While owning your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure you attend a show by the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came into this world in Germany (or Austria, according to the source) but has become the maximum amount of an element of the Cayman Islands as many locals. He has lived and played there since 1971 after a time period of island hopping which included Hawaii along with the Bahamas.
His songs are mostly a risqué parody set to calypso, reggae, country or pop music. When you have seen the film ‘The Firm’, then you would often hear Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is also singing from the background while îles Caïmanes locations sept mile plage was dancing.
Barefoot not only writes and performs their own songs, he also 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 one of his albums is in the most notable 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 Ship Song’ right after the visit by a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated that the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, that has been written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although I have got been unable to find this album or artist placed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is done without catching a show through the Barefoot Man. He can be obtained with the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is definitely the only 100% beachfront hotel on Grand Cayman.
