Joe McQueen Quartet

joeJoe McQueen Quartet

FREE to the Public

Joe McQueen was born in 1919. He grew up in Ardmore, Oklahoma. He played tuba, clarinet, and then saxophone in the Ardmore High School band. He was also on the football squad.

McQueen began playing professional jazz at the age of sixteen. He was introduced to the saxophone a few years earlier by his cousin, Herschel Evans, who played in Count Basie's band in the mid-1930s.

In 1945, McQueen and his wife, Thelma, traveled to Ogden, Utah. He was at the time in a jazz band that dissolved when its leader gambled away the troupe's earnings en route from Las Vegas. McQueen reformed the band and stayed in Ogden.

Ogden, Utah, in the near post-World War II era was a hot spot for jazz music, as it was a major stop on the railroad route west to San Francisco, California from Kansas City and beyond. The city was mentioned in the beatnik writings of Jack Kerouac, and was the hometown of trumpeter Red Nichols.

During his life, McQueen has performed in Ogden with jazz luminaries such as Charlie Parker, Chet Baker (a fellow Oklahoman), Paul Gonsalves, Lester Young, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Bob Hope and others. McQueen has toured as a musician in the Rocky Mountain West. He played in 1962 in Idaho Falls, Idaho with Hoagy Carmichael.

During his early years in Ogden, McQueen worked and played at the Porters and Waiters Club in Ogden. This was one of the few venues open to black Americans at the time. McQueen was the first African-American in Utah to play at previously white-only establishments and to have a mixed-race band.

McQueen has worked as a truck mechanic and automotive technology instructor at Weber State University. As of 2005, he works as a full-time volunteer elder care worker; in this capacity he assists infirm senior citizens.

In 2002, the Governor of Utah established April 18 as an official "Joe McQueen Day" for the State of Utah.

McQueen has been performing for over 80 years and at the seasoned age of 97, he's not slowing down! Joe McQueen continues to perform over 60 shows a year with his quartet featuring Ryan Conger on Hammond organ, Brad Wright on guitar, and Dr. Don Keipp on drums.
