Caseto busking on Dun Laoghaire harbour

Three young lads have been praised for their musical talents as they were spotted ‘singing up a storm’ in Dun Laoghaire over the Christmas.

Cousins Cathal(11), Sean(16) and Tom(19) Mulvey formed the band Caseto five years ago, and created the name of the group from the first initials of their names combined.

The talented band told Dublin Gazette that they come from a music family and have always been interested in music.

“We come from a very musical family and play music together as often as we can.

“We each play multiple instruments; lead, bass, rhythm guitars, drums, piano and everybody in the band sings.

“We write our own songs too. We play all sorts of music and our influences are U2, Ed Sheeran, Queen, Michael Jackson,
Green Day, Bon Jovi, Toto, George Ezra [and] Bruno Mars.”

The lads also like to give back with their talents with fundraising events where they can.

In October, Caseto played in Bray as part of the ‘Shop for Change’ fundraising campaign to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society.

They said: “BT Ireland raised €186,269 for the Irish Cancer Society, and we played a small part in this fundraising, by performing outside one of the cancer care Shops in Bray.

“We had a great day entertaining the people of Bray and the fact that we helped raise some money for this great charity, was a bonus.”

The cousins’ band has been gaining traction as they busk across Dublin and play gigs, picking up new supporters along the way.

People have been praising their musical abilities and “excellent covers” online.

One wrote: “Absolutely Class boys!! 10 out of 10 for sound and video! Looking forward to the next one already.”

While another wrote: “Excellent cover. Very tight and great vocals. Well done. I feel so untalented when I watch these lads.”

One passerby on Dun Laoghaire East Pier wrote: “Great to hear music on the pier today. I enjoyed it.”

Caseto’s dream is to one day get a recording contract and release their own music.
