We have used John Miller for our Santa Sessions since 2010. I can tell you that every child who visited him since 2010 still Believes! He is so wonderful and warm, with so many wonderful stories. Each visit has been a wonderful experience our clients will never forget!
We had an early holiday celebration this year so that our newly combined family could meet all of their new extended family. We had about 30 people; with about half of that being under 12yrs old. Santa (Mr.Miller) was a show stopper! We booked him of an hour. The kids were all so excited to see that Santa made a special appearance to our party. One of the things that really blew us away was that Mr.Miller had original an original storybook about his elves; coloring books about Santa's favorite cookie; and even CD that had him narrating how he became Santa that he distributed to all the kids (found out later that he wrote all the stories, and he even wrote the music that was on the CD). He interacted with the adults and the kids; and was an absolute delight. Granted, a little pricier than other Santa's and real bearded Santa's I had gotten quotes for; but it so worth every penny and more. I can't say how great of an experience it was to have booked Mr. Miller. I have already inquired about having him make an appearance for my company's holiday party and maybe an advertisement ad in 2019.
This is our first year for a holiday client party as well as finding the right Santa. We found the right Santa! He is the real deal. Everything is authentic including his beard. He engaged with the kids and they loved him. We got great pictures of him with the kids. He was with us for two hours. We will definitely call Santa again for our next holiday client party!
This Santa has made a stop at CVG the past 3 Seasons. We look forward to his return each year. He takes his role seriously and is a lot of fun to work with. Families and kids love him!
For over a decade, Cincinnati Marriott North has had the pleasure of working with Cincinnati Real Beard Santa for our annual Breakfast With Santa event. It is always a joy to see Cincinnati Real Beard Santa each year during the holidays.
Cincinnati Real Beard Santa was awesome for our company Christmas party for the second year in a row. Always very professional and personable. As a great story teller, he will keep everyone entertained! I'm sure we will have him back next year if he is available.
Cincinnati Real Beard Santa did a phenomenal job! The adults loved him as much as the kids did. You can tell that he genuinely enjoys what he does and does it very well! He did story time with the kids and even walked around our event more than sitting down which was awesome! I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a visit from Santa!
He looks just like santa! My 5 year old was mesmerized!!!
Santa was very professional. He is willing to travel locally. When I met Santa, I knew he was "Cincinnati Real Beard Santa"!
I think Santa is a Fabulous man; and he can make anyone smile!
My community has hired this Santa for a Christmas celebration for several years now, and he never fails to deliver several hours of listening and pictures. The above quote is an actual, unsolicited comment from a little girl who came to visit at our City Building. We will be hiring him again.
The children get overjoyed when they hear his jingle bells enter the building! We believe Santa is the "Real Santa" with the way he touches each child’s heart and takes the time to answer their questions. We value Santa takes to time to hold each 100 children on his lap to share what they wish for Christmas and take a memorable photo. Christmas would not be Christmas without "Santa" making his magical presence at our Learning Center! Tootle’s to You!
There is nothing more rewarding than watching young faces light up when they meet the real Santa (John). From the youngest to the most senior of children (in their 60s and 70s) he connects, delights, and creates that sense of marvel and awe that is such a part of the season.
This was the first time we used John for a holiday party. He was great! He was very patient with the kids and their families while answering their questions and posing for pictures. The kids also really enjoyed his book "An Elf Mystery." I would highly recommend John for any holiday event!
We have had John work with us for events for the past three Decembers, and look forward to his return this coming December. Families now make their visit with John/Santa here part of their annual tradition. He takes his time with the families, reaches across generations to involve all in the experience, and readily finds newer and truer believers each year.
I have hired this gentleman to be Santa at our City Building for our "Christmas in Trenton" community celebration for several years now. The best thing I can say is that one young lady whispered to her Mom "That's the real one!" as she came in to get her picture taken.
John Miller has been our "Santa" for two years in a row and he is scheduled to appear at our Singing with Santa event this December. John's performance has been paramount. Professionally, John is in "Santa" character from the time he steps foot onto our parking lot/roof until the time he leaves the facility in his vehicle/sleigh. He is outstanding with interacting with the children and embracing the excitement of the holiday. John's performance is also consistent. With a line of 100 children waiting for Santa, the last child receives the same enthusiam in Santa's Ho-Ho-Ho's as the first child in line. John has also been very flexible with our changing event. Some year's we've done a dinner w/santa, cookies & crafts w/santa and now this year, singing w/Santa.
Thanks "Santa" (John), we are really looking forward to having you return to Miami University Voice of America Learning Center for our second Maimi Holiday Shopping Day with Santa. The success of last December's event was in no small measure due to your presence and patience with the kids of all ages. (I noted several of my staff colleagues taking a monent to catch a quick word with St. Nick before it got too close to Christmas.) The response from the younger Miami alums (20-something with young children) was phenomenal and as I shared with you earlier, the most visited photo of all those on our flickr.com web pages is the photo of you in the Maimi hoodie! So we're looking forward to the return visit on December 11, 2010. It is always nice to have Santa who is also a fellow Miami alum! That's way Santa wears "RED"!
Thanks Santa for performing at the Condon School Christmas party. You were quite a hit last year and I know Chairperson Susan will ask you again for 2010. I will pass out your business cards to other Rotarians who are leaders in many large companies.
Dr. Charles Pierce
Thanks you "Santa" so much for all your effort in making the children and staff of the Condon (special needs) school so very, very happy! The extra time and effort you made to make everybody feel so special. All I heard about for the next month was what a wonderful Santa you are and coming from my doctor brother says a lot! Again Thank You for all you did for such a special school.
It is a pleasure to know that I have such a wonderful contact in Ohio. Your Santa friend in Minnesota, Santa Tom Pierce
