Doty & Dexter


Stacy Doty has been a musician most of his life. His parents were both musicians and he learned to play guitar from his dad, when he was 11 years old. Playing guitar and singing soon became a passion. Stacy plays the guitar, mandolin and Native American flute.

As with many young musicians, several bands were formed over the years. Stacy went to Nashville, TN in the mid 80s to attempt a solo career. He was assigned to AMI Productions and had limited radio airplay in the USA and Europe. 

Stacy's former bands have been the long running Whiskey Jack and Pearl Handle Band. He was also a member the Sawyer Brothers Band for 10 years. All three of those bands played throughout Illinois and Indiana. He toured extensively with Nancy Hays which helped familiarize Stacy with performing in larger venues and as a part of her band, he has opened for many top recording artists such as Glen Campbell, Ronnie Milsap, Bellamy Brothers, and many more. In more recent years, Pearl Handle Band has backed two Patsy Cline tribute artists, most recently Mary Pfeifer, in her Simply Patsy show. All together Stacy has over 50 years of live musical performance experience.

Joining Stacy at his show is Wendy Dexter. She does not have Stacy's experience with live performance, unless you count singing along with the car radio and singing to her pets over the years. But they discovered quite by accident that Wendy could sing harmony and thus Doty & Dexter was born.
