Almost a decade ago, the town of Sabattus welcomed a host of VH1 A, B, C, and probably D-list celebrities to our very own Mixers Nightclub.

The previous owner, Mike Yohe, was friends with many of these celebrities, and extended invites to people like Bam Margera, pro skateboarder and member of Jackass on MTV, Megan and Brandi from VH1's Rock of Love, Ron Jeremy (male entertainer), and even singer/songwriter Vanilla Ice!

Yohe was able to bring to Sabattus what others couldn't: a chance to see stardom up close ad personal. And boy was it interesting!

Expanding the entertainment at this particular nightclub resulted in fans coming in droves from all over Maine for the chance to meet some of their favorite celebs. Others came purely out of curiosity.

I personally was there when the crew of Jackass made an appearance, and the number of body parts waiting to be signed increased by the minute.

We were in a sea of flesh, and naturally, the squad stayed true to their name, pulling pranks and spraying beer everywhere. This display of mayhem tuned the crowd in, and made all of us feel a part of the crazed movement that was Jackass.

There was a VIP room in the back, and you had to be a good friend of the owner (or a part of the team) to get in. I was able to sneak a peak while waiting in line for the girls bathroom, and let's just say the air was so thick it prevented me from seeing anything at all.

It was a good time had by all, and many nights that Mainers will never forget. Mike Yohe was able to bring the flash of the celeb world into our little community, and it was totally awesome.

Today, Mixers Nightclub is still a popular hot spot in Sabattus, hosting drag shows, live performance art shows, and '80s rock cover bands like Hairy Pie.

It's commendable to see Mixers still going strong despite their struggles during the pandemic, owner changes, and etcetera.

I am convinced that Mixers will always be a spot where you are gifted with a story of a lifetime.
