Santana and The Doobie Brothers teamed up to cover Bob Marley and the Wailers' "Exodus" on Sunday at the DTE Energy Music Theatre near Detroit.

According to Billboard, the two bands usually get together to perform "She's Not There," the 1964 Zombies hit that Santana covered in 1977.

On Sunday, however, Carlos Santana told the crowd they decided to cover "Exodus" because "we smoked some different kind of weed. Is it legal here yet?"

The combination of 17 musicians, including Santana and the Doobie Brothers, brought alive Bob Marley's "Exodus," which also included a bit of "Get Up, Stand Up".

Santana also paid tribute to the late Aretha Franklin in her home town as her first death anniversary nears.

Before performing "Black Magic Woman", Santana shouted, "Our queen that ascended into another dimension. She's still here with us -- she just changed her zip code."
