Just in case you missed it, here’s our official music video for our Christmas song last year. We’re currently at 875 views and would love to make it to 1,000 – can you help? If you like it, please consider subscribing and sharing it around. We’ll be re-releasing the track for Christmas 2021… If you like it A LOT, you can download it from this link: https://tonedeftony.hearnow.com/ which will also give the link to play it on Spotify! Thanks for all your support 🙂
Fuck the pub and hospitality trade, they’re doing fine! What we need to do is put all our efforts and energies into helping the hopelessly underprivileged, under-funded, under-talked-about Spastic Black Transgender Kittens of this world that pay most of the taxes, employ most of the people, give people a safe-haven, raise money for charity, are at the center of most communities, and have been totally overlooked by the government.
It is for this reason that I have made an executive decision to donate ALL the royalties of my song, “I Got P*$$ed With Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony to the National Save Spastic Black Transgender Kittens Society.

As if it wasn’t time consuming and hard enough to go through all the steps and hurdles to create, compose, master, release, register, distribute, and promote an original song – not to mention the personal financial outlay involved – trying to find a charity to partner with has proven just as time consuming, and even more frustrating.
For over two months now we have been trying to find a charity involved with the pub and hospitality industry (which is crying out for help!) to partner with. I think we’ve contacted every single one that we could find via the internet, and have yet to find one willing to work with us! Even though it’s tempting, I won’t embarrass the organisations that have already turned us down for various reasons (including the use of a very mild swear word in our song, all the way up to disagreeing that COVID-19 is like the Flu! To name just a few daft excuses!)
They are all very happy to accept our donation once we’ve done all the hard work, but none want to be associated with us. What does that say about their organisations? To me, it puts them in exactly the same league as our incompetent government that is more than happy to spend our taxpayer money on whims and whimsy, but aren’t prepared to put their own oars in the water and paddle! Likewise the uptake by the hospitality industry in general has been lacking. At this rate, I’m more inclined to give any money we actually will raise to race-nondescript, trans-gender, vegan, teetotaler, car-hating, eco-friendly, tofu-terrorists that look like cute kittens!
Just saying… it’s frustrating.
Amidst 1000s of emails we have to send to help promote our charity song, I still manage to find the time to respond to fan’s requests, and those from overseas where English is NOT their first language, they have requested a Lyric Video (a sing-a-long version to you and I!) to help them learn and understand the song.
Click the link below to set a reminder to be amongst the first to listen along and read the funny (albeit slightly rude by prudish standards) lyrics to our charity Chirstmas song, “I Got P*$$ed with Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony:
And don’t forget, it’s raising money for charity, so if you like it please buy it, stream it, share it, like it, toast it, add it to your morning coffee, have it as a chaser with your favourite beer, whatever!

Great to be on BBC Radio Solent with Pat Sissons yesterday for his Make A Difference segment. He said, “…we’re gonna have to beat this one, I think.” Encouraging support and the first DJ (that we know of so far) to actually give our song some airplay. It was great to hear him say, “Tone Def Tony… Def as in cool!”
Definitely added to the new hero list. Hear the interview below:
The George Michael Christmas classic gets absolutely ruined by the ‘dulcet’ tones of Tone Def Tony! But then he has a very open message to all the fans and viewers about Christmas, his last Christmas, and his thoughts about THIS CHRISTMAS…
After two very long years, we have finally managed to get all our ‘pints’ in a row and release our novelty Christmas song, “I Got P*$$ed With Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony. And what a year to release it! Who knew back in 2018 that two years later we would all be in the middle of the most f****d-up year of our lives? I don’t think anybody has come out unscathed from this catastrophe, least of all the pub and hospitality trade who we’re trying to help out by raising money from the proceeds of our single.
It is now available to buy, download, stream, pester your DJ to play, etc.
AND WE DO NEED YOUR HELP!
We know it’s going to be an uphill sleigh ride trying to get to this year’s number one slot – especially as we’re going up against a mountain of celebrity, millionaire musicians who’ve all decided to release Christmas music this year! We also know that most people won’t have any extra money this Christmas, but you can support us in many other ways:

Well, what do you know, after creating a radio-friendly version of the song, I’ve managed to work out how to add that version to our music video and create a ‘Snowflake’-friendly version of that too! Now you have a choice: naughty or nice! Very Christmassy, we think.
