This program is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited. Dancing and participation are encouraged.

“Letting loose in a library is usually frowned on but with The Okee Dokee Brothers it’s encouraged,” said Anoka County Commissioner and Library Board liaison Jim Kordiak.

The original music of The Okee Dokee Brothers is rooted in their childhood imaginations and is inspired by their own backyard adventures.

Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing were childhood best friends who grew up in Denver, Colo., and are now musicians whose songs give audiences the opportunity to be both silly and serious.

“This program serves as a wonderful connecting point for families as every song makes room for kids to dance, parents to feel like kids again and everyone to gain respect for nature, each other and the world we live in,” said Anoka County Library Board Vice President Cathy Montain.

“Escape the summer heat and enjoy this cool, interactive and entertaining program.

“This is a show for the whole family to enjoy, while learning more about nature and the outdoors.”

The Okee Dokee Brothers is presented by GL Berg and Anoka County Library in partnership with MELSA (Metropolitan Library Service Agency) and is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
