Funking in France, again
Fred and his New JBs are five French dates into this spring's 21-city European tour. Merci beaucoup to all the funky people who filled venues last week in Nice, Arles, Agen, Nanterre and Blois! More thanks to journalist David Cristol, who filed this report from Agen. Here's the hard-working band --plus road manager Joya and bus driver Mario -- prepared to enjoy yet another fine French meal.
