The Quebe Sisters Band is an American fiddle Western swing group from Fort Worth, Texas, United States. The band consists of sisters Grace, Sophia and Hulda Quebe as well as Joey L. McKenzie (born 1963) on guitar and Drew Phelps on upright bass. Formed in 2000, the band performs Western swing, hot jazz, vintage country and Western (Bob Wills, Sons of the Pioneers, etc.) and traditional Texas style fiddle tunes.[1] They are currently based in Fort Worth and tour nationally and internationally,[2][3] including appearances on the Grand Ole Opry.

The Quebe (pronounced kway-bee) sisters grew up in Krum in Denton County in north Texas in a devout Presbyterian home. Their mother homeschooled the girls.[4]

The three sisters started taking fiddle lessons from Sherry F. McKenzie (Joey's wife), a former national fiddle champion, and later from Joey, also a former national fiddle champion. In 2000, the Quebes moved to Burleson in Johnson County, Texas, where the McKenzies also reside.[4]

The sisters learned traditional Texas-style fiddling. The girls began entering fiddle contests and had success early on; winning several state, regional and national fiddle championships.[5]

The Quebes have been featured on a segment of Bob Phillips' Texas Country Reporter anthology television series and on episode 571 of the WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour. In 2010 the band appeared at the Cambridge Folk Festival in England. On November 20, 2010, the The Quebe Sisters were featured on A Prairie Home Companion, broadcast from Houston, Texa
