Greg Poppleton at Django Bar, Marrickville

Come down for a night of Swing Music and Dance as Greg Poppleton & Band transport you to a 1920's dancehall.

"Greg has captured the 1920s vocal style to perfection," Kevin Jones, former jazz critic for The Australian

"Captures the essence of the 1930s swing years with uncanny accuracy," (USA)

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

Greg Poppleton has loved 1920s jazz and 1930s swing since the age of 3 when he saw Louis Armstrong solo cornet on TV. Since then, Greg has spread the word about this golden age of dance music, when bands played live nightly on the radio and singers sang brilliantly constructed lyrics that were both personal and universal in their meaning.

Nancy Sinatra Lee Hazlewood Experience

at Camelot Lounge, Marrickville

The Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood Experience celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of You Only Live Twice with their return to the Camelot Lounge for the first time in 2017.

You Only Live Twice, renowned as the first Bond theme song to be released as a stand-alone single, set a new high point for the Bond movie franchise and movie theme tunes.

Now the band, fresh from a mini-tour of Melbourne, will be running riot through this classic as well as all the the solo and duet hits and occasional near-misses of Nancy and Lee – the pop music Beauty and the Beast pairing whose quirky success confounded the critics.

These Boots are Made for Walking, Jackson, Summer Wine, Sugar Town, Lightning’s Girl, Something Stupid, Bang Bang, the trippy Some Velvet Morning – the Nancy Sinatra Lee Hazlewood Experience play them all and are exactly what their name suggests – a glamorous, entertaining re-imagining of the Sixties through the eyes of the iconic and culty Nancy & Lee.

Fronted by renowned stage, film and television actor Zoe Carides as Nancy, Scott Holmes as Lee and even former red Wiggle Murray Cook on bass, the band have already carved out a steady following among the Sydney Inner West audience.

“The quintessential sound of the late 60’s……. but sporting the twenty-first century finesse of a group of seasoned musos” ; “sassy…sensual, haunting”

“Instead of Sydney’s inner west, we might as easily have been in Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Nashville or the Bardog Tavern Memphis.” 

Lloyd Bradford Syke – Australian Stage

Tami Neilson (NZ/CAN) at The Basement, Sydney

Canadian born but now proudly Auckland-based Country & Soul darling TAMI NEILSON is heading to Australia in August with critically acclaimed new album DON’T BE AFRAID.

Neilson’s star is soaring high, with electrifying recent performances at Womad NZ, Auckland City Limits,

Nashville Americana Fest, and NZ Music Awards, as well as supporting blues star Colin James on

his recent Canadian tour.

Starting her music career as a young girl, Neilson spent her youth touring Canada with relatives in

 The Neilson Family band, opening for an array of country royalty including the formidable Johnny Cash.

More recently blossoming in New Zealand as a formidable talent in her own right, Tami Neilson has just finished

a national tour with long-time collaborators Delaney Davidson and Marlon Williams.

Don't Be Afraid was released in Tami's adopted country, last year and debuted at the top of the charts,

and the song "The First Man" was shortlisted for the Silver Scroll, the most prestigious music award in

New Zealand which Tami won in 2015 for her song "Walk (Back To Your Arms)".

A 5 Star review of Don’t Be Afraid in the NZ Herald claimed “This world-class album is a major statement

 from an artist at the top of her lyrical and vocal game.”

The singers songwriter’s mix of rollicking country, blues and soul, offset by heartbreaking balladry,

is guaranteed to delight.

"With a soulful voice straight from the golden age of country and rockabilly music, Tami Neilson has

 been described as "A red-hot honky-tonker, somewhere between Patsy Cline and Wanda Jackson

with perhaps just a little bit of Peggy Lee sophistication.”
