 John Gilbert originally studied classical music for 6 years with private lessons in New Jersey and New York.  At the tender ages of 10, 11, and 12 years old, John’s aptitude in piano lead him to perform at Carnegie Recital Hall in New York City.  This endowment honored his diligence and passion which categorized him as a master pianist placing first in competitions amongst students throughout NY, New Jersey and Connecticut. Successively, at age 18, John commenced to become a full time musician. In the mid-nineties, John evolved his musical talent by integrating an interactive and comedic show known as a Dueling Pianist, fusing rock, R&B classics, and comedic routines.  For over 35 years, John has engaged in a wide variety of music as a solo performer, duo, trio and full band. Presently, John performs in downtown Seattle at Sullivan’s Steakhouse with a local and renowned jazz saxophonist.

Special Guests in attendance include 6 Miss Universe Organization titleholders representing Idaho, Montana, and Washington at the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageant.
