"Soft Classic Jazz with a Modern Feel and a Latin Edge"

This is how the Gil Thompson Trio describes their interpretation of
jazz standards, latin jazz, and dance favorites. The southern New
Jersey based trio is a combination that is very well suited to the soft
lights and romantic atmosphere of the upscale restaurants in which
they perform regularly. With a wide variety of tunes, from “Satin Doll”
to “Oye Como Va”, all played in their own unique style, the Gil
Thompson Trio has something to please an audience of mixed ages
and musical tastes.

For more than a decade the Trio, which consists of Gil Thompson on
piano, Pete McCarthy -  bass, and Jay Fisher - drums, has been a
regular at numerous restaurants and inns around the tri-state area,
including an extended engagement at Vineland's Cafe Centro. For
years the band has been a part of Cape May NJ's celebrated jazz
scene, and developed a large following at the prestigious Pelican
Club. The Gil Thompson Trio has over ten years of experience in
performance at countless wedding receptions, cocktail parties,
private social affairs, and corporate events. In the year 2000, the
band had the honor of being chosen as entertainer of the
Republican National Convention Dinner Cruise. With their extensive
individual musical training and state-of-the-art equipment, the trio of
seasoned musicians is completely self-contained for any event and
is also experienced at functioning as Master of Ceremonies.
