Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters play small group 1920s hot jazz and 1930s swing. Their new CD, 'Doin' The Charleston' is one of those rare jazz albums picked up by commercial radio. It was Bob Rogers' 2CH 9 O'Clock Special on Saturday 24 November. No other contemporary Australian jazz album has received so much commercial radio airplay

The Lounge Bar Lotharios is Sydney's 1920s Great Gatsby Dance Orchestra. The 11-piece Roaring 20s Dance Orchestra play original 1920s arrangements of 1920s songs. It is lead by band singer Greg Poppleton with musical direction by ARIA-nominated trumpeter, Geoff Power

“Greg has captured the 1920s vocal style to perfection,” Kevin Jones, 102.5FM Fine Music Sydney, former jazz critic for The Australian.
