While getting your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure to attend a show by the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came into this world in Germany (or Austria, based on the source) but is currently all the a part of the Cayman Islands as much locals. They have lived and played there since 1971 after a time 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. When you have seen the film ‘The Firm’, you would have often heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is singing from the background while logements plage de sept mille was dancing.
Barefoot not only 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 in the market to The Bahamas, where among his albums is in the most notable 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’ after the visit with a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated that the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, which was written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although We have been not able to find this album or artist placed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is complete without catching a show through the Barefoot Man. He is available at The Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is the only 100% beachfront hotel on Grand Cayman.
