    As a resident of Brooklyn, NY, Stacy Dillard has played with drummer Winard Harper, Cindy Blackmon, Lenny White, Norman Simmons, Frank Lacy, Wycliffe Gordon, Eric Reed, Roy Hargrove, and the Mingus Big Band and a host of other jazz artists. Dillard has also worked in different genres of music with artists like Shirley Ceasar, Stephanie Mills, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, and more.

    Originally from Muskegon Heights, Michigan, Dillard performs and hosts a popular weekly gig and jam session at the famous Smalls Jazz Club in Greenwich Village. Because of his command of the saxophone, accessibility, and gracious spirit, he has become one of the most beloved, respected, and popular musicians in NY and of his generation.

    His Saturday night performances/jam sessions have become legendary, as musicians from famous to up-and-coming hang out to be a part of that scene.
