Greg Poppleton

We’re back at The Basement Builders’ Club Wollongong for an afternoon of swinging 1920s and 1930s jazz.

Great club. Relaxed, easy atmosphere. The Basement is pokie free. And there’s no cover charge!

Show: 2:30 – 5:30pm

We’re looking forward to seeing all our Wollongong friends again at The Basement for an afternoon of 1920s – 1930s music and fun.

The Basement is a venue we enjoyed playing at regularly until renovations and then the COVID hiatus.

In fact, the photo with this post comes from November 2018! It’s been too long.

In the band:
Greg Poppleton – 1920s – 30s vocals
Damon Poppleton – alto sax (he won the 2019 James Morrison Generations in Jazz instrumental scholarship since you last saw him.)
Bradley Newman – keyboard
Dave Clayton – double bass

We’re looking forward to playing for you at The Basement (61 Church Street Wollongong)!

What started out as a quaint idea for a cocktail bar, flourished into a gin and cocktail bar with an impressive selection of over 365 gins including 315 Australian gins, making The Botanist the largest gin bar in NSW.

With an extensive cocktail list of your favourites and some of our own creation, The Botanist bar is the perfect place to catch up with some friends over drinks, or have a cheeky cocktail before your meal.

The Botanist name is a nod to Sir Joseph Banks an English naturalist, botanist and patron of the natural sciences. He took part in Captain Cook’s first great voyage which included a trip to Australia. Banks is credited with introducing the eucalyptus, acacia and the genus named after him, Banksia, to the Western world. Around 80 species of plants bear his name.

So here’s to you Joseph ……

12noon – 10pm
