• Who is Erv: Erv Schmidt is the owner and founder of Atlantic Coast Entertainment. He has been in the entertainment field since 1980. Erv's interest in spinning started right out of high school when he started working at very popular local area hotspot and became friends with the DJ there. Shortly after that, his mom seeing his interest in being a DJ, surprised him and bought him his first pair of used turntables (Technics SL-1300MK2's). Erv spent many hours mixing and perfecting his style, but it wasn't until he got to work with Chris Walsh (from Kiss FM's KISS Club before his MTV Party To Go days) at the Atlantis II in Misquamicut Beach RI, that really made him strive to be the best! Erv spent close to 7 years entertaining in Hampton Rhodes Virginia from 1990 to 1997. Hampton Rhodes, Virginia consists of a group of cities to include Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Hampton, Suffolk, Portsmouth, and Newport News. He got to work with many fine DJ / Entertainers like DJ Larry D, Rod Francisco, Chris Caldwell and Johnny Flex, all of Astro Disc Jockeys, DJ Robin and Joey Joe of the Latin 5 Productions, DJ Andy, DJ Doug a.k.a. DJ Shake and Peanut of the Heartbreak Alley. To his credit, Erv won the first ever, 1997 "Best of the Best" DJ Competition held at Donzi's Night Club in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Erv is owner and operator of Pro Edit Studios since January 1, 1998, where he and DJ Larry D remixed the very first tracks of DJ Larry D's extremely successful remix service, Altered Traxx. Since that time Erv has worked on building his company, Atlantic Coast Entertainment. He looks forward to serving you and your special event needs.
