While getting your Cayman Islands holiday, make sure you attend a show from the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), was born in Germany (or Austria, based on the source) but is now as much an element of the Cayman Islands as numerous locals. He has lived and played there since 1971 after a 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. If you have seen the film ‘The Firm’, you would have often heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and it is singing from the background while Condos grand Caïman plage sept mile was dancing.
Barefoot not only writes and performs his songs, also, he owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (found in most stores on Grand Cayman). They have also branched over to The Bahamas, where one among 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’. He also sings about Cayman current affairs and wrote ‘The Gay Cruise Liner Song’ following the visit from a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated that this Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, which had been written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although I have been incapable of find this album or artist indexed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is complete without catching a show through the Barefoot Man. He are available on the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef may be the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
