I have been a member on the envato network for a while now, and although I love the large selection of themes available to choose from in many categories, there aren’t any related to “Music”.
I can’t even find any decent themes searching Google and other sites, so I would be really happy if you guys started making music-type sites, especially done in WordPress! (I don’t buy themes unless it’s WP!).
I’m specifically looking for Band type websites such as Avril Lavigne, The Rocket Summer, and Oasis, with Avril Lavigne being my favorite.
Some features I would like in a band website (WordPress):
Video Player area, Music Player area, Good Photo Gallery, Advertisements, Sidebar “widgetized”, Vote Poll, User “switchable” theme colors, Decent Blog Page, Gigs/Tour Dates page (easily updateable!)
Please guys, envato has no real Music/Band themed sites – and there is a big need for them! I’m looking to purchase at least 10 themes as I know a lot of new bands that are starting up.
There is also one of the winners of the $3000 Competition’s Template.
Thanks for your comments, guys.
@ipad – it’s not very feature rich, and it’s quite boring.
@danielku – that site is rather ugly and old fashioned looking.
@kevinsturf – it’s nice, but it’s not that great. Not even WordPress!
There are more than one type of Band site you know. There’s rock, pop, metal etc types, but there’s literally NOTHING available (not anything remotely decent anyway).
I’m wanting a grunge type band website, a pop/rock and also a community – type band site. Come on guys, I’m sure you’d rather make band sites that keep releasing new sites that we already have plenty of, such as Business themes.
I’m willing to pay at least $30 for a decent theme here on Theme Forest, and I’m sure others will too.
You’ll have trouble finding a theme that is so targetted mainly because it would be hard to sell plus the copyright issues of using an image of Oasis or whoever. I’ve seen Joomla template providers do stuff like it.
You can use pretty much any nice templatet you see here on ThemeForest, all you need to do is change the text, and images around and there you go, a nice music website. Or you can always hire someone for cheap to make you one. Good Luck!
@jigowatt – I agree, it is very grungy, but the actual theme doesn’t look anything like a band site, there’s no features related to music.
@RobbyDesigns – I don’t actually think a targeted theme would be less harder to sell, not on the envato network anyway as every theme seems hard to sell. Plus there’s no need to use pictures of Oasis etc, blank headers would be perfectly fine.
@webdesigndeluxe – Very true, I could use any theme on Theme Forest, but that would require a million and one changes, text, colors, adding of features… the list goes on.
Unfortunately I am unable to afford to hire someone to make a band theme just for me, but I would be more than happy to see a price tag of $50 on Theme Forest for a very decent looking band theme.
If envato ends up making the price of the theme too low (like they always do), I would be more than happy to donate to the author.
Please? Even if two authors made one, I’d be happy to pay. I have several bands needing a decent site.
