Performing Classic American Duos
Friday, April 19 at 8pm, Black Box Theatre, Tickets: $30 ($35 at the door)
Don’t miss this special evening with AZTEC TWO-STEP performing the Songs of Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, plus their own Fan Favorites. When Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman of the critically acclaimed duo Aztec Two-Step burst upon the scene on Elektra Records in 1972, they were often reviewed as having the “east coast sensibility,” “intellectual lyricism” and “ethereal harmonies” of their legendary predecessors, Simon & Garfunkel. As staples of progressive FM and college radio and recognized for helping to usher the folk/rock music of the 1960′s into the 70′s and beyond, Aztec Two-Step continues to be one of acoustic music’s most respected and enduring acts.
Possessing a rich musical legacy of their own, few groups, if any, are more qualified to interpret and perform the timeless songs and harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers than Aztec Two-Step. Throw in ATS’s engaging stage presence, their original soaring harmonies and Neal’s dazzling lead guitar, and you have so much more than a typical tribute show. In this memorable evening, Rex and Neal honor the pure poetry of the legendary Simon & Garfunkel and the influential songs and harmonies of the remarkable Everly Brothers. And just for fun, they perform fan favorites of another famous duo that helped make their generation’s musical memories: Aztec Two-Step!
“Cult folk-rockers can still carry off their sweet, supple harmonies and bouncy acoustic pop with aplomb. Recommended.”
