2016 was a big year for us here at Bandzoogle! We released so many new features and design options so that all musicians can build a modern, mobile-ready website in minutes.
In case you missed any of the updates, here's a quick look back at what was added to Bandzoogle this past year:
New Theme Designer
One of the first things we released this year was our new Theme Designer. We made the theme designer more powerful and easier to use, while offering a ton of new customization options.
From photo filter overlays, to adjustable header heights, and updates showing in real time within the editor, you can tweak your theme to make it fit your style more than ever before. Plus, you can save works in progress to publish later!

Themes and more themes!
We put a focus this year on bringing you more simple, modern, and beautiful templates. Each one is stylish, is fully responsive on mobile, and has their own unique set of customization options:
Prismatic includes a large main image space, smooth load-in animation, image filters and background customization options.
Portside features vertical navigation, 6 variations, and a brand new sitewide music player style.
Meridian features a diamond shaped animation behind the main title, lots of color filter options, and 3 variations to choose from.
Eclipse includes a smooth animated effect for your band name, styled featured backgrounds, and photo filters for your main image.
Encore is our first theme to feature a call to action in the header area, and also includes photo filters and content area styling.
Choose a new theme by genre
We also added a new theme chooser to help you change your design with ease! You can now filter by genre to get an idea of which theme might best suit your music.
And remember, you can change your theme at any time and it won’t affect the content on your site.
Call to Action
We also added a fun and modern way to promote your new album, an upcoming event, or latest video: enter the call to action!
We added a crisp call to action option with text and a button on two of our themes - the Encore theme, and the Portside theme. It sits nicely over your background image or video, and helps you emphasize an important point to your fans.
What better way to add a touch of excitement and a fresh look to your website than a video header?
That’s right - we implemented video headers to our responsive themes! Adding a quick clip to your design is simple, and a great visual way to show what your music is all about.
Need to create pages quickly, or figure out which features work well together? We added preset pages this year to make it easy for you to add pages on the go.
In addition to the filters and options within the Theme Designer, we also added the option to style the buttons.
Adding a button that’s just an outline, or switching from pill shape to square can be the final polish when finishing up your website! Choose any color you want to match your template.
Plus: Custom Band Email Addresses
This past year, we also rolled out custom @yourdomain.com email addresses. These addresses are $14.95/ year, can be set up for multiple band members, and accessed from the road.
The new email also provides a handy band calendar option, in addition to loads of storage space and the capability to send and receive large attachments.
We hope you’ve been having fun trying out our new designs, customizing colors and buttons, and adding calls-to-action to your band website! There’s lots more to look forward to in 2017, and we thank each and every one of you for coming along the ride with us.
