Wally's is for the kids

America is the birth place of Jazz and the music will only continue if we provide young musicians a place to perform and perfect their craft.

Book a Wally's Band

Wally's Café is among the oldest family owned and operated jazz clubs in existence. 
It was founded in 1947 by Mr. Joseph L. Walcott.  We feature live music 365 days a year.  Wally's is fortunate to be surrounded by some of the nations most acclaimed institutions for educating musicians.  The bands featured nightly at the club are made up of musicians from these institutions, practicing and perfecting their craft.  Many of these young aspiring musicians are considered by some to be among the most talented in the nation.  This is why Wally's is considered the "Training Ground".  The number of celebrated musicians who have used our stage in the process of perfecting their art is long.  For over half a century we have consistently maintained a dedication to providing a forum for musicians to perform, and for the community to hear music.  We continue to forge ahead in this endeavor.
