The Stolen Sweets are an American Jazz[3][1] group from Portland, Oregon.[1][2] Formed in 2005, the group comprises vocalists Jen Bernard, Lara Michell and Erin Sutherland, Pete Krebs and David Langenes on guitar, and Keith Brush on double bass.[2] They have released two albums so far: Shuffle Off to Buffalo (2006) and Sleepytime in Chinatown (2009).[3][6][7]

The band have stated that they formed with the intention of emulating 1920s–1930s vocal jazz group The Boswell Sisters.[2][8] As well as detecting influences from The Boswell Sisters, reviewers have also compared the band to Cab Calloway and Django Reinhardt.[9][7]

Reviews of the band have been positive. OPB's show Oregon Art Beat praised the band's "high-energy shows" and "seamless harmonies".[8] In a review of their album Sleepytime in Chinatown, the Jazz Society of Oregon praised its "impeccable harmonies" and "retro sound".[9]
