Felix Hernandez

Felix has been active in events promotion, radio, and media/marketing consulting since 1985. He’s built a clientele and partnerships with major entertainment centers, radio stations, media production companies, ad agencies, concert producers, major and independent record companies and record producers in New York and other markets.

In 1991, Felix created the Rhythm Revue Dance Party in New York City. This event is held at the famous Roseland Ballroom as well as other major venues throughout the metro area. For 24 years, Felix’s dance party has drawn over 3,000 people for sold-out events every month.

Felix also created and hosts Rhythm Revue, New York’s first radio show devoted to classic R&B and soul music. Now in its 29th year, Rhythm Revue is heard every Saturday on WBGO-FM. Felix’s show was also on 98.7 KISS-FM in NYC, and WTJM (Jammin 105), also in NYC. Felix was part of Sirius/XM’s first team of programmers, where he developed several music channels including classic R&B and classic Top 40.

Between 1989 and 1995, Felix created and produced BluesStage, a weekly live blues, classic rock and R&B series that was distributed by NPR to 200 of its stations nationwide. The show’s hosts were Tony-winner (the late) Ruth Brown and film director/actor Melvin Van Peebles.

Felix has dedicated much of his time to fundraising events, including a dance to raise funds for Haiti earthquake and Sandy hurricane relief. He has also developed a merit scholarship fund, which began awarding scholarships in 2012.

Felix lives in New York City with his wife and children.
