About

The Millionaires are a Detroit, Michigan based band, specializing in Swing, Jump Blues, Rhythm & Blues, and Latin Jazz.

The immediate origin of the band can be traced to the mid-1990's and a rehearsal-only project which eventually became a performing group known as The Magnificent Seven. By the end of the decade, the band had recorded their "Keep A Dollar In Your Pocket" release and settled into their new persona as "The Millionaires"

In truth, however, the die was cast long before, by the many generations of great Detroit area musicians, bands, and orchestras that had one thing in common....their love for playing dance music. The musical styles within that genre, while each having their own unique qualities, also have one thing in common....they have provided us with our legacy of popular music.
