G&L Guitars News: Wanda Ortiz Set To Hit National TV With The Iron Maidens

Wanda Ortiz Set To Hit National TV With The Iron Maidens

There are a lot of "Tribute" bands out there these days but few have experienced the success that the all-female Iron Maiden tribute band, The Iron Maidens has. Formed in 2001, The Iron Maidens have quickly established themselves as one of southern California's most popular tribute acts and are rapidly gaining international recognition. The band boasts beauty as well as excellent musicianship, a lively stage presence, and a remarkable stage show with theatrical scenes interspersed throughout.

First and foremost on the agenda of The Iron Maidens is talent. These women are highly trained professionals with diversified musical backgrounds ranging from orchestral and musical theater to blues and rock. The band and its members have been the recipients of many awards including best tribute band, and best in category (guitar, bass, drums, voice) at events such as The Rock City News Awards, The LA Music Awards, and The All Access Magazine Award Show to name a few.

On September 9, the band will be making a national TV appearance on AXS TV's The World's Greatest Tribute Bands, performing LIVE from the Roxy Theatre. Bassist Wanda "Steph Harris" Ortiz (who plays a G&L SB-2™ and JB-2™ through a BBE BMAX-T preamp/processor) sent us this note:

"So, the girls and I will be on TV Monday, September 9. I'll be playing my 'sparkly' blue G&L and they are letting us use our own amps, so the BMAX-T will be there too! Hope you can tune in."

We definitely will! Visit www.axs.tv to find out how you can catch the show, and visit www.theironmaidens.com for more info about Wanda and The Iron Maidens.
