Wow! July’s Gin Mill Social was SOLD OUT weeks ahead.
What a fun 1920s night it was in the beautiful Art Deco Cello Restaurant of the Castlereagh Boutique Hotel.
The Greg Poppleton 1920s trio, Greg Poppleton (authentic 1920s vocals and megaphone) Geoff Power (sousaphone and cornet) and Paul Baker (banjo) serenaded guests in real Jazz Age style for the first 75 minutes.
We add authentic 1920s-30s style and glamour to weddings, parties and corporate events - TAKE ACTION.
Now, back to July’s Gin Mill Social…
Missy stunned with her globe poses and fan dance.
Mr Gorski amazed with his fine balancing and juggling.
The four course dinner was spectacular, as were the cocktails.
MC Lou P Lou charmed the crowd.
Of course, being Prohibition, there was a raid!
In this blog I'll be telling you about some past events I've detailed over the years in the stand alone blog, Greg Poppleton's Radio Lounge Blog.
I used the name Radio Lounge because apart from photos of gigs, it lists the weekly play list for my 107.3 2SER Sydney radio show, The Phantom Dancer, your non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-60s radio and TV. You can hear the latest four shows here at 2ser.com.
For this post, I thought you might like to see a few photos of the band and I at the Waiheke International Jazz Festival. It was lots of fun singing the songs of the 1920s and 1930s to enthusiastic audiences with Greg Chilcott (sousaphone and trombone) and Arthur Washington (guitar).
Over the coming months, we look forward to sharing more music with you in Mosman, the Gin Mill Social, Corrimal, Wollongong, Penrith and next year's Great Art Deco Ball has just been confirmed. Please stay in touch via my mailing list, or follow me on Facebook.
Look forward to seeing you soon! Hope you enjoy these photos from Waiheke.
