Born & raised in the Chippewa Valley, John Nielsen discovered the
guitar late in life, but quickly was leading a popular band and doing
over 50 shows a year. As the leader of the JFT Party Band, John
found a natural talent and passion for engaging an audience and
having fun. As a solo artist, he fills the room with the deep, full sound from a custom made 12-string guitar. His smooth vocals are matched to the hundreds of song selections in his library. Many times, he is joined on stage by other musicians and sometimes even guests from the audience. John hands out printed song selection sheets. The audience then selects and determines what selections are performed. This way each show is different and lead by the room. The PA that is used allows for clear definition of the guitar and vocals without the high volumes experienced by many of us in the past. John has performed for audiences as far away as Mexico, Tortola, Hawaii and Alaska. You can find details of his shows and schedules at and
