The Whitlows are Edmonton’s most lovable acoustic duo. Married to music, and to each other, Joe and Ariana perform your favourite tunes and share hilarious stories about their hectic life with 3 spirited young children. Their pandemic-inspired living room livestreams, #FriyayWithTheWhitlows, quickly became a favourite source of lockdown entertainment featuring interactive games, amusing themes and comical costumes (like that time Joe painted himself blue to be Aladdin’s genie!). Their popular “Campfire Concert” series brought the show to local neighbourhoods, where they performed safe, lively street concerts by firelight. Catch them this summer performing live from your street with The Whitlow’s “Singing Lemonade Stand”.

Hi, I’m Danica the DJ! After thirteen years of studying classical voice/piano and a lifetime of appreciation, listening to and creating music has always been my jam. Mixtapes have always been a part of my life. It all started with home taping the radio, then burning and writing on CDs, and now the jump to digital has made my personal soundtracks bigger than ever. While working on degrees in history and psychology I picked up DJing on the weekends and for the last eight years it’s been my livelihood! Alberta born and bred, I now live in Edmonton with my partner, my pug, and whichever dogs we are sitting that week.
