The Belleville Outfit / Press

“In some ideal parallel universe Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli traveled through time to Ft. Worth, TX, and joined the band of the Belleville Outfit to cut the album Time to Stand.”

““It can catch you in a funny way, like a rainy day or a ricochet,” songwriter and guitarist Robert Teter sings on the latter. “And leave you fallen on your face or blind. All I need is solid ground, but all I see is sand around.” Peel that imagery straight off John Hiatt’s back porch.”

“The Belleville Outfit has become a well-oiled machine whose live shows can awe with extraordinary talent and unlimited musicality”

“This title tune to the record is a sprightly bopper sprinkled with fiddle, piano and electric guitar notes that make you smile. These kids are the BOMB.”

"Mix hot-saucy Texas honky-tonk, city-slicker indie-pop, jam-grass mischief, cool jazz, and big-band swing - and you've about half-described this hot Austin band."

The Boston Globe

““The Belleville Outfit takes pieces of gypsy swing, classic jazz, big band and Americana and stitches them together into an improvisational quilt of musical idiosyncrasy.”

Eileen McClelland - The Houston Chronicle

“Somehow it all makes sense in the capable hands of this young band whose members draw on influences as diverse as their hometowns.””

Eileen McClelland - The Houston Chronicle

"A catchy, broad-minded, light-stepping blend of gypsy swing, bluegrass, ragtime blues, and country-folk that effervesces more than a shaken Coke can."

Chris Parker - San Antonio Current
