Strand Presents Aztec Two Step As Part Of Backstage Pass Series


(Lakewood, NJ) – The historic STRAND Center for the Arts presents Aztec Two-Step – Backstage Pass on Friday, March 11 at 8pm. Aztec Two-Step continues to impress audiences with intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar, and inspiring harmonies. They are one of acoustic music's most popular and enduring acts. In 1972, Aztec Two-Step burst upon the scene with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records. Since then Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime making music together as the folk/rock duo Aztec Two-Step. Their first album, along with their subsequent albums for RCA Records were staples of progressive FM and college radio and helped to bring the music of the 1960s into the 70s.

In 1987, Living in America, received the New York Music Award for Best Folk Album and was named in Billboard's year-end critic's poll. They have been praised in countless major US newspapers and magazines, including Rolling Stone, and have appeared on numerous TV and radio shows, such as the David Letterman Show, the King Biscuit Flour Hour, and World Café Live. In 1999 they were the subjects of the documentary, No Hit Wonder, which was aired on PBS.
