AV & The Inner City

“AV & the Inner City” is a group that formed during the course of the COVID19 pandemic and opioid crisis pandemic in the inner city of Edmonton, Canada.   The group is made up of 6 singers: band leader and multi award-winning singer-songwriter AV (Ann Vriend), Debbie Houle (co-founder of the Juno-nominated international touring Indigenous a cappella group “Asani”), jazz radio host, jazz singer, and professional pickle company owner Johanna Alleyne (company: Mojojojo Pickles and Preserves); Crystal Eyo, lead singer and songwriter of Edmonton pop/RnB band “Mercy Funk”, Alenka Lundell, who fronted and songwrote for bands in her home country of Czech (formerly Czechoslovakia); and experienced marching band and choral singer, Jenn Dahlen. 

Since then “AV & the Inner City” has been invited to perform at the Calgary International Blues Festival, the Toronto Blues Summit, the pandemic versions of the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and Jubilee Auditorium Outdoor Concert Series’, the Taste of Edmonton Festival, the Sasquatch Gathering Festival, and many other concerts around Alberta— and they are just getting started!
