While owning your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure to attend a show by the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came into this world in Germany (or Austria, dependant upon the source) but is currently just as much a part of the Cayman Islands as numerous locals. He has lived and played there since 1971 after a time period of island hopping which included Hawaii along with the Bahamas.
His songs are mainly a risqué parody set to calypso, reggae, country or pop music. If you have seen the film ‘The Firm’, then you would already know Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and it is singing within the background while Grand Caïman condos sept mile plage was dancing.
Barefoot not only writes and performs his own songs, also, he owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (seen in most stores on Grand Cayman). They have also branched over to The Bahamas, where one of his albums is in the most notable Ten for four years.
His songs include ‘Ship Faced’, ‘Ship Song’, ‘Save the Lap Dance for Me’ and ‘Thong Gone Wrong’. He also sings about Cayman current affairs and wrote ‘The Gay Cruise Liner Song’ following the visit from a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated how the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, that was written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although I actually have been not able to find this album or artist indexed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is done without catching a show through the Barefoot Man. He are available in the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is definitely the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
