Led by accordionist Rockin’ Ralph Tufo, formerly of the award-winning Boogaloo Swamis, The Squeezebox 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. Geoff Wadsworth on saxophone, harmonica, and tin whistle is a veteran of the Boston jazz and blues scene. Andy Solberg, versed in jazz, folk, and blues drives the band with his scintillating bass lines. Mike Migliozzi on drums is a master of Cajun, Zydeco, and New Orlean rhythms. Finally, Steve Latanision a virtuoso on fiddle, mandolin, and banjo adds an eclectic roots dimension to the band.
We’re pleased to announce that the band has been nominated for the Best Cajun Album (Roots and Branches) by the 2017 Just Plain Folks Music Awards. Also two songs from the CD are being considered for the Best Cajun Songs (“Caribe Zydeco and “Crawfish Two-Step”).
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. – Brett Cromwell , Lowell Sun
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. – Rambles Magazine
