Back to Meet the Authors

As childhood best friends, Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing dreamed of being professional singer-songwriters. Then, one day (poof!) they were all grown up and playing their music on the scene. Inspired by their own backyard adventures, the Okee Dokee Brothers perform original music that reminds audiences of their own make-believe experiences. Their latest CD is “Can You Canoe?,” based on their month-long canoe journey down the Mississippi River. An Okee Dokee Brothers concert is bound to be a rollicking adventure for all ages.
