Frank Wallace, owner of the legendary (and much missed) Wallace's Tavern, has passed away at 81. Wallace's was a cornerstone of live rock, jazz and blues in North Jersey for many years. I can't begin to count how many gigs that I played in the place. I saw people like Billy Hart and John Scofield play there, as well as every local group of any stature at all. Frank was an extremely nice man, who will be sorely missed by a lot of us Jersey guys. (and girls!) RIP, Frank, and thanks for the good times.

I used to play there years ago. They supported origional jazz music. Tha was a cool place. A nice guy, I think his name was Mikey, used to book it.
