Drummer/vibraphonist/saxophonist Smith Dobson V has been performing in the Bay Area for over twenty years.

Originally from Santa Cruz, Dobson is a member of an important jazz family. His father, the late Smith Dobson IV, was a world reknowned pianist and director of the jazz series at Garden City in San Jose for over twenty years, where he accompanied the likes of Art Pepper, Stan Getz, Bobby Hutcherson, Harold Land, Chet Baker, Red Norvo, Tal Farlow, and Lee Konitz, to name a few. Also in the family, Grandfather Smith III is a jazz accordionist; Grandmother Norma, Mother Gail, and Sister Sasha are all jazz vocalists.

Smith Dobson V has had the honor of working with some of the great Jazz artists, locally and internationally, such as Bobby Hutcherson, Red Rodney, John Handy, Sheila Jordan, Red Holloway, Pete and Conte Condoli, Phillip Harper, Hal Stein, Noel Jewekes, Ben Goldberg, Graham Connah's Sour Note Seven, Darren Johnstone, Charlie Shoemake, Will Bernard, and Kenny Brooks.

Dobson was featured last year at the  Monterey Jazz Festival with his band Prez Kids, playing jazz influenced by the iconic Lester Young and early swing era.
