Maughan recently performed a one-man theatre memoire at Ogden’s Good Company Theatre, revealing HIS own theatrical abilities. Howe is currently a music major at WSU and has recently appeared at Jazz at the Station with the Casey Wood Trio. He performs frequently with ensembles in the Northern Utah area. Jennings, co-producer of Jazz at the Station, can be seen regularly in jazz ensembles as a bassist, drummer or vocalist. 

You can expect an especially theatrical and holiday oriented evening of jazz at this Jingle Bell Jazz at the Station. 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.
