Kevin Jones, 102.5FM Fine Music Sydney. Jazz Critic, The Australian

Warren Fahey, music historian and record producer wrote, “Greg Poppleton sang all the top songs of the 1920s. There were many happy faces in the audience. Greg's interpretations, dancing, swaying, staring and facial gymnastics made the music all the more interesting and amusing.”

Wedding Testimonial:
“Out of 3 bands we had, you were without doubt the highlight for us. We had so many comments from guests on how good you were. You really created the atmosphere we wanted. We've nearly worn your CD out. It's been played plenty of times this past month. Thanks, and next time something comes up we'll be sure to keep you in mind.“ Kane & Nicole. Re-booked for the 2013 OZWAC Charity Gala.

Corporate Testimonial:
“A very big thank you once again for your absolute stellar performance at last Wednesday's Great Gatsby event. Everyone has not stopped telling me how wonderful the Broadcasters were and I have to completely agree - what a perfect fit for the theme!
It was such a wonderful night made so much more pleasurable dealing with you and your band. Greg, you are an utmost gentleman and professional down to the tee. Your flexibility and dedication to what you do (and do very well) is a testament to you and made by job that little bit easier!”
Angela Freeman Event Manager, cievents

Birthday Party Testimonial:
"Greg Poppleton and his Bakelite Broadcasters were recently recommended by a friend so we had them play at my mum’s birthday celebration. They were really fabulous and helped make the night a great success. We thought that the era and style of the music would appeal to the older people but in actual fact, everyone enjoyed it immensely.
Greg was so friendly, entertaining and accommodating, singing requests and really personalising the evening. So many people have called to thank us for the best night they’ve had in years."
Leonie, Winmalee
