We had the good fortune of connecting with Astrid Voxx and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Astrid, what principle do you value most?
I believe in integrity, respect, discipline and compassion and these values I bring into leading a band! I treat people like I want to be treated so the golden rule in life is my motto!
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Creating an all female tribute band is a childhood dream realized! Inspired by my daughter, I saw the need to fill a musical void in South Florida that had no one representing females in rock music as a totally female band and I wanted to do it and with God’s help have accomplished this feat! It isn’t easy to get past the naysayers, sexists and low self esteem of many colleagues but with perseverance and the people who support us, we’ve done well!
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Definitely go to my zen spot, the beach while biking then eat at Quarterdecks on Dania Bch or The Marriott on Hollywood beach cuz the views are great snd so is the food!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
As the leader of an all female tribute band, we pay homage to all the women in rock past, present and future but especially the all female bands before us such as The Bangles, The Go-Go’s and Vixen and The Runaways! We pride ourselves in having the talent to play Benatar, Cranberries, Blondie, Republica and more not just all female bands but female fronted ones too! Our diverse age range is inclusive of many generations of experiences and musical tastes so we speak to a wide demographic of fans and we love that!
