The Greg Poppleton quartet returns to Penrith RSL, 8 Tindale St, Penrith.
There’s a dance floor and bistro plus drinks are at club prices. Child friendly.
Just 10 minutes walk from Penrith train station and bus interchange, Penrith RSL also has free parking.
The band and I always look forward to playing in the city by the Nepean.
With me in the band as I sing the songs of the 1920s and 1930s, will be double bassist, Dave Clayton. We duet on ‘Yes We Have No Bananas’.
Guitarist for Ricky May, Grahame Conlon, swings on Spanish guitar and banjo.
Damon Poppleton, winner of the 2019 James Morrison Generations in Jazz Instrumental Scholarship will be on alto sax.
