Music has long been a positive force in Jeff Wallace’s life. The day he received his first Beatles record, the sounds and smells of his early concerts, and the thrill of buying a set of Technics 1200 turntables are all memories he savors. From interviewing his idols to organizing festivals for thousands of people to DJing at clubs, bars, and even some “cool” weddings, Jeff (aka DJ J-Wall) lives for musical experiences.
The move from journalist/blogger to event producer to open-format DJ was a natural progression for J-Wall. Music has always been at the center. His love for classic rock, old school hip hop beats, and funk has expanded into a boundless quest to mix almost every genre, often in the same night, and with the fun challenge to keep the flow as seamless as possible.
J-Wall holds down a Thursday-night residency at The Druid (Cambridge, MA), now entering its sixth year, and spins regular nights at the Milky Way/Bella Luna, Middlesex Lounge, A4cade, Alibi, Carrie Nation, and Good Life. He has rocked parties at legendary clubs such as The Paradise Rock Club, the Sinclair, Royale, and The Wood Tavern (Miami). He is also in high-demand for corporate events, outdoor festivals, and private parties: including the Jameson Bartenders Ball (2015, 2016, 2017), Boston Magazine’s BestFest (2017, 2018), the Thirst Boston Blender Bender (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019), The Boston Marathon Expo (2019), The Taste of WGBH Food & Wine Fest (2019), BMC’s Catwalk for a Cure, and hundreds more.
DJ J-Wall lives for gigs in alternative venues that aren’t obvious DJ spots. The most rewarding gigs can be the most unlikely ones.
Boston is a rich music town with many unique venues that encourage you to yourself. With that attitude in mind, J-Wall curates the music program and books the DJs at Brass Union, a cool restaurant/lounge concept in Somerville, MA. In that role, he has worked alongside dozens of highly respected DJs, many of which have helped him to expand his own chops and build upon his musical IQ.
The way people react to music is always evolving, and that’s what motivates DJ J-Wall to keep digging for that perfect music-driven experience.
