About Me

***If we requested to stay with you and you HAVE A FUZZY PET, please please tell us right off the bat. Thanks.***

We are a 4 piece band ranging from 26-37 years old, BUT not what you would stereotypically expect. We do not destroy hotel rooms or throw TVs out windows. We like perusing bookstores, drinking coffee and having fun conversation. We regularly tour around New England, through the Mid-Atlantic and in New York. On stage we thrash about, but off stage we try to be respectful and professional. We travel with our own air mattresses, blankets, pillows, towels and teddies and are very clean and quiet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hotel rooms add up when you're on the road every night. Especially when we play in a city where we aren't quite so famous and we don't get paid a ton. We could easily spend more on a hotel room than we made at the gig. And we don't need the hotel room with it's little shampoo bottles and horrible TV. All we need is a warm place that is big enough to lay down in for 6 hours.

The other, and MAIN REASON is that we really like to get to know people in the towns we play, for soooo many reasons. So it's nice to chill at someone's house and yammer away. Its also fantastic, when we have time, to venture out into town and see what the locals consider the hot spots.

Having been incredibly active with Couchsurfing for a while now, we've decided that its pretty much the best thing ever. We've met so many awesome people, made friends and have had tons of fun! We are looking forward to all the crazy Couchsurfing adventures in our future!!!!

Interests

We're obviously into music. Among the members we would happily discuss visual art, writing, coffee, quantum physics, ancient history, gluing cats to walls, and pretty much anything else.

Music, Movies, and Books

Being that there are four of us, the list of favorites would go on and on and on...
Our musical influences range from jazz, classical, rock, hip hop, electronica, folk... etc.

Likewise, there are thousands of movies the four of us have watched.... But recently we've all been a little obsessed with RICK AND MORTY and BLACK MIRROR!

Once again, a bunch of books are read by all of us, but one really stands out: Ishmael. Every human on this planet should read it. The sequel, My Ishmael is equally as amazing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Grammy Nomination, led a parade of tripping hippies through the hood, performed dixie jazz at a funeral, made cops dance, rolled 5 yatzees in a row, ate a party size pizza in 1min 17 sec, drove from Philly to Northampton MA in 3.5 hours in a giant van, and Drake can bend his fingers all the way back...

Oh... it said "one". If I had to pick 1 it would be that we joined Arlo Guthrie on stage for "this land is my land". That was a highlight.

Teach, Learn, Share

You can bend Drake's fingers all the way back if you want. But just make sure you know which one Drake is. If you do it to anyone else, you've just ruined tour.

We can talk shop if you are an artist, writer, or musician. Perhaps even a lesson?

What I Can Share with Hosts

We can cook you breakfast. We can draw you pictures. We can change your light bulbs. (Light bulbs not included.) We can glue your cat to the wall. We can help you lift heavy things. We can show you different ways to hold a cupcake. High five. Wash your soap. Water your plants. Water your plants with water. Spoon. Etc...

We can offer you tickets to shows, CDs, stuff like that. And really, we're a lot of fun.
