Rob Fernandez, New York City Club Icon, Has Left Us.

Rob Fernandez, NewYork City club icon, passed away. He has always been a friend to Beachmonkey, and has shown nothing but the highest regard for me as I pestered him in my quest for stories about New York club scene and the Winter Music Conference in Miami. If i could describe him in three words, they would be “grace under pressure” – ever gracious, direct when need be, and consistently a joy to reunite with, time and time again. Our condolences to his family and friends.

In an article for THUMP, Paul Raffaele said the following: “He told me every day I could be better. His words were hard to hear sometimes, but they shot to your core, and you were a better person after hearing them. He taught me everything I know. He bailed me out of a few really bad situations without batting an eyelash or giving an eye roll (alright, maybe one eye roll).” For the full article, click here.
