The Whitesidewalls Rock ‘n’ Roll Revue was founded in 1972 in Forest Lake, Minnesota. College classmates Pat Brown and Eric Satterlund discovered a mutual love for 50s and 60s music and decided to form such a group. The Whitesidewalls grew quickly in popularity and became a fixture of the Twin Cities music scene, appearing at ballrooms, bars, corporate and community events and celebrations throughout the 5-state area. They presented the Rock ‘n’ Roll Revue for many summers at the Valleyfair amusement park in Shakopee Minnesota, and were a part of the first Winter Dance Party revival (the annual event commemorating the last shows of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and The Big Bopper at the Surf Ballroom) in Clear Lake Iowa in 1979, and have returned to perform many times at the February event. The Whitesidewalls have operated continuously since 1972 and carry on today, bringing the best of rock and roll, rockabilly and doo-wop from 1954 to 1964 (the “golden age of rock and roll”) to many thousands of friends, fans and dancers each year.

Founder of the group, Pat Brown (“Hound Dog”), plays guitar, drums, and bass as well as sing, and is the band's musical director. David “Swanee” Swanson sings and plays guitar, sax, and keyboards. Other members of the band are Erik “Rocky Beaumont” Swenson on drums, bass, guitar and vocals, Brad “Gino Gambucci” Nelson on bass, keyboards, guitar and vocals, and Bill “Bobby Maestro” Spalding on keyboards, bass, and vocals.

The Whitesidewalls Rock ‘n’ Roll Review remains very active today. In addition to the many shows they play each year they also produce a weekly radio show hosted by Twin Cities disc jockey Michael Patrick “Records” Ryan, which is broadcast in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Florida and New Jersey and streamed online. They have also staged many performances of their 2-act musical play, “Love Potion #10”, around the region to great success. They have been inducted into the Mid-America Music Hall of Fame, the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, and the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They continue to thrive, and feel blessed that they can bring joy to their audience while doing something that they love.
