Michael Treco  

Michael Treco

Michael was taught bass in the early 70's by friend and mentor, Charlie Hengel. During high school he played in various minor rock bands such as Dessert Lake, Hot August and Salts and Pepper. In 1977 he was lucky enough to join Anheuser, one of the areas most popular Pop Rock/Bands. He played with them during their golden era of 1977 to 1986. He had plans to continue in music after that, but a Mr McGuffin interceded and cancelled those plans.

In 1999 he joined Helixx and was happy to reunite with many ex Anheuser band mates, who've been in and out of the band in the last decade. HIs long range goal is still to be the next Sinatra, but unfortunately still can't carry a tune.

Kevin Troise

Kevin, Guitar,Vocals & Keyboards and known to some as ‘RockStar’. After breaking free from years of lessons, I have played my guitar for live audiences throughout the tri-state area. My favorites are Gibson’s Les Paul and Fender’s Stratocaster. They have a distinct sound and feel all their own.

Through the years I have played in several area bands; some remarkable and some to forget. Now as an accomplished musician I am an intricate member of the Helixx Band. Thanks for your support and I hope to see you at an upcoming Helixx event.

Singing and dancing have been a part of my life since the age of four. Dancing school and choir consumed most of my adolescence. As an adult, I sang for friends and families weddings and funerals. I had always wanted to be in a band, but it was just one of those things that never happened. At 35, I realized that if I was ever going to do it, I’d better do it now before I got too old. So, at 35, I joined my first band and a rock band to boot. It was a lot of fun but realized after two years, it was time to pursue a different direction.

I actually found Helixx on Craig’s list and knew already what a great band they were since I had seen them perform. The rest is history. I am very fortunate to be in a band with such talented musicians. It has been a lot of fun and I have learned a lot from them, and have made some lasting friendships.

Mark Dailey  

Mark Dailey

At 12 years old, Mark started playing the drums in the high school band. He knew from the day he started, it would be a life long pasion. After high school, Mark studied Applied Music at Charleston university and later graduated with honors in Architecture. He toured professionally for 2 1/2 years with the Jimmy Allen Show band, noted for playing with likes of Elvin Bishop and Buddy Miles. He also studied percussion with big band drummer Jim Chapin whose son was Harry Chapin who wrote many famous songs such as "Cat's in the Cradle".

After playing with many bands, Mark formed the band Martin and Dailey with lifelong friend Don Martin, which was to become the Tri-State area's #1 wedding / party band playing for notorieties such as Delaware's governor and the DuPont LPGA. During this time, Mark won "best drummer" and "best percussionist" for several years in a row in a leading local Delaware magazine poll. Mark is entirely thrilled to be playing in Helixx, laying down the groove for a band dedicated to pleasing its audiences 100%!
