Theres never been a group quite like Ft. Worths Quebe Sisters. Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe the latter of whom isnt even out of her teens yet all play fiddle Johnny Gimble-style on Western and big band swing, hot jazz, rollicking rags and classic country and they sing close, effervescent three-part like the Andrews Sisters, though they happen to favor modern ranch wear over the Andrews cutesy Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy military uniforms. Currently backed by guitarist Joey McKenzie who, along with his wife Sherry, was one of their first fiddle teachers and standup bassist Drew Phelps, the Quebes gave their first public performance barely five years ago. In the meantime, theyve won over a few folks who can tell top notch Western swing from the mediocre stuff Asleep At the Wheel frontman Ray Benson, for instance, and Marty Stuart, whos had them on his TV show.
