Adrian Chamberlain

"Pianist Niels Petersen banged out Jazz influenced blues, funk & riffs with taste and impeccable timing"

Saskatchewan Star-Pheonix

The warm-up act was Turner's near perfect, musical antithesis, pianist-guitarist Niels Petersen, who did a soft and easy set of folk standards and original material. The audience may have been geared for rocking rhythm and blues, but it listened appreciatively to Petersen, whose performance on the guitar was fast, clean, and accomplished.

The Leader-Post Regina

Opening up for Tina Turner, Vancouver folk singer Niels Petersen got the evening off on the right foot with a pleasant mixture of contemporary folk tunes and pop ballads. With a repertoire that included James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles, Petersen had a little something for everyone. The Copenhagen native also impressed with his technique on amplified acoustic guitar, producing a range of sounds beyond the capabilities of most acoustics.

Hi Niels,

Thanks so much to you and Connie for the excellent show that you played for us at the VFMS on Sunday! You have a great folk repertoire, lovely harmonies and interesting banter.
All the best to you,

Hi Niels, 

Thank you for entertaining us with the Lebeau-Petersen Band at Gorge Vale Golf Club on October 29th, 2016. Before the evening had even ended, I had members asking me to rebook you!  The music was varied and wonderfully suited to our club. The dance floor never emptied.  I would not hesitate to recommend you, as your band played to the crowd and would suit any occasion.
Thank you, also,  for participating in our pumpkin carving contest and judging the variety of costumes.  We could not have done it without you.
We look forward to having you back.

Hi Niels,

I’ve been remiss in not writing sooner to say how wowed all our guests were by your trio! In the aftermath of the party EVERYONE commented on how wonderful you were. It was called the “best house party ever”!
I’m so pleased you were available. 
Would love to hear you at the Empress... Is it just at the tea or do you also play in the lounge? I never do those popular tea things with visitors as the sweets are overwhelming!!
Take care, and thanks again for being such a great addition to Mike’s party
