Joe Lewis

Joe Lewis and his wife, Claire, became a part of square dancing in the mid-1940s. Joe and Claire built their own square dance hall in Dallas, TX and maintained a successful home club and class program. Each year Joe would travel to about 35 states and Canadian provinces with his unique style and upbeat delivery. In the 1950s, he was invited to come to Australia a number of times. Joe got a recording contract with Intro Records, and eventually started his own label, J-Bar-L. He recorded about seventy numbers and wrote many classic favorites like Jellybean and Alabama Jubilee. Joe was a founding member of Callerlab and a member of its Board of Governors. In 1961 he was inducted into the Square Dance Hall of Fame. He was a lifetime member of the North Texas Callers Association. In 1975 he was honored with the Callerlab Milestone award. Joe passed away December 11, 1992.
