Music and fun for the whole family is coming to Story Time at the Cloquet Public Library at 10 a.m., Wed., Feb. 8, with the Okee Dokee Brothers. The program is free of charge and open to the public. The brothers have a mission to remind children (and adults) of their intrinsic ability to discover, imagine and create through music. Here's what their fans are saying about them:
"They have great lyrics. They're like the Pixar of music. Good for kids but good for adults." - Sally Leitch Shoreview, MN
“They engaged the entire crowd, kids and adults alike. The music is nice to listen to, even as an adult. I bought two CDs and catch myself listening to them even when my son is not around!" - Mom at The Overture Center's Kids in the Rotunda Series (Madison, WI)
"Shel Silverstein meets Woody Guthrie and they make a PB&J sandwich." - John Van Rooy
"The Okee Dokee Brothers - a jam band for the diaper crowd." - Kristina Ortega
"The Okee Dokee Brothers address issues of communication, cognitive, motor, emotional, and social skills in a fun, interactive, uplifting, and inspirational way." - Roberta S. Kagin, Dir. of Music Therapy, Augsburg College
"They're like the Wiggles, only cool." - Owen, Age 5
"Joe and Justin were engaging, professional, enthusiastic, and showed great interest in the site and children. I would highly recommend them to anyone!" – Shelley Steingraeber, Discover Club, St. Paul Public Schools.
