Gilbert is the creator and host of Spontaneous Combustion, a live entertainment event all dressed up as a game show. Bands take turns playing songs on the spot, with no rehearsal or practice. A large roulette wheel selects the song topic and the musicians choose from their repertoire some song that touches on that topic. Twists and turns along the way make for all kinds of fun.

Spontaneous Combustion gives bands a chance to show their knowledge of a wide variety of songs, truly entertain without a lot of planning, and provide audience members with the chance to join in the fun. You are┬ápart of┬áSpontaneous Combustion, whether in the band or in the audience. Cheer on your favorites, holler out suggestions, boo the judges–it’s all in a night’s fun!
