Steve Weingart


For a young Steve Weingart growing up in Dayton, Ohio, the music of fusionists Chick Corea, Joe Zawinul, and Herbie Hancock wooed him as an aspiring young pianist. You might say that it derailed the classical music prodigy, who studied at the College Conservancy of Music in Cincinnati, and placed him on a track that would lead him to becoming a sought after touring and performing keyboardist for top fusion and rock bands such as the Dave Weckl Band, the infamous El Grupo, Steve Lukather, Chaka Khan, Simon Phillips, Marco Mendoza, and many others. Although his career is on a fast track, somehow he’s been able to keep a level head by not forgetting his roots and approaching his musical career with appreciation and humility. But, don’t let his under-spoken personality deceive you; this man can play. He is most capable in almost any musical genre, but fusion is where his heart lies. His latest solo fusion release Dark Blue Dream is a collection of progressive fusion compositions that will captivate you. In short, he makes it all sound too easy. Inside MusiCast welcomes a most talented and gracious Steve Weingart.
