Catch Jake Nielsen Triple Threat before it leaves country

Better catch Jake Nielsen’s Triple Threat in Reno and Lake Tahoe this weekend — the rockin’ blues fusion band is about to go international.

The well-traveled trio from Santa Cruz will play at the Studio on Fourth in Reno on Friday and at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon in South Shore on Saturday. Nielsen will rejoin the Buddy Emmer Blues Band onstage at month’s end for Tuesday Night Blues at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe — if the boys make it back in three pieces following an Aug. 17 show at the Rogue Club in Tijuana, Mexico.

Nielsen played across the border previously at a blues festival in Quebec, Canada, (“That was badass, we were the headliner for 4,000 people on Saturday night”), but for bandmates Cuz Dave (bass) and Kyle Talty (drums), the Mexico trip is a new out-of-the-country adventure: “They’re stoked about it.”

The band has been busy playing in Central California and in the Bay Area, and working on a new album at Cave Recording Studio in Mountain View, laying down tracks for eight songs of a planned 10 for the CD. “It sounds really good so far,” Nielsen said.

Expect to hear some Folsom Prison Blues on Friday night, as Nielsen can shoot a man in Reno and escape to the cooler confines of Lake Tahoe overnight. No problema. The high-energy Triple Threat combines blues with funk and reggae, not trapping itself into a specific genre.

On Aug. 30, Nielsen will make his third appearance at Harrah’s with Buddy Emmer. In late September, it’s back to the Las Vegas Bike Fest. Last year, the band played on Sunday morning at the festival. This year’s it’s opening for the Friday night headliner.
