Reggae Sumfest’s Joe Takes On A New ‘Balanced’ Lifestyle

Published:| July 11, 2018 | Stephanie Lyew/Gleaner Writer
Josef Bogdanovich, CEO – Downsound Records, has adopted a more balanced lifestyle to do what he needs to get things done.
Balance seems to be the key to Josef ‘Joe’ Bogdanovich’s youthful energy, as he has adopted a more holistic approach to life. As the principal of Reggae Sumfest and Downsound Entertainment, Bogdanovich has had to reassess his lifestyle, especially as his schedule becomes full this time of year as the staging of the largest festival in the island approaches.

“When you travel the world, you see all sorts of people, and get to observe how some persons enjoy life more than others – it is not a question of money or poverty,” said Bogdanovich.

He added, “It’s a perspective – how you treat one another; more essentially, how you treat yourself. As you get more experienced, you just learn how important health is because with a sound body and a sound mind, you have more fun and more fun is what life is about.”

The business tycoon said that while in college, he was swayed towards eastern philosophy, which is a diverse body of ideas centred on understanding the process of the universe. According to Bogdanovich, although it was hard to understand Confucianism, he grasped that the key lesson was about maintaining a balance.

“And Jamaicans and Rastafarians always talk about balance; and in entertainment, it means a lot of different things,” he said. “For a deejay, balance means let me talk balance, but in terms of holistic health, it means to be able to get the ying and the yang – the left side and right of your brain, the unconscious and subconscious; everything, including emotions, in order.”

CHANGING LIFESTYLE

The Downsound CEO endured losing his partner three years ago, and although he mourned privately, it has had an obvious effect on the way he views life. He expressed that when an individual experiences an accident, or some type of misfortune, then a different perceptive arises.

“It may be cliche, but it is true – when a person is younger they think they are infallible, with so much energy and exceptional amount of hormones (not that I don’t have a tonne of that), but what’s happened is that I can change my body and habits to become more youthful-looking,” he said.

He says this involves his daily routine that always includes at least 45 minutes in the gym – this is after breakfast, and joking around with his seven-year-old son, where he always has a bowl of rice ball cereal and almond milk.

“Exercise is critical. You should do it every day so you can work harder, last longer and clear your mind. This then makes it easier to do the work, but sometimes it is hard because I don’t have the time to exercise and as a result, it takes me a lot longer to get things done and I don’t have as much patience.”

He admitted that the Reggae Sumfest period makes him slightly negligent with his exercise routine. “I am a little sloppy with the stress from just planning the show,” he said.

During the planning and execution stages of the festival, it becomes a lot more challenging, as it poses a change in his sleeping and eating habits. Rather than getting up at four in the morning, Bogdanovich says he is getting to bed at that hour.

“Worse than junk food is eating food late and going to bed right after. That’s how you put on the weight. You are what you eat. You have to find balance.”

It’s easy to get consumed by the humdrum of a packed workday, paying bills, meeting company executives and fulfilling endless responsibilities, so much so that personal health and caring gets forgotten. But Bogdanovich says with his balanced lifestyle, he is finding more happiness to wake another day, even as the festival presents longer days and eventful nights.

Close to 300 security personnel for music festival

July 10, 2018

Organisers of Reggae Sumfest say there will not be any major increase in the number of police personnel for its Friday and Saturday night shows at the Catherine Hall Stadium this year.

“We are using just about the same or a little bit more (police officers) than last year,” Robin Russell, who is in charge of security, told the WESTERN STAR. “Sumfest has never really had a security problem, and we don’t foresee any issues, especially with less crime in and around Montego Bay.”

According to Russell, the Area One police headquarters usually handles the police deployment with approximately 130 per night, who are selected from the four parishes.

“Anywhere from 100 to 150 security officers will be deployed at the venue per night,” he said.

For the events prior to the two main nights, about 20 police officers will be assigned to each.

The one-week reggae and dancehall music festival is set to unfold in the western resort city of Montego Bay from July 15 to 21.

It will be held under the extended state of public emergency, which organisers had earlier indicated would not affect the regular early morning closing hours of the live shows.

Hermine Shaw serving up good food at Sumfest

Reggae Sumfest is much more than just the entertainment and limelight for many people like Hermine Shaw of St James.

Shaw will tell you that the food is also equally one of the biggest highlights of the ‘Greatest Reggae Show on Earth’.

For the past 26 years, Shaw has been at the helm of homestyle cooking on the main nights of the summer festival held at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay.

Her food stall, branded under the household name ‘Hermine Homestyle’, is a godsend for the thousands of local and international patrons who come out each year looking to chow down on Jamaican mouthwatering dishes.

“My cooking is homestyle, and I do everything like rice and peas, brown stew, curry stew peas, oxtail, ackee and salt fish, salt mackerel, soup, shrimp, conch, and more,” Shaw told the WESTERN STAR.

“People look forward to me every year because they know my stall and know that I cook nothing but good and tasty food. I have people from Canada that come every year for them oxtail,” she added.

Shaw explained that last year’s staging was one of the best as she had more customers than she was able to provide service for.

A second stall

No doubt that she is now looking forward to the upcoming staging, and she has brought in her son in to operate a second stall.

“I came to Reggae Sumfest off of Sunsplash, and over the years until now, I have always lived good with the promoters. I work with their system and do my business, and I was able to put both my daughter and son through school and college, assist my grandchildren …,” said Shaw, who is also a taxi operator.

“So Reggae Sumfest did a lot for me. It keeps me alive,

motivates me, and I plan for it every year. I appreciate the promoters, and I thank them very much. I thank them a lot for what they have done for me and what I do for myself,” she added.
