While having your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure you attend a show with the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came into this world in Germany (or Austria, dependant upon the source) but is already as much a part of the Cayman Islands several locals. He has lived and played there since 1971 after a period of island hopping which included Hawaii and also 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 often hear Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is also singing within the background while Condo location plage sept mile grand caïman was dancing.
Barefoot not only writes and performs his own songs, he also owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (found in most stores on Grand Cayman). He has also branched over to The Bahamas, where one among his albums is in the very best Ten for four 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’ after the visit by way of a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, that has been written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although I actually have been unable to find this album or artist indexed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is done without catching a show by The Barefoot Man. He can be obtained at The Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is definitely the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
