A Little Bit Christmas – Fred Velez and Friends

From Fred: Hey Hey Folks!

I was contacted by John Roginski of The Monkeephiles to put together a Christmas CD and we came up with the concept of mashing-up traditional Christmas songs with Monkees tunes. Over the weekend we recorded the CD and I think folks are really going to enjoy it. We are still collecting donations to cover production and licensing costs, but if you are lucky you can win an autographed copy here!

A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You

The Monkees From A Fan’s Perspective

Authored by Fred Velez

A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You: The Monkees From A Fan’s Perspective chronicles the stories of fans and their personal experiences with the 60’s Pop music group, While groups like the Beatles and Rolling Stones were seen as the “Mt. Olympus” in music, they were adored but inaccessible to their fans. The Monkees, on the other hand, cheerfully assured their followers, “Here we come…..We may be coming to YOUR town.” The connection between The Monkees and their public was much more unique in that they welcomed their fans into their world.

Fred Velez, known for over 40 years as a Monkees super-fan; as the Master of Ceremonies for the Monkees Conventions; Writer for the Monkee Business Fanzine; and Blog Writer for the, takes the reader on a fascinating journey as he follows the group from its earliest days. Fred, through his experiences, pictures and memorabilia, tells the tale of the Monkees. He writes about the TV show, the music, the concert tours, the different career paths the members of the group took, and the effect the untimely death of Davy Jones in 2012 had on the fans. Fred was one of the privileged few who went from being a kid sitting on the floor in the living room watching his favorite TV show, to an adult, sitting in Davy Jones living room as he helped Davy work on a book. Also included are the stories of other fans and how they too, had very personal involvement with the boys in the band, whether they were sitting in the audience, or up on the stage sharing the spotlight. This book is a heartfelt tribute from the fans to Micky, Davy, Peter and Mike. Fred Velez shares never before seen pictures of The Monkees in various venues, stories that will make you laugh, and personal recollections of fans who had their lives touched by this amazing music group. Fred also adds to the story by highlighting the decades with historical events and his interactions with other music greats, like John Lennon, Ringo Star, Paul McCartney, the Ramones, KISS, and, Jersey’s own, Uncle Floyd.

Jerry Beck, well known Animation Historian and another big Monkees fan, writes in his introduction to the book, “I’m grateful to Fred for making it possible for me to wave my Monkee freak flag high. Fred is one great guy-and a true believer to the end. His book and experiences with Monkee fandom and the Monkees themselves make a great story and tell the tale from another perspective. The Fan’s perspective…I hope they will read and enjoy Fred’s story-as it speaks for all of us who have ever felt that art transcends a single viewing, and how it touches our lives in such a positive way.”
