While getting your Cayman Islands holiday, make sure to attend a show through the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came to be in Germany (or Austria, depending on the source) but is already as much a part of the Cayman Islands several locals. They have 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. For those who 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 inside the background while Grand Caïman 7 mile stations balnéaires was dancing.
Barefoot not just writes and performs his very own songs, also, he owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (present in most stores on Grand Cayman). They have also branched out to The Bahamas, where among his albums is at 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’ following the visit with a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated how the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, that has been written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although I have been unable to find this album or artist indexed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is complete without catching a show by The Barefoot Man. He can be obtained with the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is definitely the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
