"Greg Poppleton's music always hits the spot - so authentic sounding!"
— Women's Vintage Radio (USA)
“Poppleton captures the essence of the swing years with uncanny accuracy. 5 Stars”
— John Gilbert, eJazzNews.com (USA)
“The band knows what to do in terms of style. For swing enthusiasts the trivia alone (in the 8-page CD booklet) is worth the sticker price, never mind all of the nice music.”
— Donny Harvey, MuzikReviews.com (USA)
“Just TRY not to sway to the music. I dare you!”
— Gerald H. Beulah, Jr. JazzReview.com (USA)
“Greg Poppleton sang all the top songs of the 1920s. There were many happy faces in the audience. Greg’s interpretations, dancing, swaying, staring and facial gymnastics made the music all the more interesting and amusing.”
— Warren Fahey AM, music historian, record producer (Festival)
“Thank you for the most amazing gig and for asking me to sing with you...what an honour. You had the audience eating out of the palm of your hand. They loved you and Cazzbo on sousaphone hit the spot as well. We will definitely get you back some time.”
— Shelley Rae King, President Illawarra Jazz Club
“Awesome. Totally fun.”
— Jesse Miner - ‘Hey, Mr Jesse’ Swing Podcast (USA)

— Gerard H Beulah Jr, JazzReview.com (USA)
“Greg Poppleton was considered a little eccentric growing up in the mid-‘70s. As his mates brought the Sex Pistols’ album or sung along to Queen on the radio, he was rifling through the back shelves of music stores looking for recordings from the 1930s Swing Era.”
