The Best Men were featured in an article in the Evening Herald on Friday 10th December.
The paper interviewed Jonathan about their song ‘This Is Christmas To Me’, which was selected by Christmas FM in this year’s song competition.
“Dubliner Jonathan Casey (35) from wedding band The Best Men wrote one of the four tunes short-listed for Christmas FM’s 2010 Irish Christmas Song. The Castleknock native told the Herald that Christmas was the most wonderful time of the year and he had been looking for such an opportunity to challenge his creativity. ‘I really love Christmas but writing a Christmas song was one thing I’d never done… my favourite one is Fairytale Of New York, but I also really like those 70s classics, so I wanted to write something in that vein’. The talented musician told the Herald that he was glad he could make a living from his passion and still spend time with his family. ‘Not to sound smug or anything – but I couldn’t hope for anything better, it’s amazing.’ “
