Great Art Deco Ball!Greg Poppleton and band play their fifth Great Art Deco Ball in the historic Carrington Hotel, Katoomba. This is the highlight of the annual Blue Mountains 1920s Festival. Since Greg Poppleton has been the band at the ball, the event sells out earlier and earlier. Again this year, the $149 tickets (including 3 course meal) were sold out soon after they went on sale (by phoning hotel reception only.) Here are my two favourite photos from the 2016 and 2017 Balls. Photo credits, 'Mountain Life'...
Sunday 4 February, Builders' Club2:30-5:30. Free 61 Church St, Wollongong Age 18+ only. Greg Poppleton: 1920s-30s vocals Grahame Conlon: guitar and banjo Dave Clayton: double bass (Damon won't be playing sax because the venue is now 18+) What's it like? THE POPPLETON EFFECT © Kerrie Foster, Illawarra Breakfast Poets. "The jazz crowd, they all got excited. Mr. Poppleton was back in town. He brought with him first class musicians, including his son who came down. This lad of just fourteen was brilliant and the spitting image of Dad. The talent will stay in the family. And I know you’ll agree that’s not bad. The way that Greg moves round the audience and picks out whoever he will, and sings to them through his own megaphone; you see the crowds get a thrill. He sings songs from back in the twenties, and he dresses in clothes from back then. The consummate entertainer, we could have him back time and again.
