"Can You Canoe?" by The Okee Dokee Brothers CD Review...



"As childhood friends, Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing spent summers at their neighborhood creek building makeshift rafts, fishing for crawdads and dreaming of great river adventures.
Now, as The Okee Dokee Brothers, they have realized these boyhood dreams via a great adventure on the Mississippi River, culminating with Can You Canoe? This new CD-DVD set will be available on May 15th (Red Eye Distribution, $16/$8.99 digital). This is the first release in a planned Adventure Album series for families.
It all began last June when Joe and Justin embarked on a canoe trip in Minneapolis and continued down the river for the next 30 days until they arrived at the St. Louis Gateway Arch. During their month-long journey on the Mississippi, they camped, canoed, filmed and most importantly, composed the songs that make up their new album for kids and families."


What we thought:  This is a really fun CD.  If you have outdoorsy kids, they are sure to enjoy the theme and the messages in these "river" songs.  These songs are fun and funny and beautifully performed:)  We love the pairing of the banjo and the guitar and The Okee Dokee Brothers are great storytellers.  This would be a great CD to take on a family camp out this summer.  ABCD Diaries gives Can You Canoe? an A+!
