Wally’s is named for Joseph L. Walcott who immigrated here from Barbados and opened the establishment in 1947. Forever a family operated business, Wally’s was a huge part of the local jazz scene which at that time centered around the area of Mass and Columbus Aves. in Boston’s South End. Even though he was surrounded by the city’s top jazz clubs Mr. Walcott managed to beat out the competition with his knack for recruiting the best musicians who in turn attracted the biggest crowds. He also had a very high respect for up and coming talent, and thus provided regular opportunities for students from the top local music schools to perform on his stage amongst the professionals. What a great move on his part! We all know the entertainment value of these hidden gems yet to be discovered. To this very day, Wally’s Cafe still continues to carry-on this rich musical tradition and you can rest assured that if you’ve come for an evening of great Latin jazz entertainment, you will not walk away disappointed.
