Rev. Mary [Micari] a specialist of dirty blues and vintage songs with a filthy flair is back again to bring you even more raucous, rowdy, bawdy blues, plus early rock and cabaret songs that will have you blushing more than anything out there today! Back-in-the-day, censorship made singers and songwriters work hard to hammer out sexy lyrics but under the cloak of double-entendres & clever turns-of-phrase. Rev. Mary brings these songs back to life with a theatrical flair as she honors the women who wrote them. Prepare for wild time and the hottest history lesson in ... well ... history!

The Granny's Blue-Mers orchestra is led by celebrated composer/pianist Dan Furman with Broadway drummer (and also, composer) Andrew Beall. Mario Claudio, a member of the final season of LINE and of the current extravaganza, UVX, is the Rev.'s back-up vocalist.

"Commander Mary Micari went the entire time, non-stop, belting out rousing renditions and torch-ish songs, all possessing her razor-sharp wit. Mary's voice is not like any other. She has the beauty and poise of a trained singer with the rugged edge of a good old fashioned vaudevillian songbird. Her stage presence was absolutely incandescent." Evan Meena, Words4MusicBlog

"Reverend Mary (Yes, she is a spiritual leader as well. No one can say "Glory, Amen!" quite like she can!) ... in between sipping her moonshine and playing her washboard, this singer knows how to belt- as well as how to growl and occasionally roar. She can also switch to slow and sexy to feverishly romantic. Micari's voice is robust, lusty, and well suited for songs about female empowerment." Jed Ryan, Huffington Post

"Rev. Marys One Hour Mama was simply fantastic, breathing life into age-old songs about love  and making it - that have fallen out of circulation. Mary and companyGrannys Blue-mersdressed in exquisite period costumes, made the songs both relevant and fun, teasing that Dont Come Too Soon reminds them about men who come too soon, too late, or not at all. Whats a guy to do? Well, hes got to follow instructions. Rev. Mary, with her tremendous voice, was in good company ... Marrio Claudio, the backup vocalist, played the role of Sugarcane and he and Mary played off each other well, especially when joking about a man they shared who reminded them of the song, Organ Grinder Blues. The group was thorough and well-rehearsed in their flawless revival of these wonderful, albeit little-known, classics. Their talents do these songs justice. Just remember: Youve got to see mama every night or you cant see mama at all.    Chris Struck, Cabaret Scenes
