On the same day that Alan Rickman, who played Professor Severus Snape, died from pancreatic cancer, the pair were brainstorming for a name for their musical duo.

“As we reminisced on the movie we instantly knew that there could be no other name for our duo than The Creevey’s,” Sam Hawkins told Bay News Of The Area.

Sam enters Year 11 this year and Jess will begin Year 12 at the Hunter School of the Performing Arts.

The Creevey’s play all genres as well as an assortment of well known songs from popular hits to old favourites.

“We were going to have a band but decided to stay as an acoustic duo and incorporate Sam on percussion into our sets,” Jess Rama said.

“I play guitar and am on vocals and Sam is on guitar, vocals, drums and percussion,” Ms Rama added.

Jess writes her own songs and the pair’s sound is smooth with an acoustic formula that is reminiscent of a cross between Mumford & Sons and Taylor Swift.

The duo can be enjoyed at various venues across the Hunter and on the Nelson Bay Foreshore on Friday nights from now until the end of summer.
