Bluegrass music from Louisville, KentuckY

Hog Operation​

Hog Operation is a Louisville, Kentucky based 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 (banjo), John Hawkins (guitar), Larry Raley (bass), and Mike Schroeder (mandolin and fiddle).


We perform at concerts, festivals, private engagements, conventions, special events and weddings. Give us a call to check on availability and pricing.
