I have 30 years of experience as a professional pianist and an extensive repertoire of over 800 songs from classical to contemporary. As a full-time musician working in Los Angeles since 2001, I have maintained long term residencies at luxury hotels, restaurants and shopping malls. Prior to Covid shutting down the restaurant and hospitality industry, I had been a resident pianist at Hotel Bel-Air for 4 years. Additionally, I played piano for all kinds of events including charity galas, corporate events, weddings, birthdays & holiday parties. With the pandemic putting the pause on most live events, I’ve been doing live stream concerts and have been performing live for virtual events (over Zoom) multiple times per week. (See more specifics about virtual events below.)
My wife and business partner, Kim and I pride ourselves in providing top level service to our clients. I bring my lifetime of experience as a professional musician and Kim brings her business acumen and attention to detail to every client we work with. We work with you to determine the best music for the event. Whether you have specific music in mind or would like suggestions and guidance, we will make sure the music fits the mood. My extensive repertoire includes:
We are experienced in working with all kinds of clients including professional event planners, production companies, entertainment booking companies, DJs, caterers, corporate clients, celebrity and high-profile clientele. Bottom line, we can work within whatever professional parameters may be required.
About 80% of the events I play are solo piano. I don’t sing as a performer, but I’m great at facilitating sing-alongs and creating a fun party atmosphere. Of course, I have some fantastic singers that I work with and I accompany featured singers at events whether it is a wedding or a big gala. We can also create a “piano-oke” (karaoke with live piano accompaniment) party which is a lot of fun. (See more specifics about piano-oke below.) I am honored to work with some of the best musicians in LA and can create ensembles that include:
We can also assist with your equipment needs. We can provide:

“As a venue owner and caterer I have recommended Jeremy on several occassions to entertain at client events. In this type of relationship my concern goes beyond Jeremy being extremely talented…he is also reliable and excellent with interacting with the host / event planner. Bottom line is, if anyone asks me for a referral for a pianist…I always recommend Jeremy.”

When planning a wedding, most people hope to incorporate exceptional touches that will set their special day apart.

I will help your friend shine with my live piano accompaniment.

Jeremy played for the cocktail hour at our wedding reception. Having a live pianist was one pet-item that was very important to me, and he exceeded expectations. He was professional, prompt, and an amazing player. Everyone commented to us how much they enjoyed the music. JeThe only thing I would do differently if we did it again would be to have him play two hours instead of one; it was a real highlight of the evening. I absolutely recommend working with Jeremy.
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 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!

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!

As a professional pianist and speaker, I have the experience and skills to level up and liven up your virtual meeting or event. We have invested in professional equipment for virtual events including microphone, audio mixer, webcams and lights. My live piano music is sure to enhance your event and I can collaborate with your host or emcee to make them pop. I can also assist with emcee functions by introducing other speakers or provide transitions to event elements. Here are some ways music can be incorporated into your virtual event:
I run a large business networking group in Los Angeles. Since we have been in a lock down due to COVID we couldn’t have an in person event. BUT we really wanted to put on a spectacular event for the group. That is where Jeremy Weinglass came in. Jeremy was hired to be our live performance musician but it turned out he really helped run the whole show. He’s such a professional , the way he carries the show and steps in when needed, and engages with the audience.
The best part of Jeremy is his musical talent. He is one of the most amazing pianists I’ve ever heard. He can play requests by looking them up and playing new songs on the spot. It is simply an amazing talent.
We are very grateful to get the opportunity to work with Jeremy and look forward to many more events.
I can’t recommend Jeremy enough. He and his manager, Kim, were proactive, friendly, professional, talented, and joyful to work with. I was planning a Celebration of Life Zoom service for my family, and not only did Jeremy play beautifully (with a perfect setup for an online event!), but they helped to refine the agenda with music beautifully woven throughout the service and guiding the pacing of the whole event. His broad skill enabled us to choose many pieces that felt personal to my family, and the event went really well largely thanks to their flexibility and expertise. I hope to work with them again.
Jeremy has performed for us on many occasions. His music makes our events so much more inviting and inclusive. His choice of music when making introductions, or providing entertainment for the whatever the occasion maybe, is so appropriate and pulls the event together. He is an incredibly talented musician, with a warmth and kindness that rolls over into his performance during the event.
Whether live or virtual you can guarantee on a professional, thoroughly entertaining performance that brings much needed joy and humor when appropriate. His ability to adapt to any event shows his talent for handling all situations.
Jeremy, as a person, is a delight to work with, definitely becomes one of the team, has an uncanny ability to improvise, again adding so much to the event. I cannot praise Jeremy highly enough and we have been so fortunate to be able to avail ourselves of his services. He has certainly made these days of everything virtual so much brighter! It is without ANY hesitation that I highly recommend Jeremy Weinglass – he is not only the consummate professional, he is also a genuinely nice person!

