Paula Boggs is on her fourth career — and rocking it in her typical style.
An Army airborne veteran, corporate attorney, social activist, and now eclectic singer/songwriter/rocker — Boggs and her six-piece band traverse jazz, folk, rock and Americana, and are bringing their stylings to the Treehouse Café at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30 for a 21-and-older performance.
Tickets, $18 each, are for sale now via www.treehousebainbridge.com.
Their sound is perhaps best described as “Seattle-Brewed Soul-grass.”
Boggs served for eight years as a regular officer in the Army, earned paratrooper wings and a Congressional appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy — one of the first women to do so.
She is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley School of Law and earned a bachelor’s degree in international studies from Johns Hopkins University. She was also an adjunct professor at the University of Washington School of Law.
Boggs served as executive vice president, general counsel and secretary, law and corporate affairs at Starbucks Corporation from 2002 to 2012. Since leaving, she has volunteered for a presidential campaign as a national surrogate, serves on for-profit and nonprofit boards, and raises or gives money in support of causes she champions.
In 2013, President Barrack Obama appointed her to the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities, where she served before stepping down in 2017.
