BBC3 personnel:

Guitar: Keven Johanson 
Johanson s Associate Professor of Music at the  University of Utah, where he teaches Jazz guitar and jazz combos, among other things. He is a board member of Jazz Arts of the MountainWest (JAM). He has been a guest performer at the 1999 Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy and guest performer at the 1999/2000 Umbria Millenium Winter Fest in Orvieto, Italy. He is well known to Utah jazz fans for his performances at many venues.

Bass & Trumpet: James Schaub
Schaub started playing bass among other instruments in the public school system. After high school he enrolled at Utah State University majoring in music under Dr. Larry Smith. It was here that he discovered horn band funk and the jazz art form. Currently he fills the bass chair for most points of the Utah musical compass. During the day he teaches orchestra and guitar in the Cache County School District. 

Drums: Benjamin Jennings
In addition to being a musician, Jennings also assists in producing the Jazz at the Station program. His love of jazz really began when he first started attending Jazz in the Skyroom, the earliest incarnation of this program, in 1998. Listening to and meeting jazz musicians changed the direction of his musical interests. He now works to share that interest with others.

Jazz at the Station provides an all-ages venue for jazz fans and students. Well behaved children are welcome to attend as long as they do not disturb the performers or members of the audience.
