The Mark Rock Band is Mark Rock on guitar and vocals, Stuart Holme on bass, and John Allietta on drums.

Mark Rock sings songs by Peter Markush. Okay, actually, Mark Rock is Peter Markush.

Some of you may remember Mark Rock from The Marzaks and his solo efforts from the early 2000’s. Some of you may know Peter Markush as the cellist and manager of the Plum Blossom String Quartet or a qigong teacher or the bass player at Mt. Zion First African Baptist Church or the lead singer of Love Me Do or a computer geek or the guy who used to play piano for brunch at Fellini’s or the guy who used to hoop and fiddle on Charlottesville’s downtown mall or the former lead singer of The Falsies or the guy who played Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Live Arts in Charlottesville in 2006.

Some of you may know Stuart Holme from the many bands he plays in including Alligator, Mama Tried, The Cows, and Love Me Do.

Some of you may know John Allietta as the drummer for Phoenix Noir, Thrum, and Love Me Do.

Some of you may not know us but you might like us if you met us, and you might enjoy listening to our music.
