The Chuck Creasey Band Chats of Writing, Recording, Touring and More!


Mixer uppers THE CHUCK CREASEY BAND have a few single's out there, along with music videos to accompany them. All new material is always being written and soon be released rather soon. Frontman vocalist/guitarist Robby Creasey goes on further chatter discussing his previous band and how this new band paves the way for all new stuff.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

I’m Robby Creasey and I sing/play guitar in the band. I have known our bass player, Charlee, since the previous band we were in together (Farewell, My Love). Chad, our drummer, and I met bartending together in Santa Monica when I moved to Los Angeles about three years ago. Max, our other guitar player, and I have been friends through music for many many years. I’ve had some songs finished and in the works since my move and eventually decided to get a band together because I wanted to be able to perform again, and just have fun playing music with my friends. So we got started in September 2019 and have released several songs and a couple videos since then.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

‘The Chuck Creasey Band’ comes from my name, as my real first name is “Charles”. Initially the songs I wrote were very much in the vein of “country rock” so I wanted to go with a name that felt more suitable for the genre. Turns out it’s just a cool sounding name in general.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We’re based out of Los Angeles, CA. West LA to be exact. The music scene in our area is not very active but if you take Sunset Blvd 20 minutes east to West Hollywood there is still a lot of rock n roll being played. LA has an extremely diverse collection of musical genres and musicians as you can imagine. A couple local guys I really dig, one is my buddy Hunter Reece, he’s a solo pop dude that's an awesome performer with a killer voice. I’ve also lately been getting into my friend Zach’s band ‘Pest’ and their new tunes. Zach is a great singer and an even better guitar player, and the stuff he writes is what rock music SHOULD sound like in my opinion.

4. How would you describe your style?

We definitely have a bit of a country twang to some of our tunes, a little folk and Americana, all mixed into guitar and drum heavy rock music.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We’ve released a few singles and music videos. Hangin’ With My Friends, Bucklebunny, and Everything Is Fine. I would hope that anyone that listens can expect and enjoy some carefree, good time songs that are just about having fun and feeling good. Nothing too heavy, the world is heavy enough.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

I’m always writing and recording. I mostly record everything at home but we do have a new song coming out soon that was recorded with my good friend Keith Cooper of the band ‘Dear Boy’. Another awesome LA band to check out.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We were actually getting ready to book our first local LA show when the Covid-19 pandemic began haha. Once shows start again we’ll try again, hopefully sooner than later.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Writing, recording, touring, and having a really good time doing it.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to our music on all streaming sites. Check out chuckcreasey.com for a quick link to your preferred platform.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I write and make music that I like, the message I portray in my songs is the same that I try and think about every single day. Have fun, enjoy life, and don’t stress too much. Life is too short to worry. Also, my music does sound better if you’re drinking a beer.
