Bandzoogle is a do-it-yourself website building platform. We provide bands and musicians with all the tools they need to create a website they can be proud of. Over our 15-year history we’ve seen tens of thousands of musician website designs launched on our platform.
Many of those sites were created by people without any sort of site building experience. This is exactly why Bandzoogle was created: to help people create the best musician websites possible, without requiring coding skills. We provide hundreds of modern template options and versatile design features so that our members can customize sites to their hearts’ desire.
Although it was difficult to narrow down, here’s a list of 15 of our best music website templates customized by current Bandzoogle members:
Stunning Header Image
When someone visits your website you only have a few seconds to make a big impression. The quickest way to grab their attention is with a noteworthy header image. The header photo chosen by folk-pop duo Fox and Bones encourages a smile. Images that stir up an emotional response makes a website visitor want to stick around to explore. If you upload mediocre images to your website it can make you look like an amatuer. We strongly recommend hiring a professional photographer to get the most out of your promo images.
You can upload up to five images to our header feature, and these will rotate as a slideshow. Country singer-songwriter Chelsea Cunningham gives us a great example of this on her website. Her images look so stylish you would think they came out of a magazine. Perfectly-styled images may take a bit more work to set up, but the impact is worth it. When you present a professional image, brands and sponsors take notice.
Using the split header layout of our Duet template, Americana artist Jon Stork added a great image from a solo performance on the left, and a call-to-action on the right. This mimics the look of a CD case; imagery that creates a sense of familiarity and comfort. Matching that with soft colors and a strong heading font makes visitors feel right at home. Jon also uses styled sections to visually separate features, giving the content area a clean, organized appearance.
A Prince tribute site wouldn’t be a Prince tribute site if it didn’t include Prince’s signature color. Prince lookalike Gabriel Sanchez goes all out with a full-page purple flood as the site background. This provides a strong background contrast for his header image and logo. Using such a bold color can be tricky in design but Gabriel does a great job of adding balance with amethyst and cream highlights. He keeps the rest of the pages simple with minimal and effective content.
To choose your website’s accent colours you’ll first need to decide your primary brand color. If you have heavy music you may want to go with a dark color, or for light and airy music you can choose pastels. From there you can use a color wheel to select complementary colors. Carlena’s website colors communicate the upbeat and inspiring tone of her music. We love how she uses various blues as a base, and bright yellow as an accent. These colors also match her imagery, which makes the website feel cohesive and professional.
Bandzoogle was created for musicians, but our features work well for any type of business or project. We’re happy to have so many “Otherzoogle” members on our platform, including Author/Speaker Tiffany Dawn. Her website provides a space of acceptance and peace, and the color scheme reflects this. Matching pink and orange with teal might not seem like a good idea -- until you see Tiffany’s website. The right hues and tones of contrasting colors can produce a harmonious result.

As a band, your likeness is your brand. While you’re building your profile, it’s important to match and repeat the imagery used on your website and social media platforms. This helps with recognition. If your music is well-established and your look is widely recognized, you can start to switch up that imagery. Alt-rock band Reed Four does this by using their latest album cover as their site’s header image. This attractive artwork makes a wonderful background for their website content. They also thoughtfully use colors from the album design throughout their content area. The text, buttons, and accent elements all compliment each other, making this site a pleasure to navigate.
Using album artwork in your header is a great idea, but you can celebrate each single as well. Denmark-based rock band ilt uses professionally-designed artwork to highlight their latest song release. Changing the header image with each new release is smart because it keeps their website fresh. Any regular updates you make on your site gives fans a reason to come back often.
A split-frame layout is another great way to make your website stand out. British reggae band ZAIA uses a variety of rectangular shapes in their layout, making the website look coordinated. Using rigid shapes can sometimes result in a stiff layout, but ZAIA’s artistic logo and soft pastel colors create a bold and calm effect. The contrast between menu and content is also well thought out. Giving the menu a dark background makes it stand out. This sets the navigation bar as a focal point so fans are clear on how to get to other pages.
When we released video headers we knew we would see some unique designs, and the Jazz and Milk website header totally wowed us! Their animation is a simple concept, and the effect is mesmerizing. Departing from the homepage we see that the inner pages are aesthetically sharp as well. Using boxy images and videos, the interior pages of this record label website are just as satisfying as the landing page. This site doesn’t have the congestion you would find on social media. This is why having a website is great: you get to design it the way you’d like.
Folks don’t want to hire a boring DJ. If your website is dull, visitors will think that you’ll make their event dull, too. A DJ website needs to exude fun. It’s easy to tell that DJ Housto gets this, because his website screams “PARTY!”. Arriving to his website, you immediately feel like it’s New Year’s Eve 1999. Confetti, wind machines, and dancing - that’s what we want for our next event. The fun vibes on this website encourage visitors to check the other pages, and ultimately book DJ Housto for their own dance floor.
The video header alone here makes us want to buy a ticket to the next Victor and the New Vintage show. Adding performance videos to your website lets fans know what they’ll get if they come to your show. With our video header feature you can upload a custom video to any page and add eye-catching movement to your website. You can even get creative, like Victor did, by adding a video reel to the header. This collection of show footage lets fans know you are actively gigging, and creates a sense of urgency for them to get to the next show so that they don’t miss out.
Your website is the home for your music, so it should suit the vibe. Jon Hart is a singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitar player, plucking the guitar strings directly with the fingertips as opposed to a guitar pick. This mellow guitar style fits well with a simplified website design. Jon’s black and white site is minimal to allow for his image and music to take center stage. Color is introduced in the content area to put a focus on store items and live events.
If someone gets to your website and cannot tell what you do within five seconds, they’ll typically leave. The Pop-Up Choir won’t have that problem because their site’s header image tells it all. Super simple, yet effective, this header lets visitors know that the pop-up choir is for those that want to sing and do good. The rest of the pages are equally uncluttered, displaying only necessary information about the choir, upcoming events, and videos of previous pop-up performances. You’ve heard the phrase “less is more,” and this website is a good example of that.
A man and his guitar. Sometimes that’s really all it takes to pique curiosity. Shaky White is a Canadian bassist, vocalist, and songwriter. His talent is his brand, so keeping his website uncomplicated suits his style. His header title and menu font style is clear and easy to read. Site visitors are busy, so keeping your menu to eight tabs or less is ideal. If you have more content to share, consider condensing information to fewer pages. If you’ve been around a while and have a lot of content to share with your fanbase, sub-pages are useful as well.
