Bad Touch

Bad Touch is a new music collective made up of alto saxophonist Loren Stillman, guitarist Nate Radley, organist Gary Versace and drummer Ted Poor. Originally formed under the highly unique, yet controversial name The Loren Stillman Quartet or The Loren Stillman Organ Project, Stillman relinquished control in 2007 when his band mates staged an uprising and voiced their interest in having a cooperative leadership role in the foursome.

Being the sociably minded person that he is, Stillman willingly ceded his responsibilities as band leader and became ecstatic in knowing that the risk of leading a band would now be dispersed amongst four rather than one. Bad Touch was formed under the �power in number�s principal,� �Many hands make light work,� they say, and so their goal is to share in all band responsibilities whether it financial, musical or organizational.

Each member of Bad Touch is free to contribute as much or as little as they�d like; this being the true definition of compromise and collectivity, which in this case is based on valued friendship, and love for music.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
