Thank you to all of you who came to listen, and dance toGreg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters, for Sunday Jazz in Cronulla RSL, Sunday 17 January. Good to see so many dancers. And flattering to have so many photos and so much film taken.

Greg Poppleton - authentic 1920s - 1930s vocals
Grahame Conlon - guitar and banjo

Alex Inman-Hislop - drums

I took some happy snaps for you which I've posted below. Thank you to everyone in the audience who called out 'Cheese' on the count of three when I took a selfie. You'll see it the very bottom of this post.

We look forward to playing swing and jazz from the 1920s and 1930s for you at Cronulla RSL again soon.

A snap of the band I took during the band instrumental, Indiana. I stepped in for a chorus of altered lyrics I made up on the spot, "Back home again in Cronunula / And I think that I can see / A flickering neon light / Still burning bright / Through the eucalypts for me / The new raked beach sends all its fragrance / 'Cross the dunes I used to roam / When I dream about the moonlight over Kurnell / Then I long for my Cronunulla home!"
A snap of the band I took during an instrumental version of Indiana - though I did step in for a chorus of altered lyrics which I made up on the spot especially for the occasion, "Back home again in Cronunulla / And I think that I can see / A flickering neon light / Still shining bright / Through the eucalypts at me / The new raked beach / Sends all its fragrance / 'Cross the dunes I used to roam / When I dream about the moonlight over Kurnell / Then I long for my Cronunulla home!"

And now meet the members of the band individually...
