The Doobie Brothers – Lahaina (feat. Mick Fleetwood, Jake Shimabukuro, & Henry Kapono) Official Video
The Doobie Brothers, a renowned rock group known for their four GRAMMY Awards and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction, today released a new single, “Lahaina.” This release, their first since the 2021 album “Liberté,” includes a music video designed to support and show unity with Maui following the tragic wildfires of August 2023.
The band collaborated with notable musicians Mick Fleetwood, Jake Shimabukuro, and Henry Kapono for this meaningful project. Aimed at bringing hope to those impacted and honoring the town’s resilience, the release of “Lahaina” is a heartfelt gesture from the group to the Maui community.
The connection between The Doobie Brothers and Maui, as well as with Mick Fleetwood, is rooted in personal ties to the island of Maui. Members of The Doobie Brothers, Pat Simmons and Michael McDonald, both own homes in Maui, which establishes their personal connection to the island. This personal connection is further highlighted in their efforts to use their music to support those affected by the wildfires in Maui.
Mick Fleetwood, a rock and roll icon, also has a deep connection to Maui. He is a fellow resident of the island, and his involvement in the track “Lahaina” by The Doobie Brothers is a testament to this bond. Tragically, his restaurant on the island was one of the casualties of the wildfires, adding a personal dimension to his participation in this project.
These connections underscore the meaningful collaboration between The Doobie Brothers and Mick Fleetwood in their joint effort to support Maui through their music, particularly in the wake of the devastating wildfires.
Song Lyrics – The Doobie Brothers – Lahaina (feat. Mick Fleetwood, Jake Shimabukuro, & Henry Kapono)
It Calls To Me, Lahaina
A beautiful dream I’m tryin’ to remember
Underneath the banyan tree our love will live forever
Spirits everywhere they whisper in the wind
Waves that kiss the shore at night are calling us again
It calls to me Lahaina
Carry me back home It’s calling me Lahaina
Carry me home Where I belong
Deep roots of the banyan tree growing in the sand
Are strong like the people of the island
These sacred waters are the healing hands of love
That brought us here at last and they call us home again
It calls to me Lahaina
Carry me back home It’s calling me
Lahaina Carry me home
Where I belong
