Taste Edmonds featured bands: The Little Lies, Queen Mother

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 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 of the six bands we’ll be featuring prior to opening day:

The Little Lies 

The Little Lies Band

The Little Lies, a Tribute to Fleetwood Mac, is comprised of Nik Singleton, Andrew Vait (SISTERS, Little Wins), Linzy Collins (Dream Patrol), Harry Wirth III (Hit Explosion), and Andy King (Reader, Spirit Award). They play renditions of the entire cannon one would expect to hear at a Fleetwood Mac concert, inspired by the band’s distinct artistic finesse and on-stage flair and style. This dynamic supergroup of accomplished Seattle-area musicians is an act you don’t want to miss.

Queen Mother

Queen Mother at Music at the Marina in Everett Aug. 12.

Hailing from Seattle, Queen Mother harnesses the Northwest’s best talent to bring Queen’s epic songs to life, including Under Pressure, We Are the Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody, and many more. With each show, they make the whole room a stage, hoping to draw out your inner “Freddie.”

And a reminder of the details:
