Hog Operation is an ensemble 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 accompany smooth harmony vocals. The players are Steve Cooley, John Hawkins, Larry Raley, and 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. Hog Operation is available for touring and performs in venues large and small. The band can provide a complete sound system. Hog Operation is a musical experience you won’t forget!​
