THE QUEBE SISTERS BAND www.quebesistersband.com THE QUEBE SISTERS BAND is one of the most exciting new groups to come on the music scene in years. Formed in 2000, The Quebe Sisters Band (pronounced kway-bee) performs a refreshing blend of western swing (like heroes Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys), hot jazz and swing standards (Benny Goodman), western (Sons of the Pioneers), vintage country, and traditional Texas-style fiddle tunes. The Fort Worth-based group features the intricate triple fiddles and vintage-style three-part harmony vocals of Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe, along with the swinging rhythm guitar of Joey McKenzie and upright bassist Drew Phelps. All three girls have been Texas and national fiddle Champions, while McKenzie is a three-time world champion fiddler. The music of The Quebe Sisters Band appeals to a wide variety of audiences. The band’s fervent followers include western swing fans, western/cowboy music devotees, bluegrass addicts, jazz and swing buffs, string band aficionados, lovers of the classics, and old-time fiddle fans. The band plays for them at concert halls, western swing festivals, folk festivals, bluegrass festivals, western/cowboy gatherings, jazz festivals, nightclubs, rodeos, and private events alike. Since its formation, The Quebe Sisters Band has performed across the country, with shows at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., New York City’s Lincoln Center and The National Folk Festival and on “Ernest Tubb’s Midnite Jamboree” (WSM Radio). Concert performances include shows with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, Asleep at the Wheel, Merle Haggard, Riders in the Sky and The Reno Philharmonic. # # #
