I am a part of a funky rap/rock quintet from North Jersey called A.S.B.P.K. I recently read an article here at music think tank entitled “Forget MySpace: How To Build The Ultimate Website To Interact With YourFans” and was immediately inspired to take a crack at creating us an excellent band website to act as our central “hub” that connects all our social networks & encompasses everything that we’re doing.
I have little to no experience with web & graphic design but with about a week’s worth of REALLY late nights I was able to come up with this site for my band:
The site is wordpress-based & is being tracked with google analytics. I took the advice of commenters and steered clear of the “Instinct E-commerce” Wordpress plugin, opting to use a simple Paypal setup instead (it will suffice for now!). The site also utilizes the “gigpress” plugin and several Reverbnation plugins, as well as a wordpress plugin linked with Flickr. We wanted to keep everything simple & easily navigable, and I think we achieved that.
I would really just love to receive some input & suggestions for improvement because I put a lot of hard work into this! Also, I would love to see your “ultimate band” websites if you’ve taken a crack at it!
