Steve Weingart, from Dayton, Ohio began his musical career playing piano at age three. In his formative years of classical study, Steve was honored with numerous awards.
As Steve explored various types of music, he was strongly influenced by the music of jazz masters Josef Zawinul, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, and Red Garland. This began the evolution of the jazz musician he is today.
In 1984 Steve was awarded a full scholarship at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music to further his study of jazz. It was during this period that Steve's writing and playing abilities were brought to the forefront. His mastery of the keyboard and programming expertise quickly thrust him into the thick of the Cincinnati music scene.
In 1994 Steve decided on a change of scenery and moved to Los Angeles CA, where he has found his way with many new musical experiences. Steve is now based in Burbank, California and along with his busy local playing schedule, he is touring worldwide with the Dave Weckl Band supporting the Band's latest recordings "Transistion" and "Perpetual Motion".
