Neo Hot Club
The jazz-influenced Paris Combo first formed in 1995 and has gained popularity in Europe, Australia, Asia, and the United States, with a succession of increasingly well-received CD releases. The French-based acoustic combo has struck a positive chord with critics and audiences for their fun-loving mix of jazz, French pop, cabaret, gypsy, Latin, and Middle Eastern rhythms. Fronted by the smoky vocals of chanteuse Belle du Berry, the group now includes Australian David Lewis on piano and trumpet, Django-influenced guitarist Potzi, and French drummer François Jeannin.
Paris Combo have sold over 500,000 albums worldwide, and have completed 15 tours in the U.S., as well as toured extensively in France, Europe, Australia and Asia. Back from a five-year hiatus, they are recording and performing again, selling out shows to wildly enthusiastic audiences around the globe.
With the release of their first album in nearly a decade, and an upcoming worldwide tour, Paris Combo are poised once again to win audiences over with their intoxicating mix of hot-club-inspired old world charm and slinky modern pop songwriting.
