“How did we first learn about the Okee Dokee Brothers?” I asked Mike last night.
We considered for a moment. Then Mike said:
“You read about them in the newspaper.”
Sure enough, two summers ago I read all about Joe and Justin in the Star Tribune. We saw them at the Minnesota State Fair with fourteen-month-old Zoe, who loved bopping along to their music. We bought two of their CDs. And today, we get to see them at, of all places, the Kimball Public Library!
I am always on the lookout for music that’s fun for the whole family, and the Okee Dokee Brothers absolutely fit the bill. (Although, I’m pretty sure I like Americana Folk music quite a bit more than Mike does, but two out of three family members isn’t bad, right?)
We don’t have their latest CD,Can You Canoe? (Pro Tip: hint, hint), but we already know the title track is fabulous. There’s even a music video:
Pretty great, huh?
And that, friends, is why everyone should read the newspaper.
What’s the best thing you’ve discovered by reading the paper? Or, what’s your favorite family / children’s music group or song?
