Progressive, pop rock, fusion, blues, jazz, jam, and more. All these musical genres wrapped into a little ball we call Lobster Newberg.

Lobster Newberg is a progressive rock band out of Chicago , IL that features Colin Peterik on keys and lead vocals, Phil Miller on guitar, Jamie Dull on drums and percussion, and Corey Kamerman on bass. These four musicians bring different backgrounds, influences, and attitudes into their music, creating an explosion of ideas and creativity.

Lobster Newberg's music is very unique and melodic, which is rare to hear in a modern progressive rock outfit. They take the introspective aspect of classic progressive rock and turn it into something fresh. When asking Colin Peterik his opinion on their music, he replied, "Our music doesn't age. Listen to it now or 20 years from now. It'll still be new...it'll still be fascinating."

Whether you're into the 60's and 70's classic or progressive rock, modern progressive rock, jambands, pop rock, fusion, or just great music with a solid core and raw talent, you will love Lobster Newberg. Their solid albums and high energy live concerts are not to be missed.

Lobster Newberg returned from their two month national tour across the entire US in March '09. They are currently performing constantly across the midwest in cities like Minneapolis, St Louis, Kansas City, Cleveland, Detroit, Miwaukee, and of course Chicago.
