Today at Beat Kitchen we shot The Okee Dokee Brothers' excellent bluegrass set and we shot a video interview with the band members Joe and Justin. They've been friends since they were 3 and told us about their crazy, cool canoe adventure down the Mississippi River that inspired their new, upcoming CD! Check it out soon, right here at ChiIL Mama.com, along with a host of other great kindie band interviews! We'll also be reviewing The Okee Dokee Brothers' new release coming in May 2012, and running some sweet CD give aways of their first CDs!
****Here's some of our live video coverage of their show last year at Beat Kitchen to tide you over a few days, till we can get caught up on our editing. (We have much better gear now....1 year later, but it's fun to see a blast from the past anyway.)
This week we're posting all our great photos from Beat Kitchen's Winter Fest 1/29/12 including ChiIL Mama's Rock Star Photo Booth and candids with our fun dress up clothes and instrument "petting zoo".
This Sunday, Feb. 12-noon:
