Aztec Two-Step featuring Rex Fowler & Friends
Springfest2019-AZTEC-trio-2018.jpg

Neal has retired but Rex & company carry the Aztec Two-Step legacy forward!

Originating from a chance meeting in 1971 at a Boston coffeehouse open mic night, Aztec Two-Step burst on the scene in 1972 with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records. This and their three subsequent albums for RCA Records made the band staples of progressive FM radio and college radio, helping to usher the folk-rock music of the ‘60s into the 1970s and beyond. Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman went on to spend a lifetime making music together. After 47 years Neal has made the decision to retire following the passing of his wife, and he and Rex have agreed wholeheartedly that the ATS legacy should be carried forward into a new era.

Rex’s new Aztec Two-Step ensemble, which includes his new wife Dodie Pettit and Steven “Muddy” Roues, has embraced a busy touring schedule. They're performing ATS fan favorites and forgotten gems often reminiscent of Aztec’s original recordings, earning standing ovations and rousing reviews. And Rex’s band banter and stage patter is still as fun, warm and engaging as ever.

“Amazing show at Courthouse Arts…. Go see Rex, Dodie and Muddy. You won’t be disappointed!”
“The show with Rex and Friends in Sarasota was fantastic! - looking forward to seeing you again!”
“Great show at City Winery!!…. Rex’s new configuration maintains the integrity of the ATS music that fans love...”
