Saddle Up: A Western Adventure Album

Saddle Up: A Western Adventure Album (CD+DVD)

Audio Cd (2 discs) 2016

Grammy Award-winning musicians who inspire families to get outside and get creative: http://www.okeedokee.org

As childhood friends growing up in Denver Colorado, Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing were always exploring the outdoors. Whether it was rafting down their neighborhood creek, taking long bike rides into the country or discovering hiking trails through the Rocky Mountains, Joe and Justin were born adventurers. Now, as The Grammy Award Winning Okee Dokee Brothers, they have put this passion for the outdoors at the heart of their Americana Folk music.

Joe and Justin record and perform family music with a goal to inspire children and their parents to get outside and experience nature. They believe this can motivate kids to gain a greater respect for the natural world, their communities and themselves.

The two-time Parents’ Choice Award winners have garnered praise from the likes of NPR’s All Things Considered and USA Today, and have been called “two of family music’s best songwriters”. Their nationwide fan base is drawn to their witty lyrics, strong musicianship and unique folk style. By appealing to the musical needs of the entire family and recognizing that kids deserve quality music, The Okee Dokee Brothers are working full-time to advance the family music genre. 

Saddle Up, which was released May 2016, is the third in their Adventure Album series. This CD is our first listen to the Okee Dokee Brothers. We highly recommend (Yeehaw!) It is upbeat music that I feel good about having my little one listen to. A hit for both kids and adults, it has good lyrics and instrumental quality. Also, the songs are without any television connection. (Disney and the like)

a beautiful, smart way to protect from the sun. I highly recommend

100 % cotton canvas fabric measuring 10.8 feet x 5.9 feet

the design allows the breeze to blow through

lightweight makes it easily portable in a zippered bag (weighs only 9 pounds)

easy set-up. All ropes already connected

sand and grass pegs for either sand or grass setup

natural sun protection in six fashionable print styles

South Beach 

South Beac Tent

Please watch the setup video available to view from the Lovin’ Summer website’s main page.

Unlike any other beach shade products on the market today, we designed our Lovin’ Summer beach tents to put an end to uncomfortable shade protection, without the complicated knots and instructions like the majority of freestanding or “pop-up” beach tents available today.

Driven by our passion for the beach, our beach shade products have combined coastal style with practical design to create a simple innovative product that looks great, offers maximum light, airflow and UV protection.
