Aztec Two-Step 2.0 featuring Rex Fowler, Dodie Pettit & Friends
The story of Rex Fowler and 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 Boston in 1971, Rex and Neal Shulman went on to record four albums on Elektra & RCA Records. Performing worldwide, they were critically acclaimed in newspapers, reviewed in Rolling Stone Magazine, and appeared on radio and TV including The King Biscuit Flower Hour, World Cafe Live and David Letterman. They appeared in concert with The Band, Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Carly Simon, The Beach Boys and so many more, and have recently been inducted into the New England Music Hall of Fame, receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Following Neal's retirement, Rex has continued, expanding his legacy - and his band - alongside his wife Dodie Pettit - a singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and an original member of Broadway’s The Phantom of the Opera. Rex and Dodie first met during an ATS recording session in 1979 (she was on lead electric guitar and vocals) and re-connected decades later. With ATS 2.0 they have recaptured the multi-layered dimension of Rex & Neal’s original studio recordings, performing ATS classics and old forgotten gems.
“The old songs done in this new lineup has brought new life to the music. This truly is a band that people need to experience!!” - Ron Olesko, WFDU-FM/ Folk Music Notebook/ Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club
