One Direction fans all over Northern Ireland are in for a treat.
A new tribute to the pop sensations is being created by Belfast entertainment company Diva Dolls Entertainment.
Having found their Harry Styles in 18 year old performer Nathan Gregg they are now on the search for the country’s answer to hunks Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.
The Belfast based 1D tribute will be performing all the band’s hits from Best Song Ever and Story of My Life to the Blondie cover One Way Or Another and The Undertones Teenage Kicks.
And Nathan, from Lisburn, says he’s looking forward to getting a little taste of the Harry magic.
He said: “I was approached by Alex Jay who performs with and manages The Diva Dolls and some other acts in Belfast.
“The group was her idea and she had heard that people kept telling me I looked like Harry. There were even people who wanted to get pictures with me.
“I had seen The Diva Dolls perform and I liked how professional an outfit they were and how they were managed so I thought ‘why not give it a shot’.”
Luckily for Nathan he liked One Direction.
“I really feel excited about what lies ahead, I can’t wait to get out there” he said, adding: “Most people say I look like Harry but in addition to that I think our humour is similar. I’m a little bit cheeky too.”
Tribute act manager Alex Jay said the search is ongoing for her Niall, Zayn, Liam and Louis but she won’t settle for second best.
She added: “I’m searching for guys who can sing, age range between 18 and 26 who look similar to members of One Direction and who would like to be part of something fun.
“They need to be in a position to dedicate themselves to rehearse and work with the group and to take the job seriously.
“No experience is essential but they do need to have a good singing voice and vocal coaching and stage direction will be provided for them.”
Already Alex has been inundated with requests to book the band so she hopes the new tribute will be on the road later this year.
