1920s - 1930s Jazz Swing Background Chill Mix 1

by Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters



Since 2002, Greg Poppleton, authentic 1920s and 1930s singer, has revived the songs of the Roaring 20s, Great Depression and 1930s Swing Era with his band of world-toured classic jazz musicians.

Drawing on influences like Louis Armstrong, Al Bowlly, Annette Hanshaw, Cab Calloway and very early jazz Bing Crosby, Greg has gained a loyal following through his authentic 3 octave vocals, his always top-notch swinging 1920s-30s band and his charismatic and original high-energy performances.

Greg has released 4 albums and two mixes that have received over 1 Million YouTube plays worldwide.

He's appeared in Hollywood movies with Nicole Kidman, John Goodman and Adrien Brody.

He was auditioned twice for the band leader role in Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby.

‘They Didn’t Believe Me’ from Greg’s new album ‘Back In Your Own Backyard’ was picked for the soundtrack of a new German-Israeli movie co-production, The Cake Maker.

"Greg Poppleton's music always hits the spot - so authentic sounding!"
Women's Vintage Radio (USA)

“Poppleton captures the essence of the swing years with uncanny accuracy. 5 Stars”
John Gilbert, eJazzNews.com (USA)

“The band knows what to do in terms of style. For swing enthusiasts the trivia alone (in the 8-page CD booklet) is worth the sticker price, never mind all of the nice music.”
Donny Harvey, MuzikReviews.com (USA)

“Just TRY not to sway to the music. I dare you!”
Gerald H. Beulah, Jr. JazzReview.com (USA)
