Adman drums up new interest in The Lookalikes

It’s not just Take That and Horslips who are getting back together…
After a 30-year break, Mike Mesbur, creative director, Y&R Ireland, will join his three fellow musicians on stage when the iconic early Eighties band The Lookalikes reunite for a once-off show at The Button Factory in Dublin’s Temple Bar on Saturday, September 5th.
Once signed to Riva Records in the UK and EMI in Ireland, The Lookalikes are one of the best known Irish bands never to have made it big internationally. They had two number one singles with ‘Can I Take You Home Tonight?’ and ‘Baby Don’t Leave’.
Alongside drummer Mesbur is lead singer Sean O’Connor, who continued playing music after the band split. He worked with Phil Lynott, Eric Bell, Roger Daltrey, John Entwhistle, Snowy White, Les Paul and Clarence Celmons and is a regular on the Irish music circuit.
Keyboard player Peter ‘Sid’ Keenan went on to play with Stockton’s Wing before taking up a career in IT. He now works for Carroll’s Irish Gift Shops. Eamonn ‘Eamo’ Doyle performed with Aslan and then moved to London where he runs a driving school and is part of the London club scene.
After The Lookalikes, Mesbur moved to London to join Irish band Zerra 1. He later worked as a copywriter with Lowe & Partners in New York before returning to Dublin. He worked with Young Euro RSCG for 11 years and he now has a degree in psychotherapy.
