Who is Peter Greenberg?

Manby's Head—Peter Greenberg is at right
Manby's Head—Peter Greenberg is at right

Peter Greenberg is the guitar player for Taos rock and roll band Manby’s Head. In the ’70s and ’80s, he played and made records with Boston garage punk bands DMZ and Lyres, Cincinnati’s The Customs and funky rockabilly screamer Barrence Whitfield and the Savages (another Boston outfit).

However, at age 30, he finished grad school, quit music and got into the energy business. Three years ago he downsized his career and moved from Texas to New Mexico, where he met Manby’s Head bandmates Michael Mooney and Paul Reid. Greenberg recently toured with Lyres and finished a record with Barrence Whitfield, with whom he’s touring Europe this fall. In the meantime, he’ll play our Factory Party on Saturday night with Manby’s Head.
