Aztec Twostep

Aztec Two Step


Rex Fowler from Pittsfield, Maine and Neal Shulman of New York City met one "open mike" night at a Boston folk club in the spring of 1971. Each impressed by the otherÕs talents, they joined forces and Aztec Two-Step (named for a line from " Coney Island of the Mind" by Beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti) was born. After thirty plus years as a staple of FM radio, Major label recording contracts and world-wide touring, Rex and Neal have become one of folk musics most popular and enduring acts. They continue to wow audiences with intelligent songwriting..,hot acoustic lead gutiar.., and great harmonies. Headliners in their own right, Aztec Two-Step has also appeared in concert with such notable artists as Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Talking Heads, Bill Cosby, The Beach Boys, Jackson Browne, Bette Midler, Heart and many more. They continue to tour, pleasing old fans and winning new ones. " I've also always believed that you have to have a touch of madness to create any art, and the music that Neal and Rex make together is beautiful. It has depth; and sometimes they get this spooky quality that really reaches me. That's the crux of the matter, their music reaches me. ~ David Bromberg
