My name is Billy Bertman and I have played guitar around Seattle for years. (The Intruders, Nico Wind Band, The Holly Kline Band, Redax, Maximillion, William and Alene, Albritton Mclaine and the Bridge of Souls and currently Southbound and Burning Wood)

Above is another Redax photo which is one of the later versions. The lineup right to left is Mike Aleksich, Drums, Larry Lehnertz bass and vocals, Billy Bertman Guitar and vocals, Scott Janssen guitar keys and vocals.

I replaced Mark Black in the band. Later on Scott Hunt came in to play drums and Bill Becker on Keyboards and I believe that was the final version or close to it. I always joke that if there was ever a Redax reunion we would have to rent out Safeco field to fit all the members!!!

What a great site you have done. It is so fun to look back at all the great bands and musicians over all the years…Thanks so much!!!
