Maria in the Shower is a uniquely entertaining band at the leading edge of Canada’s new folk sound. Their musical approach is a simple but potent alchemy, marrying traditional folk and jazz with a delivery that’s pure fun and energy. There is a Kelowna connection as band member, drummer Todd Bifford, hails from here. He is joined by, trumpeter/accordionist Jack Garton, guitarist Martin Reisle, and bassist Brendan Hartley.
Some of their press accolades are as follows: “Wildly entertaining!” – Calgary Sun, “Part Vaudeville, part cabaret, part punk and part folk, Maria in the Shower is all that and more.”Winnipeg Free Press.
And the name? It came about when the then-nameless band, that performed its songs in ancient Hebrew and Greek, needed a moniker for a show. A painter friend had written the words Maria in the Shower on a painting and a story in the Weekly World News talked about an apparition of the Virgin Mary in her shower, so it just seemed like the right name at the right time.
