Born & bred in NYC, DJ Neil Armstrong turned his love of music and hiphop culture into a career that has allowed him to play music for the masses all over the world – from small 100 person venues to large scale music festivals with thousands in attendance.
Neil initially gained notoriety for his mixtape projects, which showcased his DJ skills as well as his vast eclectic knowledge of music.
Through social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) Neil has found a new way to connect with his audience, sharing his travel experience through the cultural unifier of food.
“Dinner & A Mixtape” is the name of a worldwide series of events hosted by DJ Neil Armstrong, sharing his love of music & good food. Started in 2013, they have been held in New York, New Jersey, Hong Kong, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin Texas, Portland Oregon, Seattle, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Manila Philippines.
The idea is simple – partnering up with great restaurants around the world, Dinner & A Mixtape provides the opportunity to enjoy music and food together in a very unique setting. Often the restaurant will create a special menu just for the event, and the soundtrack is provided by a new installment in DJ Neil Armstrong’s Mixtape Library. Part eating experience, part listening session. The food nourishes the body, and music feeds the soul.
