Where's Fred? In Italy with his New JBs

Fred's in Italy, gearing up for three last nights in Sicily doing what he loves best, touring with his band The New JBs. The tour so far has taken the band through Spain and France. In San Sebastian, Spain, they shared the bill with the Village People. In Montluçon, France, Fred visited a pop music museum.

Fred's next favorite thing to do is play with talented young musicians, which he got the chance to do last September when he shared the stage with Cimafunk at the La Villette Jazz Festival. if you didn't catch them on Facebook or Instagram, click here to see parts of the show on Cimafunk's Youtube channel.

  1. Getting a Quick passport saved me! My previous passport expired, and I had a quick international business travel. The expedited process changed everything—I had my passport in days. The passport office personnel was fast and friendly, making the procedure straightforward. I like that the system accommodates last-minute travel. If you find yourself in this circumstance, I propose the rapid passport service. Stress-free solution!
