“Jersey Boys” cast members celebrate their seventh anniversary at Paris Las Vegas.

It’s a record deal for “Jersey Boys” star Travis Cloer, who appears in the Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons hit musical, which just celebrated seven years on the Strip, at Paris Las Vegas.

Travis turned to crowfunding to raise the high cost of recording his new album “Christmas at My Place” to be released during the holiday.

His Kickstarter campaign won 290 backers, including yours truly, who pledged a total of $30,191 to help bring the project to life.

Now he will produce a new Christmas record with an orchestra in which old school meets new school.

In his email this morning, he wrote: “I almost can’t believe that this is happening! I’m so happy to let you all know that ‘Christmas at My Place’ is officially a go! We have received the green light!!!

“I’m so humbled by all the support and words of encouragement you have all given me, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your pledges. I’m so excited about this project.

“You are all so amazing, and I’m blown away by your kindness and generosity! Love and peace, Travis.”
