Colorado’s local ska/reggae legends, Judge Roughneck, have dropped a brand new single called “The Girl”! The band, whose unique sound “pays tribute to both the early ’80’s British 2-Tone movement and the original jazz-laced ska of Jamaica” are going to get their fans moving with the new tune.

Commented the band’s Byron Shaw on the song: “‘The Girl’ is inspired by all the amazing women in my life! And I wrote it when my daughter became pregnant and we new she would have a Girl. And to tell the guys to cherish women and show respect!”
