While owning your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure you attend a show through the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), was born in Germany (or Austria, dependant upon the source) but is currently as much an element of the Cayman Islands as many locals. They have lived and played there since 1971 after a time period of island hopping which included Hawaii and 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 heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ which is singing inside the background while Beach club hôtel grand caïman 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). He has also branched out to The Bahamas, where among his albums is at the very 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’ right after the visit by way of 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 struggling to find this album or artist placed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is done without catching a show by The Barefoot Man. He can be obtained on the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is the only 100% beach hotel on Grand Cayman.
