Anyone who knows music and Boston knows Wally’s Jazz Club. Opened by Barbados-born Joseph ‘Wally’ Walcott in 1947, the club was a place for Black folks to enjoy music in the segregated city. Since its opening, the club has gone on to play live music 365 nights a year with its doors open to any and all. The spirit of inclusivity at the heart of the club has made it a beloved place in Boston for decades, treating everyone who crosses the threshold into the club with respect and care, allowing them to immerse themselves into the music rather than worry about their safety. And they are lucky for it– the club has hosted jazz greats, and greats-in-the-making, making it a major part of jazz history in Boston and Beyond. The club is now run by Ms. Elynor Walcott and her three sons Frank, Paul, and Lloyd Poindexter, all of whom show a penchant for hard work and a love of music and community.
