Jessica Dobson

Jessica Dobson (also known as “Dobby”) has been a musician since her grandma gifted her with her first guitar after Jessica watched the 2001 smash hit “Josie and the Pussycats”. Jessica attended the Rock and Roll Institute the first year she was old enough to participate and never missed a camp week thereafter (Thanks Mom, Dad, and Grandma)!

She performed in various basement punk rock bands throughout high school and college (including an embarrassing slam poetry-guitar fusion experiment), and was most recently in a party punk band called High School Pizza. Her musical influences are far and wide, most notably Johnny Cash, Three Dog Night, and above all, The Runaways.

She spends her days as a Kindergarten teacher, which in her opinion, is one of the best jobs in the world! She is ecstatic to return to the Rock and Roll Institute as a teacher, following the footsteps of her musical mentors, and reliving, once again, the best summers of her life!
