Bad Luck is a 10-year collaboration between Seattle-based musicians Chris Icasiano on drums and Neil Welch on saxophone/electronics. With four albums under their belt, Bad Luck has created an incredibly diverse array of music — no small feat in the heavily trodden world of drum/saxophone duos. Their melodies, improvisations and compositions are constructed from the ground up, creating a band sound much larger than the sum of its parts. Icasiano and Welch began their collaboration as students at the University of Washington.

Bad Luck formed out of late night drum and saxophone marathon sessions exploring Coltrane/Rashied Ali style duos and jazz standards. It was after adding live electronics that the unique sound profile of Bad Luck began to take shape. They were named the “Outside Jazz Group of 2011” by Earshot Jazz Magazine, and their album Two was named “Album of the Year 2012” by the New York Jazz Review

They are Table & Chairs Music recording artists with 4 albums to their credit: Bad Luck (2009), Two (2010) the Bloodroot EP (2012), and Three (2014).

Welch and Icasiano are founding members of the famed Racer Sessions avant-garde performance series which takes place each week in Seattle. They are also founding members of the cutting-edge record label Table & Chairs Music, which operates as a not-for-profit record label that gives 100% of its proceed to artists.

Bad Luck tours extensively, having shared the stage with local bands throughout the US as well as major figures in improvised music such as the saxophone legend Roscoe Mitchell, and performers Cuong Vu, Andrew D’Angelo, Wayne Horvitz, Dave King (The Bad Plus) and Chris Speed.

Aunt Kackle and the Coleslaw King – this image pretty much sums it up!

<p>The result is a duo that is drags rhythm through the mud in unimaginably glorious ways.</p>
