About

Born and raised in England, T.J. first began performing with his family jazz band. Finding work with local groups in the north of England and touring with Newcastle based group Rob Heron and The Tea-Pad Orchestra landed T.J. a contract playing trumpet with St. Louis Americana band, Pokey Lafarge.


As a trumpet player T.J. Muller toured worldwide with Pokey Lafarge for 3 years, performing classic styles of American music and making tv and radio appearances including, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Grand Ole Opry, A Prairie Home Companion, and PBS Documentary: American Epic. Most recently, in 2023, he appeared alongside a group of fellow musicians in Martin Scorsese’s film adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon.


After working with the Pokey Lafarge band T.J. settled in St. Louis full time, establishing The Arcadia Dance Orchestra and The Gaslight Squares Jazz Band. T.J. turned his focus to historic St. Louis jazz, ragtime and blues, performing and speaking around St. Louis and hosting a weekly jazz and ragtime radio show on Classic 107.3FM.


T.J. Muller is known for his charismatic approach to early jazz, energetic performances and passion for sharing the stories and history behind the music.
