Celebrating 40 Years Of Aztec Two-Step

The acoustic duo Aztec Two-Step has been making amazing music together since 1971. That’s when two individual singer songwriters, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman, joined forces after meeting in a coffee house in Boston. They took their name from a Lawrence Ferlinghetti poem and recorded
the first song ever written about Jack Kerouac’s iconic American novel, On The Road.

“If you cared about the music,” legendary DJ Pete Fornatale said in the documentary above, “you were always on the lookout for that fresh new sound… but that also had the potential to lunch new careers. And I always viewed the debut album by Aztec Two-Step as one of those records.”

To commemorate their 40th anniversary year, 2012 brings the official release of Fowler & Shulman’s studio CD Cause & Effect. Listen here.

And on January 10, join Aztec Two-Step with NY1’s Budd Mishkin at 92nd Street Y for conversation of their extraordinary career and friendship. Use discount code ACOUSTIC to receive 30% off the ticket price!

Good News And Bad News For Those Concerned With Weight Gain Over The Holidays

imageThere is good news and bad news for the 37% of you who cite weight gain as a top holiday pet peeve. A New England Journal of Medicine study [PDF] says that while the holiday weight gain typically does not exceed one pound, that one pound gained stays with you for the rest of the year! It’s as if it’s waiting to meet with next year’s holiday weight gain, which leaves researchers to conclude that holiday weight gain can be a long-term health issue.

We think the bad news gives you a good reason to visit the 92Y May Center Open House event on January 10. You can drop into our classes, see fitness demos, use our facilities, get free gifts, win prizes, and take advantage of our biggest membership discount of the year.
