While owning your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure you attend a show from the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), was created in Germany (or Austria, based on the source) but is currently the maximum amount of a part of the Cayman Islands as much locals. They have lived and played there since 1971 after a time 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. For those who have seen the film ‘The Firm’, then you would have often heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is also singing in the background while îles Caïmans de sept mile beach resort was dancing.
Barefoot not simply writes and performs his songs, he also owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (found in most stores on Grand Cayman). He has also branched out to The Bahamas, where certainly one of his albums was in the 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 Liner Song’ following the visit from 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 have been incapable of find this album or artist listed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is finished without catching a show with the Barefoot Man. He can be obtained in the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is definitely the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
