While getting your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure to attend a show through the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), was born in Germany (or Austria, dependant upon the source) but has become all the a part of the Cayman Islands as much 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. 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 inside the background while location villa Iles Caïmans was dancing.
Barefoot not only writes and performs his songs, he also owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (present in most stores on Grand Cayman). He has also branched out to The Bahamas, where among his albums is at the Top Ten for 4 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’ right after the visit by a Gay Cruise. One reviewer stated how the Barefoot Man won a Grammy Award for ‘Gone Coconutz’, that was written after 85dexrpky devastating Hurricane Ivan, although We have been not able to find this album or artist listed in the Grammy Archives.
No Cayman Islands holiday is complete without catching a show from the Barefoot Man. He are available at The Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef will be the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
