While getting your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure you attend a show with the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), was born in Germany (or Austria, based on the source) but is now the maximum amount of an element of the Cayman Islands as much locals. He has lived and played there since 1971 after a period of island hopping which included Hawaii along with the Bahamas.
His songs are mostly a risqué parody set to calypso, reggae, country or pop music. When you have seen the film ‘The Firm’, then you would already know Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is also singing within the background while Caïman club grand caïman was dancing.
Barefoot not only writes and performs their own songs, also, he owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (present in most stores on Grand Cayman). He has also branched out to The Bahamas, where one of his albums was in the Top Ten for 4 years.
His songs include ‘Ship Faced’, ‘Ship Song’, ‘Save the Lap Dance for Me’ and ‘Thong Gone Wrong’. Also, he sings about Cayman current affairs and wrote ‘The Gay Cruise Ship Song’ right after the visit by a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated that the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, which had been written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although We have been struggling to find this album or artist placed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is complete without catching a show by The Barefoot Man. He is available in the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is definitely the only 100% beach hotel on Grand Cayman.
