“Hi Greg. I “met” you (not in person) during your Friday evening performance at the Waiheke Jazz Festival. I live my life on purpose and in the moment, rarely missing a calling / opportunity. However, during your performance I totally froze when you made eye contact, and I could not bring myself to talk to you afterwards. I regret not telling you that your music has moved and inspired me. Thank you for giving of yourself so generously! With best wishes for your future,”

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.

John Quigley

Director Waiheke International Jazz Festival



I couldn’t be happier with my decision to entrust my exclusive Gatsby: A Roaring Soiree to Greg Poppleton. The music, the atmosphere, and the professionalism were all exceptional. Everything was perfect and thoughtfully managed.
