IMPRESSED

Greg Poppleton brought along his quartet of world-toured jazz musicians. Their authentic, swinging style certainly impressed - and won over a lot of people who had never heard 1920s jazz before.

The smiles, the spontaneous  little dances here and there, all those who stopped to intently listen, and the nice people who came up to compliment the band after each set, told me that the band was fulfilling its brief.

THE BRIEF


To provide atmosphere as friends and colleagues met in the courtyard to socialise, network and do business.

SOUND


So the music was low, yet energetic. People could talk easily and come and go as they please. The owner of the bar and restaurant next to the courtyard thanking us as both he and we packed up said it all.

The band was largely acoustic with two 100W speakers for the vocals and banjo, mixed wirelessly via ipad. Guitar and double bass used a small amp each and the clarinet and alto sax did not need to be mic'd at all to be heard clearly.
