Chunga

Chunga SquareBorn and raised in Salt Lake City Utah, Jimmy Chunga has been spinning music for as long as he can remember! Starting in the underground clubs of the surprisingly large and passionate Salt Lake punk & alternative scene, Chunga cut his teeth playing vinyl records for disaffected youth at the age of 16. He realized immediately, this was something he wanted to do for the rest of his life.

Unlike so many of the kids in his underground community, Chunga figured out early that if he wanted this to be real, he needed training… lots of it. Chunga wanted to do more than just “spin” songs, he wanted to perform… He studied dramatic arts and music at Southern Utah University in the Tony Award winning theater department, learned the art of “voice over” acting while in private study with legendary voice actor June Foray (Rocky & Bullwinkle, Looney Tunes) and worked as a stand up comic.

This background in music and theater led Chunga into the world of radio where he’s performed as a top rated morning show host for over 20 years, spending most of his tenure at 2 nationally acclaimed alternative stations (KXRK “X-96″ & KENZ “The End”)

Jimmy Chunga has been fortunate to have grown a massive local and national fan base and always draws huge crowds resulting in sold out venues, in the United States & in Europe.

Chunga has produced, mixed & performed along side some of the biggest names in music! In 2013, he performed at the South by Southwest Music festival & his corporate clientele includes Paul Mitchell, Victoria Secret, Disneyland,
Ancestory.com, Chegg, Playboy, The U.S. Olympic Committee, Salt Lake Comic Con & many, many more!

In addition to his music interests, Chunga is has an extreme passion for the
paranormal & has been investigating ghosts and studying historical demonology for over 15 years with his longtime friend and partner Ben Hansen.
