FRED PARRIS, Lead of the 5 SATINS Is 83 Today
A New Haven, Connecticut native, FRED PARRIS began with a doo wop group called the SCARLETS. However, it was his records with the FIVE SATINS that brought him enduring fame. Fred sings lead on the immortal "IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT," recorded in a church basement at St. Bernadette's in New Haven. Enjoy a lip-synced vintage performance of that classic by clicking on the photo. Happy birthday Fred, you're 83 today and still going strong.
