Steve Weingart

Steve’s parents recognized his gift for music when he was only three years old. They felt confident that he should follow a musical path in his formative years, so they sought out the best piano teacher locally, in Dayton, Ohio. He studied everything from classical to baroque to contemporary styles under the watchful eye of Audley Wasson. His years of study continued through out high school, when at the end, Steve performed a senior recital. It was during his younger years that Steve met his future brother-in-law, who introduced him to the music of Chicago, Weather Report, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
