When Aztec Two-Step burst upon the scene in 1972 with their Elektra Records debut, 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, Rex & Neal were recognized for helping to usher the folk-rock music of the 1960’s into the 70’s and beyond, and with their own intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar, and inspiring harmonies, they are still 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. In this special evening, they will honor the pure poetry of the legendary Simon & Garfunkel and the seminal songs and harmonies of the remarkable Everly Brothers. And as the other “classic duo,” they’ll perform their own fan favorites as well.
