Saturday night and Greg Poppleton was singing the songs of the 1920s and 1930s with his band at Simon and Aleis' beautiful at Bush Bank. Bush Bank is an old dairy farm on the coast just south of Kiama, two hours drive (or train + walk) from Sydney. Having a live 1920s - 1930s jazz and swing band can make a fantastic difference to your wedding. Having Australia's only authentic 1920s - 30s singer and band gives you the biggest emotional impact. I took some photos to show you. In the meantime, find out about having Greg Poppleton at your wedding...

FILM OF THE LOCAL AREA Set to music from Greg's latest 1920s-30s album Back In Your Own Backyard. In the band video below, I filmed the crashing waves about a year ago just where you see the white breakers in the picture above. Enjoy the 1914 hit, 'They Didn't Believe Me' by the Greg Poppleton 1920s vocal, guitar and clarinet trio in a contemplative mode. The song is from the band's album Back In Your Own Backyard, available from Bandcamp, CDBaby and iTunes.
And here's the band playing 'Yes, We Have No Bananas', also from the album 'Back In Your Own Backyard'. And the film was also taken just over a year ago and just at the back of Bush Bank along the Kiama - Gerringong bush walk. Enjoy!
