Ben “Lovey” Dorcy is the world’s “oldest roadie” and an icon in Texas Music folklore.  He’s assisted Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, John Wayne, Buck Owens and closer to home Pat Green, Randy Rogers Band, Cory Morrow and Josh Abbott Band.  There isn’t much Lovey hasn’t seen, done or helped make happen.  With that in mind, his friends have decided to show him the love this Wednesday at Floore’s Country Store in Helotes.  Come celebrate the man and the music he’s supported for all these years.

I’ll leave you with this excerpt about Lovey from Willie’s book The Facts of Life and Other Dirty Jokes

“Ben Dorcy, the world’s oldest band boy, was with us this trip.   Hes one hard-working man.  I told him tonight that he was insured by the company I’ve formed, with a two-dollar deductible.  He wants a fifty-dollar deductible.

We said, “Only if you pay the fifty up front.  We take no chances.”

Ben said, “Okay, it sounded like a better policy.”

One time, when Ben was working in Nashville, he was walking in front of the Ryman Auditorium wearing a Nudie suite given to him by Hank Thompson.  Somebody thought Ben was a star, and came up to him and said, “How do you get started in this business?”

Ben said, “There ain’t but one way, hoss.  You start at the bottom and go right to the top.  Don’t mess with that in-between-sh*t.”
