The Okee Dokee Brothers

by okeedokeebrosokeedokeebros 26 Jan 2012 15:24

As childhood friends, Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing, spent summers at their neighborhood creek building makeshift rafts, fishing for crawdads, and dreaming of great river adventures.

Now, as The Okee Dokee Brothers, they have realized these boyhood dreams on none other than the great Mississippi River. On June 1st, 2011, Joe and Justin began a canoe trip in Minneapolis, MN and continued down the river for the next 30 days until they arrived at the St. Louis Gateway Arch. During their month long journey on the Mississippi, they camped, canoed, filmed, and most importantly, composed the songs that make up their new album for kids and families.

Can You Canoe? is the first CD and DVD in what The Okee Dokee Brothers are calling their “Adventure Album Series.” Produced by Dean Jones in his Rosendale, NY hay-bale studio, the record highlights guest appearances from Garth Hudson (The Band), Elizabeth Mitchell (You Are My Flower), as well as Morgan Taylor and Rachel Loshak (Gustafer Yellowgold).

Snapdragon Seeds Music is an upbeat, fun children’s educational music project that teaches rhymes, patterns, synonyms, sentence structure, songwriting, movement and the intellectual power of asking questions. My main message is that we all need to keep learning because the world needs smart people.
