 “Not only is he a terrific pianist, but his choice of material is absolutely first rate- some truly great songs, very well played”  PETER DUCHIN

“You’re clearly a talented guy”

JOE FAY – WNEW Metromedia Radio

 

“Completing the recordings in eight hours was “a feat,” says Euphoria owner David Sokol, who was impressed by Wiest’s performance. “The man knows every tune, he knows music history,” Sokol says. “He’s a serious musician and ‘serious musician’ is the highest compliment I can pay . . . I’ve heard the greatest musicians in the world, and Stan is excellent.”

Dick Robinson, host of WHLI/1100 AM’s “American Standards by the Sea,” is also impressed by Wiest’s piano stylings. “His album is a nice reflection of the American Songbook,” he says. “I love that a song like ‘Night and Day’ is just piano. No trio, no big band, no singer. Stan does a wonderful job.”    DICK ROBINSON WHLI

“AMERICAN STANDARDS BY THE SEA”

 

“It is as beautiful of piano playing as one would ever want to hear. It’s absolutely delicious. It’s gorgeous.  Wonderful renditions of these songs. Each and every one a classic song. And you do a beautiful job, a masterful job on them. I want to compliment you on absolutely marvelous piano playing. A great great keepsake album. It  simply could not have been better. It really is a group of brilliantly played selections. It’s as good as it gets. And you have every right to be proud of it.”

Piano virtuoso Stan Wiest offers “Music You Will Love –Volume One:  Music To Drive By” – draws from the Great American Songbook and beyond; Wiest’s wonderful technique and flair for interpretation are front-and-center. A generous 17 tracks of solo piano and it lives up to its title.”

 

“Stan Wiest has the perfect touch for the American Songbook. You can recognize the melody because he cares about the composers. A delightful CD, one you’ll listen to many times.

You’re a delightful guest. You have something to say and you say it in a most interesting way.”

“Move over Clayderman…there’s a new kid  at the 88’s who not only tickles the ivories, but gives us 17 tracks of pure AMERICAN SONGBOOK pleasure. That “new kid” is Stan Wiest, a  piano wizard. Stan’s “MUSIC TO DRIVE BY” is  “pure piano”. My radio show audience love’s Stan!

STAN WIEST  MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT WEDDING REVIEWS ON  “THE  KNOT”

 

Posted by Kim M

We were so lucky to have Stan as the pianist at our wedding! His excellency shone through at our very intimate, Christmastime event. Can’t recommend his live jazz work enough. He was truly a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. My mother even called him the star of the show lol!

We were honored that Stan Wiest was able to be our pianist at our wedding. From start to finish his playing was magical. All of our guests ranted and raved about how professional and enchanting the music was. Stan exceeded our expectations and we would choose him time and time again. Thank you for a wonderful Christmas Wedding filled with music that only a talented pianist such as Stan could pull off. If you’re looking for a pianist for your wedding or big event, Stan is the man! Thanks again!

Posted by Jon F

We were lucky enough to book Stan Wiest as the piano player at our intimate COVID-era wedding reception, and his music single-handedly (double?) elevated the ambience to match the sense of celebration of a large, more formal wedding. Stan is a gentleman, a consummate professional, and, most importantly, an extremely talented solo pianist (for those who know the reference, think Carmen Cavallaro in musical style and dexterity). Stan played enjoyable classics and all our songs requests seamlessly from cocktail hour through to cake cutting with just a few short breaks. As a testament to his musical prowess, we requested the showstopper “Bumble Boogie” as the last song, and Stan performed it flawlessly after hours of playing. It was a privilege to have a musician of his caliber at our event, which makes it easy for us to recommend Stan Wiest to anyone looking to make their night “unforgettable.” A class act! You will not find better.

Stan arranged the music for my daughter’s wedding and my wife and I could not be happier with all that he provided. He, himself played piano during the cocktail hour and provide a string quartet for the church. The musicians and DJ for the affair were outstanding. Stan is a very professional and all around great person to work with…. No regrets.. The Best.. Great value for the money..

