00:00 / 00:00

BO JOHNSON

RHYTHM GUITAR // LEAD VOCALS // AUXILIARY PERCUSSION 

 

Bo was born in Terre Haute, Indiana.  He attended UW Eau Claire, where he majored in Theatre Arts.  This experience launched a career with Milwaukee Chamber Theatre and Milwaukee Shakespeare Company. In addition to playing rhythm guitar and percussion for Random Maxx since the band began, Bo played percussion with award-winning folk artists the Mambo Surfers.  Bo has been involved in music in some way since before he can remember and there are very few things in this world that make him as joyous as those moments when Random Maxx lands on one of those beautiful 5-part vocal harmonies.  (This bio will make Margaret happy.)

JAKE GOBEL

ELECTRIC BASS // BACKUP VOCALS

 

Jake was discovered by Jamie when she needed a surfboard so she could surf to LA. Jake just happened to be plying his surfboard wares online to people in flyover land --- it was destined to be. After months of correspondence, Jamie convinced Jake to move his musical equipment into our rehearsal space, and play bass instead of selling surfboards online. The rest, as they say is history.


Or is it?

MARK REDLICH

LEAD GUITAR // LEAD VOCALS

 

Mark, Random Maxx's lead guitarist, is one of the founding members of Random Maxx (along with Bo Johnson). Mark's musical development is a long and boring history, which shall not be recounted here (just too many hair bands).  On the plus, Mark is an alumnus of the Kids from Wisconsin, and continues to perform regularly on weekends as an improv "actlete" with ComedySportz in Milwaukee. Outside of performance Mark is a Ph.D. chemist with a lovely wife, daughter, son, dog and cat. During performance he is a dangerous, volatile, and cunning conduit of musical sensation. True story.

KATRINA JEAN

KEYBOARDS // LEAD VOCALS 

Katrina is the newest member of Random Maxx. She is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, because she’s got too many feelings for her own good. She holds a degree in clinical psychology from Roosevelt University, and works as a Personal Support Worker for kids and young adults with special needs. She typically spends her free time eating vegetables, dancing, or contemplating existence…sometimes all three simultaneously.  One of her life’s goals is to hug at least half of the world’s population. So please help her out.

TERRY SCHROEDER

DRUMS // LEAD VOCALS 

Terry Schroeder is the drummer for Random Maxx. While behind the kit, he can also be heard singing backup vocals and spittin’ mad rhymes as the resident rapper of the group. He has added performing, touring and recording for over 20 years to his credit and sends a big “thank you” to all his music teachers and directors. He cheers for the Brewers and Packers and is a native of Kenosha, WI.


Terry celebrated a very successful 2012 with Random Maxx, winning “Cover Band of the Year” from the Shepherd Express Best Of Milwaukee Readers' Choice Poll..

STATLER AND WALDORF

MUPPET REPRESENTATIVES // BACKUP HECKLING 

Statler and Waldorf share the balcony box located on the front of Terry's kick drum, and the two delight in heckling every aspect of Random Maxx's performances. They usually have the last word, with a final comment at the end of most gigs. Statler and Waldorf are especially unforgiving to Mark.
