Fred Velez contacted The Monkees Live Almanac and shared the news that he has recently recorded a Monkees-themed Christmas album:
"John Roginski of the Monkeephiles contacted me about recording a Christmas album and we came up with the concept of mashing up Christmas songs with Monkees tunes. We just finished recording this weekend and it came out great. I'm attaching a link to the first video pulled from the CD. We're also doing a fundraiser to cover the costs of the licensing and production costs. Anyone who contributes will get a free CD signed by me..."
