While owning your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure you attend a show from the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), was born in Germany (or Austria, depending on the source) but is now as much a part of the Cayman Islands as numerous locals. They have lived and played there since 1971 after a period of island hopping which included Hawaii as well as the Bahamas.
His songs are mainly a risqué parody set to calypso, reggae, country or pop music. When you have seen the film ‘The Firm’, then you would have heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is singing inside the background while Location de condo à grand caïman was dancing.
Barefoot not just writes and performs their own songs, also, he owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (located in most stores on Grand Cayman). They have also branched over to The Bahamas, where one among his albums is at the very best Ten for 4 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 Ship Song’ right after the visit from a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated that the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, which was written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although I have got been unable to find this album or artist listed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is complete without catching a show through the Barefoot Man. He is available with the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef may be the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
