Australian accented homage to Bob Wills’ signature song. The band is banjo, washboard with cymbal and woodblocks, and muted trumpet. San Antonio Rose was written in 1938, with lyrics added in 1940 and published by Tin Pan Alley’s Irving Berlin Music.
Amapola is a fabulous slow latin dance classic written 100 years ago this year. It’s my Australian accented homage to the Lecuona Cuban Boys. I sing the 1st chorus in my Aussie accented Spanish, the 2nd chorus in Australian English. There’s a dance couple who always request this song when we play live. It’s a joy to watch them rhumba. The song is Australian 1920s Latin Jazz at a son tempo, perfect for dancing, lounging and shenanigans.
Greg Poppleton is a 1920s – 1930s-style singer and band leader whose vocals have been called “uncannily authentic” by critics. When he was 3, he saw Louis Armstrong on TV and fell in love with the music. He was hooked on 1920s – 1930s jazz and swing from then on. Now he plays clubs, restaurants, balls, hotels and festivals. Tin Pan Alley Vol. 2 is his 8th album. Band website.
