 Wanda Ortiz
Los Angeles, California, USA

Where were you born Wanda?
Laguna Beach, California, USA

What was your very first stage appearance?
A beginning orchestra concert for parents when I was nine years old.

Which bassist do you most admire?
There are a lot of bassists I admire a lot but if I had to pick one, my answer would be Steve Harris ~ especially since I'm playing in a Maiden tribute band. :)

Tell us about your gear?
I use G&L basses, Schroeder Superior Sound Cabinets (a 4x12 and a 2x12), a BBE B-Max-T pre-amp, A QSC PLX3102 Power Amp, Rotosound strings, and Coffin Cases.

. . . and your band?
The Iron Maidens are the world's only female tribute to legendary British metal band Iron Maiden. For more info, please visit our website (see Links)

What other bands have you played with?
I've mostly worked as a freelance musician with various orchestras and chamber groups in the Southern California area. But, I've also played in a number of mostly unknown original bands, one of which featured Steph Fontaine (Uriah Heep's old singer) - that band was called Heartache City.

Apart from USA, which countries have you played in?
Bahrain, Canada, Greece, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, and Turkey. We've also played in Guam and Puerto Rico (unincorporated territories of the USA).

What is your latest CD/album?
We just released an ep in Japan called "The Route of All Evil".
