An estimated $15,000 was raised during a recent benefit concert at Fleetwood’s on Front St. to assist Maui musician Willie K in his battle against lung cancer.

While Willie K was not scheduled to perform, restaurant managers say he couldn’t help himself, adding some haunting and beautiful vocals to “Gold Dust Woman” and “Songbird” along with a guitar solo.

“I’ve known Willie K for over 20 years and I am honored to call him a friend,” said legendary rocker and restaurant owner Mick Fleetwood.  “His talent is astounding, but more than anything, he’s taught me how to live and how to be on these islands with respect to the culture and its people. Tonight, we are here to celebrate him.”

Funds raised will go to the Willie K Cancer Fund. Those wishing to donate can still do so through the Willie K Cancer Fund Go Fund Me account.  Over the past four months, the account has raised $59,066 of its $100,000 goal.


Fleetwood’s on Front St. is a restaurant owned by iconic drummer Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac. Located in Lahaina Maui, the three-story restaurant, bar and music venue boasts panoramic views and award winning cuisine.
