Tarrytown's Clare Maloney is not your average rocker.  The internationally renowned singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has shared the stage with members of The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship, Allman Brothers Band, Hall & Oates, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and more.  Before transitioning to rock and roll full time, Clare trained extensively and toured as an opera singer, appearing multiple times at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Town Hall, Symphony Space, 92ndY, National Sawdust and at concert halls throughout Europe and Asia.   After over a decade of writer's block, she used her downtime during the pandemic to reignite her muse, writing nearly 100 songs and forming her own band, Clare Maloney & The Great Adventure.  The band, featuring Nate DeBrine, Nathan Graham (Midnight North, Phil Lesh), and Larry Cook (Tony Trischka, Joshua Hedley), played their first show in June 2021 to a sold out crowd at The Bitter End in New York City.  A regular residency at The Bitter End followed, as well as opening slots for Phil Lesh & Friends, Donna the Buffalo and Scars on 45.  In the spring and early summer of 2022, the band released their first three singles and played a series of dates along the East Coast and in the Midwest in support of their new music.  Local highlights include their debut on the main stage at this summer's Pleasantville Music Festival and an appearance at 107.1 The Peak's Beach House series in Rye, NY.  Their debut album of rock, soul and americana originals is due out in late 2022.

There are only 80 veterinary behaviorists world-wide—and we have the only specially trained Behavior Vets in NYC. It takes an average of 12 years of schooling to become a veterinary behaviorist — a veterinary doctor specially trained to work with behavior problems. Veterinary behaviorists can legally diagnose behavior issues, assess and treat the medical components of behavior problems, and prescribe diets, supplements, and medications when needed to support behavior modification and training. We have both veterinary behaviorists and applied animal behaviorists. That’s rare to find. And we work together for the best possible outcome for you and your pet.

Behavior Vets will be hosting a Q&A "Let's Chat Cats & Dogs" from 12-12:30; 1-1:30, and 2-2:30

My name is Lisa Starck Donovan. I love animals, and watercolor painting. I love painting pet portraits, because of the deep connection we have with our pets. I think all animals are sentient beings that have feelings and a soul. This is what I want to show when I paint their portraits.
