While getting your Cayman Islands holiday, make sure to attend a show through the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came into this world in Germany (or Austria, dependant upon the source) but is currently just as much a part of the Cayman Islands as numerous locals. They have lived and played there since 1971 after a time period of island hopping which included Hawaii along with the Bahamas.
His songs are mainly a risqué parody set to calypso, reggae, country or pop music. In case you have seen the film ‘The Firm’, you would have often heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is also singing from the background while plage de sept mille logements à louer was dancing.
Barefoot not just writes and performs their own songs, also, he owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (located in most stores on Grand Cayman). They have also branched over to The Bahamas, where certainly one of his albums is in the Top 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 Liner Song’ once the visit by a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, that was written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although I have got been incapable of find this album or artist indexed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is finished without catching a show by The Barefoot Man. He can be obtained at The Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef may be the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
