"The soulful sounds of Paula Boggs and her band have matured since the last time that I reviewed them. It was fun witnessing the growth of these talented musicians. The playful nature of the entire band has been a joy to experience but they all seem to have stepped it up for Friday’s performance. There was a vibe that’s tough to put my finger on but it’s like that special warm comfortable blanket of a cold and rainy night. I look forward to listening Paula’s new record, Carnival Of Miracles, produced by London Bridge Studios being released this spring."
"No matter the tone, The Paula Boggs Band plays visionary music. Both the lyrics and the instrumentation carry bold and clear messages – a direct extension of the spirit of the band’s female lead. As the sole songwriter, Paula Boggs places her personal stamp on each record. And throughout it all, there’s that smile."

“Paula Boggs Band Editors Pick: The blues- and jazz-flavored rock of Seattle’s Paula Boggs Band might be standard coffeehouse fare if the front woman’s backstory didn’t lend the brew greater complexity. Boggs has served in the army; worked as a lawyer in the White House, the Pentagon, and the US Attorney’s Office; and acted as an executive vice president for Starbucks. Today, in addition to fronting a band, the “Fortune 500 vet” sits on the boards of Johns Hopkins University, the Red Cross, and KEXP public radio. File PBB’s music under “What am I doing with my life?” ”
“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.”

“Clean Water Foundation Presents: Tess and Carson Henley with Paula Boggs 05/17/2011 If you would have told me last week that I was going to photograph a benefit for a clean water charity for needy children that rocked this hard I would have said you were crazy. Leon McLaughlin, CEO of Clean Water Foundation, gathered two fantastic groups that blew the roof off the Paragon on Queen Anne. Paula Boggs opened the show with a combination of rock & R&B, peppered with a tasty serving of sexy Jazz. We all knew Paula was having too much fun when she broke out the Led Zeppelin. Truthfully, I’m not sure the Paragon knew what to do with that combination, but it definitely worked for me.”
