Aztec Two-Step featuring Rex Fowler and Friends
Happy Halloween Show!
Come celebrate Halloween with Aztec Two-Step featuring Rex & Friends. Costumes are optional, but encouraged!
The story of 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 a Boston folk club in 1971. Taking their band’s name from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, ATS burst on the scene in 1972 with their self-titled debut album on Elektra Records, and Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman went on to spend a lifetime making music together. 

Now, after 47 years of touring, Neal has taken himself off the road following the passing of his beloved wife Karen. With his love and encouragement, the ATS legacy continues as Rex welcomes to the Aztec Two-Step stage the incomparable Steven “Muddy” Roues on upright bass, blues harp and vocals (Roues Brothers, Jon Pousette-Dart); and on guitars, keyboards and vocals, Dodie Pettit (original cast member of Broadway’s “Phantom of the Opera”; “CATS”; and session player on Aztec’s “Times of Our Lives”).

After 47 years of magic between Rex & Neal, Rex’s new trio carries on, to rousing fan reviews:
“Saw the new collaboration at the Nelson Odeon and loved the show…”
“I saw the “new ATS” at City Winery in D.C. last month. It was a great show. Will always miss Neal, but the new configuration maintains the integrity of the ATS music that fans love and also brings in some new directions. Will be fun to see how they evolve.”
“Amazing show at the Courthouse. Classic Aztec with a twist. Go see Rex, Dodie and Muddy. You won’t be disappointed!”

Joel Brown and Dave Maswick

$12

The recent, digital-only releases of the singles "More Or Less" and "In the Time It Took" feature the collaborative talents of two of the country's  finest musicians, Joel Brown and Dave Maswick. Their live, duo performances feature beautifully arranged harmony singing over lush acoustic accompaniment highlighted by intricate, fingerpicked guitar work. Their expressive lead and solo vocals serve as perfect vehicles for their hook-laden, modern folk/pop and contemporary acoustic original songs. As a classical guitarist, Joel Brown, has traveled worldwide appearing in the Czech republic, in Asia with the Singapore Chinese Orchestra and in the U.S. at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. His varied talents aren’t limited to classical music though. Brown is also a member of the touring group Triple Play, a border-crossing trio blending jazz with blues and folk, including members Chris Brubeck and harmonica legend Peter Madcat Ruth. Between tour dates he can be found at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs as an Artist-in-Residence. As a member of the ‘80’s group Blotto, you may have seen Dave Maswick in the video for the hit song "I Wanna Be a Lifeguard" (on MTV’s very first day on the air), the cult classic horror film “Basket Case” or later on NBC's Today Show. Dave has continued to produce, write, perform and work with with many of the finest musicians in the U.S. and Europe on music and film projects too numerous to mention, all the while continuing his long association as a charter member of seminal country metal bluegrass proponents, the Stony Creek Band.

Comedy Night featuring Jay Lafarr

Comedy Night featuring Jay Lafarr

https://www.brownpapertickets.com/user/eventreports.html?events=3567885.

The Strand Theater is bringing the laughs on Friday, August 3rd at 8pm. Hosted by Comedy Works Regular Grady Dixon, you will see three unique acts to tickle your funny bones.

Jaye McBride is funny, smart and proudly transgender. Jaye has traveled the world performing stand-up comedy both as a headliner and sharing the stage with comedy greats like Aziz Ansari, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton & Bobcat Goldthwait. Jaye has also been a part of The Boston Comedy Festival, The Maine Comedy Festival, and the She Devil Comedy Festival. In addition to stand-up, Jaye has written, produced and acted in a variety of short films. When not performing on-stage or on-screen Jaye writes "The Comedy Blog" for the Times Union and speaks at colleges all across the country with her lecture about being transgender. Having transitioned in 2007, Jaye is uniquely qualified to talk about awkward first dates, strained family relationships and self-acceptance.
Jaye is originally from Upstate NY but now calls Brooklyn her home.

Rich Williams is a must see act.
Headlining Comedian nominated for two Emmys. Appeared on Comedy Central, Chelsea Lately, Punk'd, The Best Damn Sports Show Period, HBO Aspen Comedy Fest, and The Howard Stern Show. Wrote for numerous tv shows on MTV, Fox, Fox Sports and E!
A cerebral comic who delves into taboo subjects with the deft skill of a seasoned pro. It's amazing to watch him work.

From the small upstate town of Fort Edward, Jay LaFarr was raised in a home that fostered his love of America and massive, crippling guilt and self doubt. This comes through in his standup comedy, which is funny, honest and at times disturbing. Performing over 300 sets a year for the last decade and with material that can be relatable to most any of us. A writer for children's shows and a staple of the Texas film scene, you may have seen him on Amazon Prime or Netflix, but most likely in one of the dozens of venues he performs at every year. He regularly performs with the comedians of Humor for Heroes, a non profit that raises money for various US veteran's groups.
