As bandleader and arranger of The Gil Thompson Trio  and The
Gil Thompson Jazz Duo, Gil has appeared in numerous venues in
the tri-state area, including the Republican National Convention Dinner
Cruise, an extended engagement at Cape May’s prestigious Pelican
Club, numerous performances in Atlantic City, along with countless
public,  private, and corporate  engagements in the Philadelphia area,
Delaware, and the Southern New Jersey shore. Gil also appears in
special solo performances at wedding services and receptions, social
functions, local music festivals and senior care facilities. With a wide
variety of tunes, ranging in style from jazz classics and love songs to
Latin dance music, all performed with his own unique arrangements,
Gil Thompson has something to please an audience of mixed ages and
musical tastes.

In performance, as soloist or with ensemble,  Gil is equally comfortable
on acoustic piano or on his portable professional digital piano. His
portable instrument  is very well suited for venues where no piano is
available or where space is at a premium. Gil is a seasoned full-time
performer with over 30 years of experience, and is also able to
function as Master of Ceremonies.

Gil Thompson has led a diverse musical career as a solo pianist,
arranger, teacher and bandleader with ensembles of various styles
including traditional jazz, contemporary jazz, Top 40, R&B, and Latin
music. Gil began studying classical piano at the age of 4.  He attended
Rowan University where he studied music education, classical piano
performance with internationally renowned pianist Veda Zuponcic, and
jazz performance with prominent jazz musicians Denis DiBlasio, Ron
Thomas, and Gerald Price. Gil’s pianistic style is a blend of his classical
and jazz training with his current interests in Latin and Caribbean
