“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 injected into every genre from Cajun, Zydeco, Blues, to country. They are a refreshing change of pace in New England, a long way from the warm Bourbon Street vibe they lovingly conjure with every performance.”
Brett Cromwell, Lowell Sun
“As veteran performers for the past 25 years, various members of the band have distinguished themselves as music award winners: Ralph Tufo with 4 Boston Music Awards and Larry Plitt as the 2007 winner of the Boston Folk Festi-val Songwriting Contest.”
Winthrop Sun Transcript

Squeezebox Stompers, 2007
“Over the 13 tracks offered on this self-titled CD, the band ranges through styles, writers and performances that will leave your head spinning in the most delicious way... a feel good album that will raise the spirits.” –Rambles Magazine
Rockin’ Ralph’s Roadhouse, 2008
“Not only does this CD [Rockin' Ralph’s Roadhouse] swing and swamprock, but it was drawn from the Katrina disaster as a play emphasizing the New Orleans area's unique vibe and contribution to American culture —thus expect blues, zydeco, cajun, a bit of country, jigs, reels, jazz, and a smidge of rock & roll.
Roots and Branches, 2014
“Sincere in its reverence for the musical stylings, Roots and Branches is a solid outing that will beg repeated spins...The dozen compositions from Ralph Tufo, who also sings some lead vocals, grand piano and Cajun accordion, all crawl through the bayou but show different flavors and colors.
