    Wally's Stepchildren is a funk/fusion band that has had rotating musicians at Wally's for almost 15 years. Some past notable members of this night include drummers John Blackwell (Prince), Adam Deitch (Justin Timberlake), Nikki Glaspie (Beyoncé), and John Roberts (Janet Jackson); guitarist Eric Krasno (Soulive); and keyboardist Rob Lewis (Puff Daddy). Wally's Cafe was established on January 1, 1947 in Boston. The nightclub is located at the famed intersection of Massachusetts and Columbus avenues. The area was once home to many renowned jazz clubs during the 1940s and 1950s—places with names like the High Hat, Savoy Ballroom, Chicken Lane, the Wig Wam, Big M, and Wally's Paradise—that played a major role introducing jazz to the New England community. Wally's Café now features live music 365 days a year. Many of the musicians are professionals, but Wally's still maintains its tradition of providing students of academic institutions such as Berklee, the Boston Conservatory, and the New England Conservatory of Music with a stage to perfect their craft.
