Reviews

"Mandi Miller has sass and class. Mandi's a superb singer who moves like a cat; she's riveting. I saw Mandi at a fashion show recently; she was nominally the entertainment component but in fact stole the show with her singing, personal fashion sense and style along with her charismatic presence." 

- JAMES DANIELS | BREEZE BREAKFAST ANNOUNCER | MEDIAWORKS CANTERBURY  

"When representing the company and hosting key clients, we need entertainers that reflect our high quality product and services. The X-Files Duo, Mark Wilson and Mandi Miller, are our first choice for entertainment as they are enthusiastic, professional and have great stage presence. From back ground atmospheric music to getting everyone up on the dance floor, they have a huge collection of songs that appeal to a wide range of people and can be tailored to suit our event themes." 

- Alison Smith, Director of Sales Conference and Incentives, New Zealand and Australia, Millennium Hotels and Resorts. 

"I always feel so proud of Mandi the way she dresses and she and has different change of clothes always looking gorgeous or just appropriate for whichever song she is singing and also knows how to interact with the crowds – walk and  move on the stage.  She is great for any gigs at all or even conferences for clients to be entertained as she certainly knows how to work that room and is up to International standard with her shows and her professionalism.  I would highly recommend her for any event at all big or small." 

- Lynne Puddy-Greenwood, Events Editor for Canterbury Today magazine
