Okee Dokee Brothers

GRAMMY-Winning Folk & Roots Music for Families

Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander have been exploring the outdoors together since they were kids. Now, as the GRAMMY-winning Okee Dokee Brothers, they write songs to encourage kids and families to get outside and get creative. Their brand new album Winterland, is a tribute to the season of coziness, family time, and outdoor fun! This cold-weather project is the follow-up to their wildly popular Adventure Album trilogy which was inspired by their extended canoe trip down the Mississippi River (Can You Canoe?), their month-long trek along the Appalachian Trail (Through The Woods) and a joyous horseback adventure through the American West (Saddle Up). 

With songs written under wide-open skies and harmonies fine-tuned around the campfire, the natural world 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.

A full-length Orchestra Program for young audiences is available for touring with scores and parts developed in partnership with the Minnesota Orchestra.

“The lyrics are playful, engaging and subtly filled with life lessons. These are songs that encourage kids to find happiness with fewer material possessions and embrace adventure even in trying situations.”
