We are a voluntary unincorporated association. This is legal stuff that means we are a voluntary group of people that run Rock The Lobster mainly for fun. Unfortunately lots of things cost money so we need to raise money to cover our running costs.
There are eight people on the Rock The Lobster committee:
Malcolm Birtwell aka Malcypoos is our chair. He is an experienced multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who has been performing live in rock bands for many years. Malcolm’s original music may be found on Facebook, Soundcloud, Reverbnation and Number One Music. He has played with Green Beach, Nofix d’Bode, Better The Devil, Almost Angels and collaborated with many other musicians. He currently is musical arranger, lead guitarist and backing vocalist in U-WATT. His main instrument is electric guitar although he can play bass guitar, drums, various percussion and can sing baritone. He is also a poet, aspiring author and has been involved in amateur dramatics. His poetry is published online under the nom de plume Isaiah Shannock.
Nigel Pearce is our vice-chair. He runs Out of Town Media. Its aim is to nurture your interest , whether in sound, events or writing and scripting. They are a Norfolk based organisation with strong community links and this is shown by Nigel’s involvement as a Broadcaster and Presenter with Future Radio 107.8 FM, in Norwich. He is also a live DJ, having spent many years as a resident DJ in clubs and venues in and around London. Being part of today’s Norfolk media assures his continual links to today’s music and sound.
