“When Westfield wanted to a hire a pianist for the center, we wanted someone youthful, vibrant, and able to engage the audience — we found all of that in Jeremy Weinglass. Jeremy was kind enough to help select a piano for the center. We hired him to perform regularly every weekend as well as for special events and he was always well dressed and would make conversation with the guests and retailers. Jeremy’s talents are unmatched — he can play anything from Coldplay to Chopin; he often takes audience requests and can play by ear. Our audience was so engaged that guests would move furniture themselves and stay for hours just to listen to him play. It was like nothing I’d ever seen in a shopping mall — Jeremy took it to another level. I can’t very well recommend Jeremy without also mentioning how easy it was to work with his manager, Kim. They were a great team to work with, and I highly recommend them to anyone.”
– Tammy Billings, marketing director at Westfield Topanga Mall (where Jeremy played every weekend for three and a half years.)

Jeremy, having you play at our wedding was such an honor. Your ability to master ‘our songs’ so quickly was amazing, and your talent and passion during the ceremony and for our first dance added so much to our overall joy. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.
Jeremy was great – he helped us figure out what instruments to add to the piano (we settled on cello and viola). He also accommodated our special choices of music. And his original songs are beautiful. Absolutely hire him!
For my wedding ceremony I knew I wanted to have piano alone for the music. My mom, knowing me so well, had saved Jeremy’s card for years after she heard him playing at the Westfield mall during Christmas time. My mother has exceptional taste and is quite picky, so I trusted her and went with Jeremy without researching anyone else. I’m happy I did because from start to finish the process of planning was smooth, which for a bride is hard to come by at times. His wife Kim who runs Jeremy’s business helped me to book him quickly before the spot was filled and corresponded with me via e-mail and telephone to set up music choices and answer any questions I had. During this time she had a brand new baby to care for, but she worked around my schedule, which I did not expect because caring for a newborn is a full time job alone. The day of the wedding was like the vision I had in my head and Jeremy’s talent for playing the piano made all the special moments fall into place. He arrived on time and he set up so smoothly that I didn’t even see him slip in. I was honored to be able to have such a wonderful musician play for all my family and friends on such a special day. I highly recommend him not only because he is so talented but also because he is so down to earth and genuinely kind.
Jeremy played at my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and I couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests were commenting on his beautiful music, and I would definitely recommend him! He played traditional songs, as well as more contemporary songs–so he catered to all ages of our guests. He was so easy to work with and it was a pleasure to have him as part of our event!

“I hired Jeremy to play for a holiday party with 50 of our closest friends and it truly was the perfect finishing touch! He was prompt and professional and was perfectly executing all of our holiday favorites. At one point, we had twelve of us singing the twelve days of Christmas with our karaoke machine and Jeremy playing along. I would hire him over and over and highly recommend him to anyone. His manager was also super prompt in booking and in answering emails and questions.”

Jeremy has developed a forte for performing at charity galas where the aim is to entertain, tug at heartstrings, and ultimately raise money for great causes. For an event of this type, Jeremy prepares in advance by reviewing the show flow and script to determine the perfect pieces for pieces of music to play for speakers and honorees as they enter and exit the stage as well as transitions and other key moments during the show. During the show, he often never leaves the piano to ensure the flow of the program remains uninterrupted. His years of experience in this arena give him a great ability to adjust on the fly, follow cues, and improvise as needed. In addition to playing solo piano as needed throughout the event, he can also accompany featured vocalists who may be performing for the event.
“Jeremy Weinglass is not only a total professional, he is a creative master and an incredible musician. I have had the pleasure of hiring Jeremy for numerous Honeysweet events ranging from small private events to large high ticket non-profit galas. He has played classical, pop, jazz and big band music for me. He has performed his own compositions – most recently for a very moving “in memorium” moment for Stop Cancer. He is always impeccably dressed, on time and well prepared. I highly recommend this very gifted artist.”

Jeremy Weinglass’ “Odyssey” is a captivating and sensuous tale of the longing for love fully expressed through a synergy of live music, dramatic dance, martial art, acrobatics, and aerial dance.
Sojourn into the depth of the human experience as it awakens and unfolds across a 12-part live music and dance production. It portrays the longing and fulfillment of love as it relates to the mood, music and tone during the month-by-month evolution of a calendar year. With original music composed by Jeremy Weinglass, choreography by modern dancer Michelle “Star” LaVon, and direction by Stephen Hues, “Odyssey” opens at the beginning of the year with a village girl longing to meet her one true love. When a sailor’s ship docks after many months at sea (carrying with him the shadows haunting him from sea), the two meet and instantly fall in love. As the story unfolds, traversing in movement and fluidity guided by powerful musical expression, enchanting creatures, mystical experiences, and the possibility of loss coalesce as the couple journeys to find love and understanding of themselves.
Be entranced into a realm where dramatic modern dance, graceful-yet-electrical aerial sequences, delicious nymphs, a frolicsome stilt-walker, and a dark warrior taunt and delight. Brilliantly beautiful lighting highlights the events as they happen, intensifying the experience. The musicians themselves, fading in and out of the set, punctuate the moment, exposing the beauty, fragility, and strength of the spirit. Jeremy’s artistry is illustrated most clearly where composition and vision bloom to life within a beguiling tale expressed through the union of live music and dramatic modern dance.
“Awed and inspired by Jeremy Weinglass’ production last night. I was so moved I had trouble having conversations afterward. Bravo and THANK YOU to all involved.”
– John Halcyon Styn, Hugnation
