The Stolen Sweets
are sure to hold you spellbound with their refreshing and unique interpretations of vocal jazz tunes from the 1920’s and 1930’s. The band’s repertoire is inspired by the unconventional arrangements and virtuosic three-part harmonies of the Boswell Sisters (Martha, Connee and Vet), one of the most popular vocal groups of that era. During the jazz age, a new phrase entered the musical palaver: the Boswell Sound. This new sound was innovative and optimistic – a fitting remedy for the Depression blues. Unlike sister acts that came before and after them, these girls were gritty and progressive. They were classically trained instrumentalists who, thanks to Martha’s piano savvy, developed their own complex arrangements and sang lyrics intended solely for men.
