Fred Boak sings “Toyland” at the Christmas Cavalcade




ORLEANS – Fred Boak, known mostly as “The Valet” in several of Chandler Travis’ approximately four million bands, is usually a backup singer. But here he is taking lead on this magical version of “Toyland”.

The singers backing him are called the Athol Thingerth (yes, that is spelled correctly).

The Christmas Cavalcade raises money for the NOAH homeless shelter. Please donate to the NOAH Shelter here.
