Necessary Music Productions and Flatbread Company present a hurricane relief benefit concert as part of the restaurant's weekly Tuesday night benefit schedule. The Benefit 4 Bahamas Hurricane Relief Evening is Tuesday, Oct. 1, from 5 to 9 p.m. with no cover charge beyond food and drinks. Every pizza bought will send a few dollars to Bahamians in need.

The music features Bahamian Mainer Dequhn SolNJha, of the Maine reggae band Mystic Vibes, with a special solo performance to personalize the stories and spirits of Bahamans in these hard times for their homeland. Dequhn expresses his original lyrics with a passion gained through a life based in the spirituality of Rastafari. His band Mystic Vibes has had the privilege of sharing the bill with such great acts as Jimmy Cliff, Toots and the Maytals, The Wailers, Third World, Morgan Heritage, and John Browns Body.

Bahamians are still scrambling to respond to a catastrophic Category 5 hurricane that the nation’s prime minister has described as a “historic tragedy” since landfall Sept. 1. Hurricane Dorian claimed at least 56 lives and destroyed many buildings. As of Sept. 20, more than 1,300 people were missing, according to NEMA and the Bahamas Royal Police Force. The United Nations estimates that approximately 70,000 people in the Bahamas are in need of shelter and other basic needs.

Flatbread Company is located at 399 Commercial St. For more information, call 706-4146.
