ON FRIDAY and Saturday of next week Aitutaki is set to celebrate a 10th birthday like no other at the Boat Shed Bar and Grill owned by Maria and Allen Mills.

 

Serving up what are claimed to be some of the best meals in Aitutaki, the iconic bar is set to celebrate 10 years of great business.

Much loved by locals and travellers, the bar will be the only place to be in Aitutaki over that weekend.

Raro-based trio the Rocking Jandals, featuring Ian Wheeldon on vocals, guitar star Anania Browne and drum guru MO Newport will be amping up a show that will have everyone ready to dance and sing the night away.

 “We are really excited to be taking our music to Aitutaki and what a brilliant occasion to do it,” says lead singer Ian Wheeldon, also known as DJ Wheelie of the infamous Rarotonga Vinyl Revival Club.

The Boat Shed is the Trader Jacks of Aitutaki and the restaurant has gathered plenty of great reviews on Trip Advisor, says Wheeldon.

“This place is much-loved and we are really pleased to be part of the celebrations.”

The Rocking Jandals will perform on both days from 7pm and will present a show that celebrates great rocking tunes to match their Rocking Jandals name.

If you are over on Aitutaki next weekend, make sure you don’t miss out.
