Focal Point 3rd Annual Traditional Jazz Series: The Arcadia Dance Orchestra (Night 1 Seated Show)

The Arcadia Dance Orchestra (TADO) is an eleven-piece jazz band which performs the music of the 1920s-30s. Led by local bandleader and multi-instrumentalist T.J. Muller, TADO was formed in early 2017. The group consists of many young talented musicians, enthusiastic about re-creating the wonderful music of the jazz age on an array of instruments including piano, a full authentic 1920s drum set, reeds from soprano to bass sax, trumpets, trombones, violin, banjo, and more. On an average gig the band will play a mixture of familiar 1920s tunes transcribed from records, such as East St. Louis Toodle-oo by Duke Ellington, as well as performing period stock arrangements of the era, such as you might have heard in dance halls of the time. TADO also performs original arrangements of 1920/ 30s classics, and proudly performs St. Louis arrangements, taken from 78RPM records of 1920s bands recorded right here in St. Louis almost 100 years ago.
