The Best WordPress Themes for Bands and Musicians

Every band and musician needs to have an effective website. Established and popular bands must be able to communicate with their fans, promote their live performances and tours, and offer audio clips or sell their music. Smaller bands that are working hard to get their big break will need to use their website to spread the word and to help make people more aware of their music.

Since many bands are working with limited budgets, having a quality website hasn’t always been easy. Fortunately, there are now a number of quality WordPress themes that have been created specifically for bands. With the help of any of these themes a band can have a professional-looking website for less than $100.

In this post we’ll take a look at 17 of the best WordPress themes for bands.
