Squeezebox Stompers
Friday Evening Coffeehouse
April 4, 2008
at 7 p.m.
Free and open to the public

Listening to the Squeezebox Stompers is like taking a virtual stroll through the streets of the French Quarter listening to the sounds of Cajun, Zydeco, Blues, and Swamp Pop Originals. It’s all very lively and danceable foot stompin’ music drawn from the traditions of American Roots Music.

The band plays a multitude of instruments including: piano and Cajun accordions, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, acoustic bass, triangle, rub-board, and drums, with the entire band singing lead and harmony vocals. The Squeezebox Stompers perform as a trio or a quintet depending upon the size and format of the venue. They have two releases- their self-titled trio CD and their upcoming new release “Rockin’ Ralph’s Roadhouse.” As veteran performers for the past 25 years, various members of the band have distinguished themselves as music award winners: Ralph Tufo has won 4 Boston Music Awards as a former member of the Boogaloo Swamis; Larry Plitt was the 2007 winner of the Boston Folk Festival Songwriting Contest.

For the past 4 years, the band has performed at Mardi Gras dance parties, Cajun dances, coffeehouse concerts, festivals, weddings, parties, and functions throughout New England. For more information, log on to squeezeboxstompers.com or contact ralphtufo@gmail.com (617)846-1835.
