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 now led by celebrated pianist Rachel Kaufman with Broadway actress, singer-songwriter ... and whistler, Lauren Elder plus a team of musicians and vocalists complimenting the Rev's show-stopping voice.

"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
