The Margate event has raised about £20,000 which will be shared between the Vortex and the Margate Jazz Scene. The Vortex, which is a charity, puts on live music 7 days a week and with associated festivals this amounts to about 400 live performances every year.
The Margate Jazz festival is wholly reliant on fund raising. So the Jamie gig has ensured that both the future of the Vortex and the Margate Jazz festival is secure for the foreseeable future.
Wow a big thank you to Jamie and of course, Ian and Liane and all involved in making this show happen.
Thanks to Stephanie for the info
