The story of Aztec Two-Step is intertwined with the history of folk-rock music in America, originating from a chance meeting at an open mic night in a Boston folk club in 1971. In 1972, Aztec Two-Step, whose name comes from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, burst upon the scene with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records. Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman went on to spend a lifetime making music together.
Now, after 47 years of touring, Neal will be taking an indefinite period of time off after the passing of his beloved wife Karen, and Rex welcomes to the Aztec Two-Step stage the incomparable Steven “Muddy” Roues (Roues Brothers, Jon Pousette-Dart) on upright bass, blues harp and vocals, and Broadway’s Dodie Pettit (original cast member of “Phantom of the Opera”; “CATS”) on vocals, guitars and keyboards.
Join Rex, Dodie and Muddy as they perform all the ATS fan favorites – old and new!
