Jazzy day proves popular

Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page -

What bet­ter way to spend a Sun­day af­ter­noon than lis­ten to top qual­ity jazz mu­sic and raise money for Pohlen Hos­pi­tal at the same time.

That’s what Jaz­za­mataz or­gan­iser Leo Kingston had to say, with a big smile on his face, as he looked over Long­lands Farm and Restau­rant packed full of happy peo­ple.

More than $2500 was raised for the lo­cally funded hos­pi­tal over the week­end thanks to the sold out event. A to­tal of 130 tick­ets were sold.

Kingston said the day was amaz­ing and he was blown away by the support ev­ery­one had showed.

‘‘Ev­ery­one’s happy, chill­ing out and en­joy­ing the mu­sic. What bet­ter way to spend a Sun­day af­ter­noon?’’.

Due to its suc­cess, Jaz­za­mataz will turn into a reg­u­lar oc­cur­rence.
