I hired Placid Rock for a company holiday party at a small venue and was a bit concerned that the trio might overpower the event. Mark was great to work with, took my volume requests to heart, and the party turned out great. It was just what we were looking for, upbeat energy without drowning conversations out. The trio was very talented and Mark especially professional, he took charge to reset equiptment for the toast without prompting, he was on top of it all night so that I could relax and enjoy the party. We would defenitely hire them again. -- Nancy L, Antioch, IL, 12/13/2009

Placid Rock changed the words to a song of one of the host's favorite performers to reflect his background and it was spot-on! The guests really enjoyed it, too! The band showed up on early, played throughout the night, and did a nice job. -- Anita S, Park Ridge, IL, 5/15/2010



Mark Heller started playing guitar in 8th grade (1963). He stopped when he entered the military just 6 years later but picked it up with a vengence in 2004. Now you'd be hard pressed to find him without a guitar within easy reach.

Mark has been in several different rock bands since 2004; namely Heller Highwater and Elder Chaos. After finding a replacement for himself in his most recent rock band, he pursued a more mild type of project and hand picked several musicians to join him in the Placid Rock band.

Mark plays guitar and provides lead vocals. He can be joined by other musicians who provide trumpet, flugle horn, sax, bass or a second guitarist. I have several ensemble partners that I rotate through on a regular basis to fit the venue.
