Acoustic Music at the Hog Wallow

Acoustic MusicNamed after a rapid on the Green River, The Hog Wallow Pub is located kitty-corner to the historic Old Mill ruin at the base of Big Cottonwood Canyon, renowned for some of the best snow on earth. It is the latest reincarnation of the oldest and most notorious bar in the Cottonwood Heights area.

Since it’s opening, Hog Wallow has received a number of awards including City Search’s “Best Outdoor Bar,” City Weekly’s “Best Neighborhood Bar” and “Best Escape From Downtown,” and Salt Lake Magazine’s “Best Suburban Bar.”

Randy Mundy & the Mundy Mourning Blues Band

Randy Mundy & the Mundy Mourning Blues Band, Ogden, Utah, Peerys Egyptian Theatre, LDS, Blues Music, Country MusicNow, my base of operations is again Utah, having relocated there after my mother’s death several years ago, to be closer to Karen’s family and help care for her ailing mother. Karen decided at this point that she did not care to actively perform live any longer and that wanted devote herself to other pursuits. Not wanting to be creatively idle, I continued to write, record, and perform my music live. I have returned to my love of the blues and have recorded a couple more CDs of original blues and jazz tunes—“Blue Mundy (Part 1)” and “Blue Mundy (Part2)”—with my new performing group, “RANDY MUNDY & THE MUNDY MOURNING BLUES BAND”. I am currently working on a third blues and jazz CD, which I hope to release later this year. Life is good when you can do what you love.
