Hog Operation

A jazz, rock, country band.

Artist Bio

The Hog Operation is an ensemble that is steeped in Kentucky’s rich music tradition. This group gives high-energy performances created by the cross-pollination of many American roots music styles including Blues, Bluegrass, Celtic, Country and Rock.

Hog Operation plays a style of supercharged Bluegrass music using traditional instrumentation-guitar, banjo, bass, fiddle and mandolin – that accompanies silky smooth three-part harmony vocals.

The players are Steve Cooley, Screamin’ John Hawkins, Larry Raley and Chubby Spud (a.k.a. Mike Schroeder). This Louisville-based band has released two CDs New Litter featuring all original music and Nice Ham Bites, covering a variety of Bluegrass and Country standards.

This ensemble draws musical inspiration and repertoire from the lonesome sound of the early Celtic settlers, as well as the field hollers and blues of the first African Americans that created the true beginnings of the Bluegrass Style. Live shows include a healthy dose of rock, reggae, R & B, and country. It’s a sound that you need to hear.
