Mellow Dees of Okoboji
August 6, 7:00 pm
-Okoboji Circle of Hope
The Mellow Dees of Okoboji are a trio of musicians with deep roots in the Iowa Great Lakes. Even more, they are rooted and grounded in the love of Christ.
“…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge…” (Ephesians 3:17–19).
Over twenty years ago, they began playing music together within their church. At that time and even earlier, the members were active in music groups, praise team and music education; writing, arranging, teaching and performing/recording. Fairly recently, The Mellow Dees of Okoboji branched out to bring mellow or easy listening and uplifting music to area communities. Mainly instrumental, the talented trio plays electric piano, keyboard, bass guitar, flute and ukulele. All three musicians enjoy adding vocals.
The twist on the spelling of melody gives homage to the first names of the group. “D” for Diane (Wahlman) and Deb (Lenertz) and “E” for Eric (Wahlman).
The concert will take place at the Okoboji Circle of Hope Amphitheater. Their will be seating in Amphitheater, but feel free to bring your lawn chairs to spread out even more. Golf cart rides to the beach front are provided. Parking is available along Arrowhead St. In the case of bad weather the concert will take place in the Okoboji chapel.
