Stacy Dillard of Muskegon Heights, Michigan, attended college at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio to study music with Dr. William Denza. Very quickly, Dillard acquired the necessary knowledge that would soon spread his name through out the local music scene. After a fated run-in with Wynton Marsalis in Dayton, Ohio, Stacy would turn his attention to the New York Scene.

“Hey man, this (censored) can play. This (censored) can PLAY!” Wynton Marsalis

Stacy has caught the attention of many with his large and rich tone, developed ideas, accurate technique, work ethic and patience. Dillard has played with Winard Harper, Cindy Blackman, Lenny White, Frank Lacy, Wycliffe Gordon, Eric Reed, Roy Hargrove, Stephon Harris, Terrell Stafford, Herlin Riley, John Hicks, Frank Wess, Mulgrew Miller, Clark Terry, Victor Lewis, Steve Wilson, Johnny O’neal, Antonio Hart, Russell Malone, Lewis Nash, Mark Whitfield, the Mingus Big Band, and a host of others in different genres of music, including Stevie Wonder, U2, Shirley Ceasar, Alex Bugnon, Stephanie Mills, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, and more.

Stacy Dillard is the perfect example of fusing tradition and innovation. The combination of organic energy and authenticity is why Stacy leads the jazz scene today.

“Stacy is a one-of-a-kind musician. Seriously.” Roy Hargrove
