Without the Hub, we might never have heard Adam Sandler’s legendary “Chanukah Song” (well, we like to think this could be true). The funnyman got his start in Boston, doing spontaneous stand-up comedy at a local comedy club.
In light of the holiday season, and in honor of the former “Saturday Night Live” star and producer of Hub-area movies like “Grown Ups” and “That’s My Boy,” we’ve rounded up a slew of other musical acts with Boston ties that have performed holiday tunes. Take a gander, and let us know your favorite Boston bands and holiday songs.
Pictured: Sandler performed “The Chanukah Song” on a “Saturday Night Live” segment called “Weekend Update” on Dec. 3, 1994.
A sample of “The Chanukah Song”:
I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids who don’t get to hear any Chanukah songs
