“The World’s Greatest Tribute Band” series hosted by @KatieDaryl, has brought, yet, another impressive concert to The Roxy Theater: The Iron Maidens, an all female tribute to rock’s legendary British band Iron Maiden. The music of Iron Maiden is intricate and complex and these talented musicians proved their competency while executing some of Iron Maiden’s toughest songs. Formed in 2001, these ladies have been touring the globe playing venues of all sizes. I had the distinct pleasure to meet Courtney Cox and Wanda Ortiz during a radio interview on Kong Monsterrock where I discovered a few interesting things about these ladies. Wanda Ortiz, bassist, is also classically trained and when not playing with the Maidens performs with orchestras on the double-bass. She is also on the board of directors to keep music alive in schools. Courtney’s been with the band for 4 years and she’s the youngest member at 24-years old. A self-taught guitarist, Courtney also plays lead guitar with the band Femme Fatale. As always The Roxy Theater was packed with adoring fans cheering and singing along. As soon as the curtain rose this powerhouse team came out with a bang, commanding the stage with their energy and enthusiasm. It was evident why these ladies were selected as the best.
