Lester Chambers has been a ground breaking force in music for over 50 years. In 2009 Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, with the help of Lester’s friends in the music industry were able to raise urgent contributions to pay for medical treatment and housing expenses.
This past year with renewed health Lester embarked upon a path to expand his live performance schedule and supplement his fixed income. Although several outstanding shows and events transpired, including a sold out benefit with friend Steve Cropper, financial security is still out of reach.
Sweet Relief is reaching out on behalf of Lester Chambers to develop a financial fund to pay for his housing and medical expenses currently not covered. Lester represents so many elder musicians that have meager income, rapidly reducing royalties and an ever increasing cost of living.
