Elmer is a rare gem and NC’s foremost jazz pianist. He is often accompanied by his wife Lori who plays the flute. Sometimes he performs on the soprano sax and is accompanied by a pianist. Elmer, whether alone or paired with other musicians, is great for classy wedding receptions and pre-reception gatherings. Since the mid '60s, Elmer Gibson has been writing, arranging, and performing music around the world with some of jazz’s finest musicians. When not playing with his own group, he’s been performing and recording with many local and nationally known jazz artists. Gibson has toured the U.S. performing at the Newport Jazz Festival, the Berkeley Jazz Festival, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston SC, the San Jose Music Festival, the Pleasure Island Jazz, Blues and Seafood Festival in NC, Bel Cher Festival in Asheville NC, and The New Bern Jazz and Blues Festival in New Bern NC.
