For every mood


The Advocats Big Band, originally assembled in 1991 by a group of young lawyers to perform at a Toronto fundraiser, includes many top professional musicians and music educators whose collective experience range from studio, theatre, film and television work to major symphony orchestra, night club and chamber music. The Advocats have played at many venues throughout Toronto: The Old Mill, The Rex Hotel, the Beaches International Jazz Festival, Eat to the Beat, the Silver Ball, the Sunday Concert Series at the Scarborough Civic Centre and the Sunday Serenades at Mel Lastman Square, to name a few. For 16 years, we have performed on the first Monday of every month, originally at the Chick'n'deli (Seven44 Restaurant & Lounge), and in recent years at The Duke Live. Our repertoire includes big band classics played by the likes of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and music from modern talents like Michael Bublé, the New York Voices, and Norah Jones. Believe us, the list goes on! We are so thankful for our ever-growing following of loyal listeners in Toronto and beyond... Check out our website:
