While having your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure to attend a show through the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came into this world in Germany (or Austria, dependant upon the source) but is now the maximum amount of 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 and also 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’, you would already know Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ and is also singing within the background while Location de Villa grand caïman was dancing.
Barefoot not merely 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 to The Bahamas, where among his albums was in 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 Ship Song’ 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 incapable of 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 with the Reef Hotel every Tuesday and Thursday night. The Reef is the only 100% beach front hotel on Grand Cayman.
