Longtime friends Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing are heading down the Mississippi River tomorrow, embarking on what they hope will be both a geographical and a musical journey.
The two perform together as The Okee Dokee Brothers, creating songs that are geared toward kids, but parent-friendly, too.
Mailander and Lansing plan to paddle from Minneapolis to the St. Louis Gateway Arch over the course of 30 days, accompanied by a good friend/naturalist guide. The duo say this trip will serve as the raw material for the first in a series of "adventure albums."
The Okee Dokee Brothers performed for Radio Heartland and chatted with host Mike Pengra. You can listen to their music, and their plans for their trip, by clicking on the link below:
