Neal has retired but Rex & company carry the ATS 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 wholeheartedly agreed that the ATS legacy should be carried forward into a new era. Rex, his new wife Dodie Pettit, and Steven “Muddy” Roues are embracing the Aztec Two-Step catalog in a way that’s often reminiscent of the early ATS live and studio arrangements. With a busy touring schedule, the reviews have been overwhelmingly enthusiastic:

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