This 17-piece ensemble featuring vocalist Nina Richmond is one of Toronto/s leading bands which has a rich history spanning over two decades. The Advocats started as a group of lawyers playing a charity fundraiser, and has evolved into a much sought after band that regularly plays at various venues and events. The current line-up still includes a few who have not let go of their day-jobs as lawyers, as well as some of the city’s top horn and rhythm players. Check out the Advocats Big Band!
