The renowned Waiheke International Jazz Festival is on this weekend. The sun is set to shine and the island is set to sizzle. Yeah! Come and enjoy spectacular food and wine while you are at it.
The line-up is, as always, inspiring. The Festival kicks off on Friday at Rangihoua Estate. I’ll be stationed there selling my wares. Come up and have a taste, and a chat, and enjoy music by Sal Valentine & The Babyshakes, Lawrence Arabia, Sex On Toast and Tahuna Breaks. 12.00-6.00pm Tickets $49.00
