Local musicians will gather at the Brewer Eagles Club Saturday in support of a musician’s daughter who’s dealing with complications from diabetes.

Maine’s local musician community is a strong unit that considers itself family. So when a member of that family is hurting, the entire community comes together in support. Anyone who’s been around the local music scene in the past many years has probably met Keith and Roseanne Bates. A benefit in Brewer Saturday will benefit their daughter, Alyson Bates Robertson, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 10 years old. Now, she’s dealing with some serious complications, including 2 required eye surgeries and both heart and kidney disease. Between the hospital stays and medications, bills are piling up for Alyson and her husband Scotty.

On Saturday, several bands will provide music in the upper level of the Brewer Eagles Club, for a suggested donation of $10. If you can’t afford the $10, then give what you can. And if you can give more, it will be greatly appreciated! Participating bands, in no particular order, are the Allison Ames Band, the Ian Black Band, the Stillwater Band, Crossroads,the Rick Carter Band, and Driven.

In addition, there will be items up for bid in both live and silent auctions, so bring some extra cash! Some auction items listed on the event’s Facebook page include an Emerald Ibanez electric guitar with stand, a Power Cooker Plus 8 quart pressure cooker, twin air mattress, and original artwork, among many other items!

Anyone who’s unable to attend but still wishes to donate can send checks or money orders, payable to Scott or Alyson Robertson to:

  • Scott Robertson
  • P.O.Box 3181
  • Brewer, ME 04412