Jeremy Weinglass is who you should hire, period. If you’re looking for the most joyful and professional pianist for your event? Look no further, honestly. We have hired Jeremy ten years in row now for a very large (entertainment industry) Christmas party I help to produce. With 200 people plus, Jeremy fields requests and really is the heart beat of the party. People sing at the top of their lungs, while he plays pretty much any song you can think of. Jeremy has a microphone set up that we love, it’s discreet but very powerful, it’s not tacky is what I mean. I always have people asking me for his information days after the event so that they can hire him for their events. He couldn’t be nicer, his wife Kim couldn’t be nicer to book through too. They hooked us up with the piano rental company and tuner as well where we got a great deal. Normal, very cool, super professional, no stress, big smiles, powerful artist, beyond good, through and through. 5 stars x 10!
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.
For over a decade, I have 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, I prepare in advance by reviewing the show flow and script to determine the perfect 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, I often never leave the piano to ensure the flow of the program remains uninterrupted. My years of experience in this arena have given me a great ability to follow cues, adjust on the fly and improvise. In addition to playing solo piano as needed throughout the event, I can also accompany featured vocalists performing for the event (as shown in the video above) or assemble an ensemble of musicians.
“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.”
– Erick Weiss, President Honeysweet Productions
If you’re throwing a party and looking for something a little different, we offer something – we call “Piano-oke.” It’s like karaoke but instead of a recorded track, I’m providing live piano accompaniment to the singers. It’s a ton of fun and creates a very engaging party experience. The video above includes some clips from a fabulous 50th birthday celebration that we did a couple years ago. For this type of party, Kim usually comes along to assist with the lyrics. Get in touch with us to see what kind of magic we can create!
“Jeremy created piano bar karaoke for us last weekend for a 50th birthday, and it was an absolute blast! From the accompaniment to the technical aspects he was a pro. His song list is extensive. He can do it all, from rock classics, to Broadway, to brand new new hits! It was astounding, and he accommodated obscure requests from our group. He is excellent at reading the room, and helping the flow of the party. He was such a sport with our silliness. Looking forward to working with him and the wonderful Kim Weinglass again someday!”
– Katie Thomas, Encino

– John Halcyon Styn, Hugnation
I am excited to be forging a path that combines my two greatest passions on the same stage to inspire audiences by delivering “Keynote Concerts.” I have been a Toastmaster since 2013 and earned my Distinguished Toastmaster Award (DTM) in 2018. I have been a featured speaker for a variety of organizations including Rotary clubs, Kiwanis clubs, retirement communities, Big Brothers Big Sisters and UCP Wheels for Humanity. I have been the featured performer at various corporate events performing on the piano while also providing entertaining banter with the event host. I am passionate about sharing life lessons, communication tools and inspiration through the lens of music in a unique and engaging way.
Some of my speaking topics include:
“Jeremy delivered an incredible keynote filled with great messages and music. Our group truly appreciated Jeremy sharing with us his message and experience. We learned new things, perspectives and how to recognize opporTUNEities. The meditation at the end of his keynote to “unlock our inner musician” was great and it definitely inspired us to connect in this “grand symphony of life.” Jeremy is a pleasure to work with and definitely one of the few talented speakers I know and have worked with that connects with his audience flawlessly and sincerely. His expertise and ability to tailor his talks to any audience musically is amazing. I will definitely reach out to him again in the future and highly recommend him for your events.”
