The Quebe Sisters
The Quebe Sisters
With over fifteen years of touring to date, The Quebe Sisters have delivered their authentic triple fiddle and three-part harmony sound to the concert halls and festivals of North America, Europe, and Russia.

Grace, Sophia, and Hulda Quebe front an innovative Progressive Western Swing band of archtop guitar, upright bass, fiddles and sibling harmony. The Dallas-based five-piece presents a unique Americana blend of Western Swing, Jazz-influenced Swing, Country, Texas-Style Fiddling, and Western music.

“We differentiate our music as ‘Progressive Western Swing’ from simply ‘Western Swing’ because we aren’t trying to sound just like Bob Wills,” Grace Quebe explains. “Instead, we continue his vision, playing the style he pioneered in an authentic way by incorporating new genres and songs, interpreting them using our own unique voice through Country instrumentation.”

The band’s stripped-down acoustic instrumentation breathes new life into seasoned sounds once found in Texas dance halls and honky-tonks. Grace continues, “To us, preserving the tradition of Western Swing isn’t about keeping something alive like a relic. Western Swing has always been about innovation.”

Innovation has led the sisters to channel the musical connection between danceability and emotiveness, combining old sounds with new feelings and old feelings with new sounds. It’s not nostalgia that drives the band as purveyors of Western Swing, but the aspiration to take the music back to its roots and sustain the spirit of Swing.

Combine the musical stylings of The Mills Brothers, Ray Price, Count Basie, Willie Nelson, and you have none other than The Quebe Sisters.
Judd Wasserman
Judd Wasserman
Judd Wasserman writes songs and sings them solo, and with a band. He picks finger- style folk and blues, at times with more complex jazz harmony to get his songs across in a style all his own. Judd writes from the perspective of the meek, the desperate, and the mystical. You won't find songs like Judd's by anyone else. He has a thing all his own.

Judd's voice is soulful, and his solo style is often compared to 70's artists like Jim Croce, John Denver, and Cat Stevens. Judd's acoustic and electric guitar chops land him as a session player and collaborator, playing anything from jazz to bluegrass, funk to punk, blues to metal. Judd is an exceptional lead guitarist. His drum and bass chops ain't bad either.


Notable highlights for Judd are supporting Lights (Can) on her Siberia Acoustic tour in 2013, and sharing the stage with some of Seattle's finest, including Andrew McKaig (POTUSA), Mark Pickerel, Ty Bailie (Katy Perry Band), Mike Musburger, and many many more. Judd appeared in the documentary film "Kurt Cobain About a Son."

Judd has toured extensively, playing festivals, bars, clubs, and theaters. Judd has a music degree from Cornish College of the Arts, where he wrote and arranged for strings, horns, percussion, and jazz ensemble. In his free time, Judd enjoys playing the blues. Judd is also a renowned guitar teacher in Seattle, and has taught at Ballard Academy, Bellevue College, VALVE, and many other spots.
