Began playing together in ’70s
Bursting on the scene in 1972 with their self-titled debut on Elektra Records, Aztec Two-Step’s first album and three subsequent albums for RCA Records were staples of progressive FM and college radio.
The band, consisting of Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman, takes its name from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
The two have now performed together for more than four decades, releasing 10 albums and performing many thousands of shows.
Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center
Aztec Two-Step has appeared on “The David Letterman Show” and performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. In 1999, they were the subject of the PBS-TV documentary “No Hit Wonder.”
Richard Cuccaro, publisher of the music magazine Acoustic Live, called Aztec Two-Step “possibly the best acoustic duo in the world today” while Variety stated the band offers “beautiful acoustic guitar playing and questioning lyrics.''
