Many thanks to all the Italian and Croatian fans who made the past week so lovely for Fred and his hard-funking compadres. Only five more dates before it’s a wrap on this summer’s New JBs tour of Europe. Next stop: the breathtakingly beautiful Fiesta Sète, There, they’ll share the bill with Cimafunk from Cuba.
