Take A Musical Adventure With The Okee Dokee Brothers
Childhood friends Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing grew up together in Denver Colorado, with the great outdoors at their feet and a sense of adventure that never left them. Now as adults, they've translated their passion for exploration into the performance of original Bluegrass and Americana-tinged music for children and families, with the aim of inspiring them to get outside, climb trees, hike and get creative, in turn creating respect for the natural world and themselves.
In 2012, the Okee Dokee Brothers released 'Can You Canoe?', an album written during the dynamic duo's 30 day canoe trip down the Mississippi river. The compilation's high-spirited songs about friendship and life's ever changing nature won the 2013 Best Children's Album Grammy Award and paved the way for subsequent albums 'Through The Woods' and 'Saddle Up', which each garnered a Grammy nomination in the same category. Filled with heart and humour, their fun songwriting and folksy rhythms encourage much singing along from their young audiences and even an adult or two!
