Ralph Tufo and the Squeezebox Stompers

“Even in staid New England, every day is Mardi Gras with the Squeezebox Stompers. Wherever they go, they bring the party with their mix of Zydeco, Cajun, blues and good ol’ roadhouse rock ‘n roll.  Whether you’re a dancer or just a toe tapper, the Stompers will get your blood boiling and put a smile on your face at the same time. Led by Rockin’ Ralph Tufo, formerly of the award-winning Boogaloo Swamis, the Stompers feature musicians who have decades of experience playing the roots and branches of American music. Guitarist Larry Plitt was the winner of the 2007 Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest…”

“How much fun is attending a Squeezebox Stompers show? I dare to say it’s so much fun that the band should be banned in Boston and made illegal.  Nawwwwww… then we wouldn’t get to listen to their rollicking tunes and do the two-step and twirl around like we were all born on the bayou.”
-Kathy Sands-Boehmer, Me & Thee Coffeehouse Blogspot

“Listening to the Squeezebox Stompers is like taking a walk through the streets of the French Quarter.  The Stompers keep the dance floor busy with their trademark Louisiana sound.”
-Brett Cromwell , Lowell Sun

“ The band ranges through styles, writers and performances that will leave your head spinning in the most delicious way…”
-Rambles Magazine
