In 1981, Baltimore’s own David DeBoy released his silly song, Crabs for Christmas. And over 40 years later, after selling tens of thousands of records, CDs, and digital copies, the song has become a regional holiday favorite.
Now, for the first time, David tells the inside story of how Crabs for Christmas became a regional sensation! He’ll also share hilarious (and sometimes embarrassing) tales of his triumphs (and failures) as a singer, actor, writer, voiceover artist, and general troublemaker.
In his book, David reveals great stories about his run-ins with Blaze Starr, Charlie Eckman, John Waters, Barry Levinson, Natalie Portman, Renee Zellweger, Julia Louis-Dreyfus. And he’ll tell tales of his time on the sets of The Wire, Homicide: Life on the Street, VEEP, and many local TV shows.
PLUS: The book includes sheet music of Crabs for Christmas and other David DeBoy songs!
IT’S THE PERFECT GIFT for every Bawlamer native… and those who love them!
