On Friday, March 2 the Eden Café will be welcoming the David Goo Variety Band, supported by Moonlet and the Love-Monks for a night of fun and frolics.

Entertainers in the very broadest sense of the word, the David Goo Variety Band are on a mission to put the fun back into music. Their energetic live shows mix music with comedy and even a dash of magic.

David Goo started the band after travelling and partying around the world and trying his luck on the open-mic scene. There he met variety of exciting people who came together to create a soup of rock, ska, funk, classical, metal, hip-hop and dance along with a liberal helping of humor.

Influenced by Frank Zappa, System of a Down, Michael Jackson, Bill Bailey and The Smiths, their material covers a range of topics, including songs about Graveyard pinball and David’s pet maggot. The David Goo Variety Band is an act that needs to be seen to be believed. 

Moonlet and The Love-Monks are an alternative-folk quintet from West Cornwall. With their unique combination of quirky and memorable lyrics and playful folk-inspired music, they are an up-and-coming presence in the Cornish music scene.

Dan Ball, Eden Café Manager, said: “The David Goo Variety Band promise to provide an unforgettable performance like no other. Get here early to guarantee a space for this weird and wonderful act.”
