Saturday night, Paula Boggs of the Paula Boggs Band invited me to join her at the in West Seattle. My wife and I had a great time and the band made us feel very welcome.
The Paula Boggs Band is a local Jazz/Blues band that’s beginning to make a splash on the national Jazz scene. Paula shared with us how she gets inspired by real people and real situations when she writes her heartfelt lyrics.
Paula spoke emotionally about “Edith’s Coming Home” and how “Edith” was a legal pioneer, becoming one of New York State’s first African American judges. In later life, Edith struggled with dementia and lost that precious something that helped her overcome obstacles and achieve such lofty goals.
Do yourself a favor and see Paula and her band at your local jazz club.
