While obtaining your Cayman Islands holiday, be sure to attend a show from the ‘Barefoot Man’. George Nowak (the Barefoot Man), came into this world in Germany (or Austria, dependant upon the source) but is already the maximum amount of a part of the Cayman Islands as many 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 mainly a risqué parody set to calypso, reggae, country or pop music. For those who have seen the film ‘The Firm’, you would then have often heard Barefoot’s music. He wrote the song ‘Money, Money, Money’ which is singing from the background while Location de condo île caïman was dancing.
Barefoot not only writes and performs his own songs, he also owns the record company that records and sells his CDs (located in most stores on Grand Cayman). They have also branched to The Bahamas, where certainly one of his albums was in the best 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 from 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.
