While owning your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure to attend a show from the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came to be in Germany (or Austria, according to the source) but is already as much an element 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 mostly 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 also singing in the background while Condos grand Caïman plage sept mile was dancing.
Barefoot not simply 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 out to The Bahamas, where 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’. He also sings about Cayman current affairs and wrote ‘The Gay Cruise Liner Song’ once the visit by 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 incapable of find this album or artist listed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is done without catching a show from 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.
