The Door Stoppers are an energetic quintet from Milwaukee that specialize in music styles from the 30s, 40s and 50s. Capturing the sounds of early Jazz, Jump Blues and early Rock n’ roll, they are sure to get you out of your seat and swingin’ those feet!


The Westerlees are like old-fashioned, country-baked pie. They don’t make them much like that anymore, but every time you taste one you wonder why not.

Steel Guitar, Fiddle, Clarinet, and more all come together to deliver wholesome (and perhaps more often, daringly tart) tunes from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Everything from the Light Crust Doughboys to Bob Wills to Hank Williams is performed with levity and humor. Rare and popular swing dance standards are carefully selected and arranged for maximum danceabilty. They also have many original tunes that capture the drollery of the Western Swing genre.

The band was founded in 2014 by singer and steel guitarist, Patrick Brenner. The band also includes Guitarist Wes Altice. Eli Broxham on Upright Bass. Shawn Drake, Allen Russell, and Ethan Adelsman on Fiddle. Jerry Kaye on Sax and Clarinet. As well as a rotating cast of other soloists and vocalists, each bringing their own expertise and personality to the delectably nostalgic sound and performance of the Westerlees.

Come see what audiences at county fairs, swing dances, weddings, street festivals and dive bars have been buzzing about. If you get a taste of their down-home, old-timey, country flavor, you are guaranteed to be entertained!
