Okee Dokee Brothers

The Grammy-winning Okee Dokee Brothers will be performing at the Sheldon Theatre in October. 

Okee Dokee Brothers 

The Grammy winning Okee Dokee Brothers are set to perform at the Sheldon Theatre. The Sheldon says of the duo on its website, “Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander have built a plaid-shirted national following with their outdoor adventure-themed albums ‘Can You Canoe?,’ ‘Through The Woods,’ ‘Saddle Up’ and ‘Winterland.’ But whether it’s indoors or out, the Okee Dokee Brothers believe that as long as folks are singing together there’s a glimpse of hope for our world. They’ll share old favorites as well as brand new tunes from their brand new album, ‘Songs for Singin’ and invite everyone to join the chorus and sing along. ‘So sing to the sunrise and sing to the moon,’ the Brothers say. ‘Sing with your kids and sing with your neighbors. Sometimes it just takes singing a song with one another to remind us that we’re all family.’”

The concert will be at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 1. Tickets are $26 per person.
