Irvin’s spirit lives on at Feld Entertainment® in bigger-than-life dreams and the tireless pursuit to make them come true.

His earnings led to the opening of a drug store in Washington D.C., where he became adept at selling records. Next, he opened a chain of record stores and started producing records and live concerts.