From our first contact to the end of the festivities, we couldn’t have asked for a better addition to our wedding than Stan. He was able to satisfy our desire for traditional music for the ceremony and upbeat dance music afterwards. In addition, he acted as MC and helped the event flow smoothly. Stan is definitely the whole package

Stan was an absolute delight. He took the time to learn 2 songs for our wedding ceremony and really knocked it out of the park. The ceremony wouldn’t have been as beautiful without Stan’s personal touch.

Excellent experience using Stan. Starting with the reasonable price, the flexibility and attention to detail. They deliver what they promise and more… last minute I requested Science themed backgrounds for the green screen… the ones I provided were not compatible so they worked diligently to customize them and somehow made it work and did not charge me for the extra work. A pleasure to work with… accommodating and I highly recommend them.

Working with Stan was the easiest and best decision we made while planning our wedding. Stan is very professional and easy to work with. His knowledge of not only music for ceremony and reception but also of wedding planning in general is unmatched. He has been in this business for a long time and it shows in the connections he has made and the service he is able to provide. For our wedding, Stan provided us with the most beautiful string quartet for our ceremony, the most amazing DJ and percussionist for our reception and he himself played piano at our cocktail hour. Not only was Stan the most professional and accessible out of all our our wedding vendors, he truly tries to connect with his brides on a more personal level and you don’t feel like just another client which is so important. Stan caters to the specifics of what you want for your wedding which was so important to us and he was able to deliver a truly unique musical selection to our preferences. We cannot say enough amazing things about Stan and hands down choosing him as your music vendor will be the best decision you make during the wedding planning process. Thank you Stan, for all you do and for making our wedding unforgettable!

Stan Wiest and his crew were excellent during our wedding. They made the process very laid back and we didn’t have to intervene at all. Also, huge props to Stan for learning a few Final Fantasy songs to play during the pre-ceremony. The songs I selected were also fairly difficult but he was able to handle task with ease. What a great musician! DJ and photo booth that were provided were also top notch! They made sure that everyone was dancing and there was no lull during the event. All things considered, Angela and I are extremely pleased with Stan Wiest Music and recommend him and his team to anyone looking for DJ/Music/Entertainment for the event.

Stan and DJ Ralph did a magnificent job performing at our wedding this past weekend. We could not have been happier. Stan is an amazing piano/keyboardist and the ceremony and cocktail music was so beautiful and romantic. He played all of our favorite songs. DJ Ralph was so much fun and everyone was tearing it up on the dance floor. All of my guest commented how much fun they had. Stan and Ralph were dressed to the nines. They were professional and receptive to our ideas and requests. We were so happy with our decision to use them at our wedding. Thank you Stan and Ralph xoxox Karen & John McHugh

Stan Wiest is awesome. He is such a friendly, down to earth guy. He’s quirky in a good way. He was very professional, accommodating, and most of all, talented. Stan and DJ Mike brought an energy and a sophistication to my wedding that exceeded my expectations. My wife Jillian and I were very happy. Plus, he lived around the corner from us so that was a big help too. DJ Mike played all the songs we requested and even sprinkled in some songs of his own choosing that fit our tastes and mood. DJ Mike knew I was an 80’s rock fan so he brought Jillian and me out to the dance floor and had everyone circle around us. It was really quiet since this was the beginning of the wedding. DJ Mike said we looked like a fun party couple and then he played “Any Way You Want It” by Journey. I started to dance and lip sync and everybody went nuts. It was funny and cool and unexpected. My wife thought I knew about it but I had no idea. Stan Wiest is great. I highly recommend them.

Stan did a phenomenal job ensuring the music selection for my wedding was executed as requested from myself and my beautiful wife. Stan played the piano during ceremony, cocktail hour and played all requests made during cocktail hour. The ceremony music was perfect as my wife walked down the isle to “Holy” by Florida Georgia line. Stan acted as the director for the band/DJ combination we had during the reception which was a wonderful balance between the two, honestly we couldn’t tell during some moments what song the band was playing and what song the DJ music was playing, Stan and the band were in fact that good! Lastly Stan’s attitude was wonderful and he was a pleasure to work with even with a change of venue 90 days away from the event and offered insight and solutions to help get us right on track! Stan Wiest Music IS the way to go and we will be going directly to Stan for any future music needs. Stan, thank you one last time from Myself & Carla!
