July 20 - Judge Roughneck

Judge Roughneck's unique brand of ska & reggae pays tribute to both the early '80's British 2-Tone movement and the original jazz-laced ska of Jamaica, while infusing a generous dose of soul and R&B. The result is a unique, high-energy dance sound that entertains a wide audience.

Opening Act: Nate Hrivnak
