Double Take ... Mia Palcencia & Roger Wang
Flo Lobby Lounge, Equatorial Hotel
Double Take, consisting of Mia-Germain Palencia, a 22-year old vocalist, and Roger Wang, a 32-year old acoustic guitarist, is a firm believer in simplicity. With nothing more than a guitar and a voice, the duo presents their music in minimalist arrangements, with Wang expertly handling everything guitar-related, from the bass lines to the chords to the percussive bits, while Palencia grabs attention through her invitingly rich vocals that bring to mind a young Ella Fitzgerald.Roger describes the history of this Summer Jazz Series III ... "Back in 2005, Equatorial Hotel was interested in incorporating some live music into Flo. So they came up with the Summer Jazz Series idea. Chris Moore of Equatorial contacted us about this. He worked with us before at Concorde Hotel when we did a one-week gig there in 2001. He brought his GM to come check us out at a gig that we were doing. Right after that, they decided that we were the right act for the first Summer Jazz Series. That turned out very good. I guess that's the main reason why we came back for the second one and now the third."

Mia has the voice of an angel and a repertoire to match, great presence on stage and she is versatile enough to switch between Sting to Paul McCartney and blues and jazz, simply MAGNIFIQUE! Roger is the perfect partner, and his mastery of the guitar is apparent ("Magical fingers!"). There were times when I swore there were 2 guitarists in him!
The magnificent duo...
