I was also the Official DJ at Jed's LookOut
during the 1984 Worlds Fair.
I was also voted DJ of the year in
1985 by a group of my fellow DJ's.
Where it all Started
Eric's love of Sound Systems and Music started at a very early
age. At the age of 10, I was taking apart my Mom and Dads
stereos. By the age of 12, I was able to reassemble them. My
first receiver was a Sanyo 4 Channel Quadraphonic System. I set
up the front room as a studio. (My parents weren't happy about
that!) The speakers sucked so I Built my own speakers from
components bought at Radio Shack. I can still remember the first
speaker box I built.
How did I get the name "Doctor Disco"
Somewhere in 1977 Donna Summer had Lunch with a
number of New Orleans Club DJ's. Me, Al Paez, Ray
Walters, Henry Augustus, RAK, Willy "Wild Willy" Ladner,
Rusty Abney and a few more I can't remember.
Everyone was introducing themselves to Donna and Wild Willy was
right before me..
Donna asked me my name, and I said Eric - Just Eric, I don't have a DJ name like Wild Willy. She said something to the effect of, how about Doc.
Doctor Disco.. and the rest is history!!!
Article about how Club DJ's are changing the record industry.... 1979
DJ mixing at its most amazing has a subliminal effect on people's minds, and the best of the best like Eric "Doctor Disco" Miller in New Orleans, Louisiana is one who presents a seamless flow where transitions are not obvious, which unlike radio, suspends judgment on songs and instead creates an atmosphere
that promotes crowd unity. His masterful transitions match those of any club DJ in New York, San Francisco or LA. It's time record companies recognize the impact club DJ's have on the record industry...
Billboard Magazine - Disco top 100 - 1979
The gist of the article - It was about how Club DJ's are selling records, even in small clubs... I was one of about 20 small club DJ's highlighted in the article... They were emphasizing that's it's not just Jellybean Benetiz, Richie
Kaczor & Nicky Saino (Studio 54), Larry Levan (Paradise Garage), Mark Kamins (Danceteria), Steve Fabus (I-Beam San Fran), etc.. but DJ's in smaller clubs all across the country...
My Connection to KC and the Sunshine Band
In 1973, At the age of 14, I worked for a company called
KOEHN Electronics on Laurel Street. Terry (the owner) was
so good at building Mixing Consoles that TK Records hired
him to build a custom mixer for their new studio in Halliela
Florida. We all went to Florida to install the mixer at the
studio where K.C and the Sunshine Band recorded it's first
I help build the Mixing Console that KC recorded his multi platinum Disco Hits on like Shake, Shake Your Booty.
