Join us Friday through Saturday, August 9 to 11 for 3 stages of entertainment at A Taste of Edmonds. There is something in every musical flavor and all the bands plan a tribute song to the King of rock and roll.

Taste Beer StageThe Atomic Punks, Motley Inc., the Spazmatics, the Afrodisiacs, Cherry Cherry, Shambala, The Beatniks, Gimme Shelter — the list goes on when it comes to tribute bands bringing back your favorites. You will shake, rattle and roll to the sounds of Bobby Sox & the Juke Box as they take fans back to the 50s and 60s.

Local favorites Heart By Heart will be closing out the festival Sunday evening. Two of their members recently were inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as original members of Heart. Also, becoming a local legend, Spike & the Impalers will turn up the volume on Friday at the Beer Garden. If you don’t know the band, you might know two of its members — Bob Rivers and Spike O’Neil from the Bob Rivers Show that airs in the morning on 95.7 KJR.

Blues fans won’t want to miss Michelle Taylor & The Blues Junkies. Bluegrass fans will want to catch the Oly Mountain Boys. For hot Zydeco and Cajun be sure to hear Richard Allen & the Louisiana Experience.

The band schedules on the website list all the times, including four tributes to Elvis. Although you will want to tap your feet be cautious if you have a plate of delicious food on your lap!
