“The old songs done in this new lineup brought new life to the music. This truly is a band that people need to experience!!” – Ron Olesko, WFDU-fm and Hurdy Gurdy Folk Club, Fair Lawn NJ
Originating from a chance meeting at a Boston folk club open mic night in 1971, Rex Fowler & Neal Shulman burst on the scene as Aztec Two-Step in ’72 with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records. This first album and their three subsequent albums for RCA Records made the duo staples of progressive FM and college radio, helping to usher the folk-rock music of the 1960s into the 1970s and beyond. Rex and Neal went on to spend a lifetime of making music together, building a loyal fan base over the years.
But it’s a new and exciting era for Aztec Two-Step!…
Following Neal’s 2018 retirement, original founding member, principal singer and songwriter Rex has continued on with their captivating songs (including some of Neal’s originals), expanding the band’s musical legacy with his new ensemble Aztec Two-Step 2.0. With 2 and 3-part harmonies, multi-instrumental arrangements and Dodie’s dazzling guitar work, they’ve recaptured the feeling of Rex & Neal’s original studio recordings, at the same time putting a fresh spin on it. Aztec Two-Step 2.0 performs favorite ATS classics as well as old forgotten gems, with the stage patter still as engaging, fun, and poignant as ever.
