Celtic Cargo Cult regulars at Zo

David Somers and Celtic Cargo Cult are monthly regulars at Zocalo Café.

David Somers and Celtic Cargo Cult are monthly regulars at Zocalo Café.

Members of their “cult following” will want to know that they have switched to the third Saturday of each month, starting April 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

A bigger change for the band is that they welcome back Chris Manuel on lead guitar as a regular band member, rather than an occasional special guest. Chris and David have played music together for over ten years, but his recent exile to “Alberia” meant sporadic appearances with the band.

Celtic Cargo Cult consists of David Somers (guitar/vocals), David Hext and Bob Henderson.

On the corner of Cliffe Avenue and Fifth Street in Courtenay, Zocalo provides an ideal intimate setting in which to enjoy the band’s original music and unique arrangements of traditional and contemporary Irish songs.

In addition to its mouth-watering desserts and coffees, it also has a licensed dining menu with beer, wine and liqueurs. Come and enjoy an Irish pub atmosphere in a family-friendly environment.
