The Catbird Cafe will be closed on Saturday, July 23. We will reopen on Saturday July 30 at 4:30 PM.
Walter “Bear” Zaremba was a popular member of the Cat Bird Cafe. He passed away a few weeks ago. A memorial “Catbird Cafe” was held in his honor on Father’s Day. Friends, family and fans attended from all over the East Coast. One friend said, “Bear will be remembered for his music. He loved to play and with anyone, expert and novice alike.” He will be missed greatly. He embodied the spirit of the Center and its welcoming embrace to all people, and all living creatures!
Below Bear plays opposite Matt Reisman in a “Deliverance” style guitar duel. Bear matched simultaneously Matt’s notes by watching his fingers race across the guitar strings.
Each Saturday from 5 PM until 10 PM the Wildlife Center hosts an open mic for performers of all music types, poetry and even belly dancers. Join us, either to perform or to just listen. It is a great place to get inspiration.
