Now playing in Harry Creech and The Essentials, with son Darcy Creech on drums and David Balam on bass guitar.If the current rumours are indeed true, then Harry and the boys (The Essentials) have been playing all over town at such venues as the Victoria Curling Club, the Cedar Hill Golf Club, several large private parties and the Empress Hotel (Palm Court). Stay turned for more mis-adventures.....

Harry also played drums for Voodoo Kitty in 97-98, produced the music, he is featured on drums with the band on the "Live at the Java house CD" 98'.

In the early 1980's there was a popular 6-part comedy skit that played for several years on CKDA radio called "Jerks in Space". THe skit involved the mis-adventures of two zany aliens who spent much of their time commenting on Victoria's entertainment night life. Our two intrepid alien heros eventually crash landed their flying saucer and were forced to go on U.I.C. (now knowm as E.I.). In real life, the identity of the saucer commander was Harry and the other alien was Dave Balam.

Inducted into the Victoria Music Hall of Fame in 2009
