SOMERS POINT — A Hurricane Irma relief concert starring Mishka, a reggae musician from Bermuda, will begin at 6 p.m. Sunday at Clancy’s by the Bay.

All of the $15 ticket cost will be used for relief efforts, organizers said.

Patrons are asked to bring recommended donation items, which include water, clothing, sneakers, socks, toiletries, cleaning products, bleach, deodorant, sunscreen, tarps, duct tape, work gloves and hand sanitizer.

Donations may be made on the day of the show or mailed to SHUZZ Warehouse, 3600 NW Boca Raton Blvd., Unit 1405, Boca Raton, FL 33431.

Donations will be transported to the Florida Keys and other places in the state by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, which is a concert presenter with Clancy’s.

Mishka’s music is at its core Caribbean, where he was raised, but there are also bass-heavy, roots reggae, mellow acoustic ballads, songs of love and songs of social justice and consciousness.

Three of Mishka’s releases reached No. 1 on Billboard Magazine’s reggae chart. He has performed with Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown, the Roots, Burning Spear, Matisyahu and Michael Franti.

The party starts at 5 p.m., an hour before the 90-minute show.

Tickets are available at the door. Clancy’s is located at 101 E. Maryland Ave.

Drink specials include $3 Bud/Bud Light, $4 imported drafts, $5 green tea shots and $5 Largo lemonade. Concertgoers must be 21 or older.
