Looking for musicians to play with and possibly surf with from sept 18-23

My girlfriend Katie and I will be arriving in NYC around 10am on Sept.18th via amtrak and will be departing in the early afternoon on Sept 23rd. We are looking for hosts as well as couchsurfers to meet up with. Ideally, we would like to spend a night or two with several different hosts so we can meet as many couchsurfers as possible but if we are unable to find enough hosts we would be ever so grateful to surf for the entirety of the trip. I plan on proposing on the trip so it is possible that I will book a hotel for one night to celebrate (if I can find a hotel with a reasonable price). We will also definitely be attending at least one couchsurfing event or meeting so if you are interested in meeting up for one, please let me know. It will be Katie’s first time in NYC so we will inevitably be hitting some of the main tourist spots but we will also be hitting local pubs, restaurants, comedy clubs, music clubs (specifically jazz, hip hop), going for hikes, runs, bike rides, thrift shopping, probably some museums and broadway. We would also like to spend some time in all of the burroughs. Even if you are unable to host, please let me know if you want to go on any adventures with us or grab some food or drinks etc. Some of my greatest memories of travelling involve playing music with hosts all over the world and I would love to do that if I can find some musicians.

A little about Katie and I:
I am a pioneer couchsurfer, I am verified and have been vouched for.I have a certificate in audio engineering, I study vocals professionally and I went to the University of Western Ontario for philosophy and psychology. I love to run, bike, write and perform music and discuss philosophy. I currently manage an Urban Outfitters.

Katie is a chemical technician working for the provincial government in nuclear power plants. She is definitely a science nerd and enjoys talking about it. She is obsessed with DIY and loves her beagle Ruby more than anything in the world. She is a great soccor player and I’m sure she’d love to play some soccor in NYC if we can get a group together.

p.s. We will arriving with samples of 100% Canadian maple syrup, rye whisky, our favourite Canadian craft brews and wine, ketchup chips, nanaimo bars and other only found in Canada products.

Great idea. Lets play for change in September! I'm a drummer, and I have some percussion for people to use.

Once its a bit closer we can coordinate and make a date to jam on some ideas.
