Stolen Sweets & Blue 4 Trio
The Stolen Sweets formed in 2005 with the intention of reviving the songs of 1930s sister act, The Boswell Sisters, whose deco-era music provided radio listeners a ray of hope during a truly dispiriting economic depression. Comprised of vocalists Jen Bernard, Lara Michell and Erin Sutherland, guitarists Pete Krebs and David Langenes (both of whom sing) and double bass player Keith Brush, The Sweets' repertoire has expanded to include material from the 1920s -1940s. Their arrangements are still inspired by the Boswells' tight 3-part harmonies, frequent tempo changes and "knowing shrugs and raised eyebrows,"  but also incorporate gypsy jazz manouche accompaniment, reminiscent of Django Reinhardt.  The Sweets' recent exploits have included a headline performance at the "Boswell Centennial Celebration" in New Orleans, an exciting 6-country European tour and the honor of winning "Best of Art Beat" on National Public Television.  Come see why people of all ages are flocking to see them light up a room with their vintage sound!

Blue 4 Trio performs music that swings. Nat "King" Cole Trio meets the Mills Brothers. Fats Waller meets Fats Domino. Slim Galliard meets Fred Astaire. It's music from the '20s to the '60s, all happening at the same time, woven into a seamless, beautiful whole.   At the core of this group's sound are the band's sometimes sweet, sometimes rough-hewn three-part harmony vocals and a piano-ukulele-bass-and-drums rhythm section that swings along in a variety of textures. Their debut recording as a group, "Casey MacGill's Blue 4 Trio", features 10 trio tracks and 2 quartet tracks. Says Casey: "My other projects were like oil paintings, constantly being tweaked and refined. The Blue 4 Trio CD is my watercolor, I put the paint on and what you get is what you get." The result is soft, loud, happy, sad, raw, mellow, with an honest mistake or two thrown in for good measure. It is a real band playing real music.
