Ben Dorsey, known as the the World’s Oldest Roadie, or maybe the World’s First Roadie, will be honored once again by musicians and friends next February.   Profits raised help support Ben, in his 90’s, who has been in the entertainment business on on the road for over 67 years.  He has worked with Willie Nelson & Family,  John Wayne, Waylon Jennings, , Johnny Cash,  Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline and many more.  Ben still  works with several bands including Randy Rogers, Wade Bowen, Cody Canada, Kevin Fowler, Cory Morrow, and Willie Nelson.


Presumably at a 4th of July Picnic in the 1970's...Ben Dorcy, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Margot Kidder, and Bee Spears.

Ben met Willie Nelson in the early 1960’s when they were both working for Ray Price.  Ben was the roadie, and Willie was the bass player.  When Willie took his own show on the road, he hired Ben, who was already legendary for his ability to get the job done, despite obstacles and perceived impossibilities.
