The Okee Dokee Brothers
Act One Family
Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander have built a plaid-shirted national following with their Grammy Award® winning folk music that celebrates everyday explorers, young and old. But whether it's indoors or out, The Okee Dokee Brothers are most passionate about songs meant to be sung together. “So sing to the sunrise and sing to the moon,” the Brothers say. “Sing with your kids and sing with your neighbors. Sometimes it just takes singing a song with one another to remind us that we’re all family.”
With songs written under wide-open skies and harmonies fine-tuned around the campfire, a spirit of friendship and adventure is at the heart of their Americana folk music. The Okee Dokee Brothers make room for kids to dance, for parents to share stories, and for everyone to gain respect for nature, each other, and the world we live in.
