Paris Combo consists of Belle du Berry, lead vocals; Potzi, guitar; Francois Jeannin, drums, percussion and vocals; David Lewis, trumpet, flugelhorn and piano; and Emmanuel Chabbey, contrabass. A string trio also contributes: Renaud Guieu, cello; Floriane Bonnani, violin; and Jeremie Pasquier, viola.
