>> The Okee Dokee Brothers: Take It Outside (2010)

Yee haa, slap that knee, get that fiddle out and play that bluegrass music like it was your business. That’s exactly what it is for the Okee Dokee Brothers, their business to sing the bluegrass songs that they have done with the CD Take It Outside. Though, the songs are bluegrass, no mistaking that, but they are not the traditional bluegrass songs that are played.

With the album, Take It Outside, has 13 bluegrass songs that would fit better being played in a tavern or at a local fair than they do for just listening in a normal every day fashion. I say that because the songs are not a serious set of songs. The lyrics are fun and just playful. I wasn’t able to take any of the songs seriously, which is easy when one song is talking about tippy toes and another is about a water balloon. The Okee Dokee Brothers are good in their style but the songs are so playful and even a little childish. It’s a fun album to listen to, the vocals are sung well and I did enjoy listening to them for a few minutes.

Thing is though as good as the songs are performed they fit more with being played at a bar by some local group. The songs make good background noise, they make for a good chuckle, and will make whoever is listening to them talk about the songs. Which is all good and well but they don’t make for a good song to listen to multiple times. After one time of hearing the songs I was already finished with listening to the songs. For me I think the album would have been better if some of the songs were a little more serious with just a few of the playful songs mixed in.
