A Newry trio who are setting up a tribute act to the iconic 70’s & 80’s disco music legends ‘The Village People’ have asked for a new member to come forward after their first performance failed to have the same impact with only having Y.M & C, essentially they are searching for their ‘A’ to complete the quartet.

The band leader Davy Hyland who has loved the Village People since 1977 told Newry Spud:

“I have always had a deep love for the Village People. The way they depict American masculine cultural stereotypes as well as their catchy tunes and suggestive lyrics had me hooked from day one. I spoke to Kevin McAteer at a recent Council meeting and he told me he too had a deep love for the band so we formed our own tribute act called ‘Macho Men’.

But to be honest we need a fourth member as when we play the fan favourite Y.M.C.A it doesn’t have the same kick to it with us only having the Y.M.C, so you can see the predicament we’re in here.”

The band will be holding open auditions for their elusive 4th member so if you want to join with the Newry ‘Macho Men’ the open auditions will be next Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 5-10pm in the Hibs club. All welcome.
