Taste Edmonds featured bands: Motley 2 and Eden

Motley 2

This year’s Taste Edmonds — set to open Friday, Aug. 19 — brings back such crowd favorites as The Beatniks, One Love Bridge, The Davanos and Robbie Dee’s Tribute to Elvis. But Taste organizers say they are also excited to introduce some fresh bands to the lineup, including some newly formed groups that are already making a big splash in the Pacific Northwest:

Here are two more of the six bands we’ll be featuring prior to opening day:

Motley 2 

Based in Los Angeles, Motley 2 is the premiere, internationally touring tribute to Motley Crue that captures the entire look, feel and sound that hard core Crue fans know and love. They have toured extensively across the nation and abroad, and have performed at casinos, bars, clubs, festivals, state fairs, concerts in the parks, and corporate events.



Eden is a newly established blues/rock/pop band in the Pacific Northwest.

This group consists of the members of the band Shaggy Sweet; Aaron, Jason, and Ethan —  joined by the talented lead vocals of Savanna Woods, recent top 20 artist on NBC’s The Voice.

And a reminder of the details:
