While obtaining your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure you attend a show with the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), was created in Germany (or Austria, depending on the source) but is now the maximum amount of a part of the Cayman Islands several locals. They have lived and played there since 1971 after a period of island hopping which included Hawaii and also 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’, then you would have often heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is also singing inside the background while Beach club hôtel grand caïman was dancing.
Barefoot not simply writes and performs his songs, he also owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (seen in most stores on Grand Cayman). He has also branched to The Bahamas, where among his albums is at 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 Ship Song’ right after the visit with a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated that the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, which had been written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although I have got been not able to find this album or artist indexed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is finished without catching a show through 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.
