In 1981 David DeBoy's hit single, "Crabs for Christmas" descended on an unsuspecting Baltimore. This hilarious holiday novelty song sold over 12,000 records (remember those vinyl singles?) when it was first released in 1981. The catchy chorus, the genuine Bawlamerese accent and the strange plot line of a grown man asking Santa to deliver Crabs for Christmas has continued to delight audiences and radio listeners for more than three decades.
Now, to help celebrate the 30th anniversary, David DeBoy is releasing his second album, “Crabs for Christmas Live!”
Along with the original "Crabs for Christmas" hit single, David has written and performed 12 more original tracks. This is a wild and wacky collection of songs and comedy recorded at live concerts as well as in the studio.
The topics range from Balto-centric issues of being a "Balti-moron" and loving a Baltimore "Hon" to the broader topics of being diagnosed with a "Bad Case of Country" and wondering what happened to the donated organs of a lazy, cheating husband named "Willie." David's song will make you laugh out loud and sing along. It's a holiday treat that will delight listeners for another 30 years!
David DeBoy is an Emmy-winning writer and a published playwright that has been produced Off-Broadway. He's appeared in feature films with Renee Zellwegger and Chris Rock and on HBO with Julia Louis Dreyfus.
As a song-writer and performer he brings a quirky, provocative and unexpected twist to the Holidays with humor, pathos and tons of fun. Ya gotta listen!
