“Millar is a Star, with his dynamic, often forceful and dramatic singing and his personable stage manner. He leads the snappy repartee among the musicians, and he can get inspired enough to jump up and sing on a table.”
–Minneapolis Star Tribune Entertainment Critic
“Once again you wowed the crowd! Your performance as the wrap up group at our International Conference was truly the best way we could think of to send our staff back to the field … Two representatives of Billboard Magazine commented to me that you guys were as good or better than any act we had all week. By the way, that included David Bowie, M.C. Hammer, Henry Lee Sumer, Kenny Loggins, Robbie Neville, Aaron Neville, Kik Tracee, and many more!”
