Every Bandzoogle template comes with variations to help get you started. You can further customize any of these preset versions by adjusting colors, fonts, and more. Apply one of the following variations and get started on your content right away:

Playful: The Playful variation of ‘Receiver’ adds a backdrop of hot pink, combined with abstract art. The band name jumps off the page in a large white font, which then fades neatly as content scrolls up. This version would work well for a pop artist, R & B band, or a cover band..

Sombre: The Sombre variation uses a vibrant red tone and sleek fonts to create drama and intrigue from the top. The high contrast of this website template variation would make it ideal for a beats producer, EDM musician, or DJ.

Neutral: An extremely large site title makes an impression with the Neutral variation. It features a combination of serif fonts and a bleached canvas that will make your content stand out. This version would be the perfect start for an alternative band or jazz musician to make their mark. Try adding black sections with white text, to break up a content-heavy website.

Elegant: The elegant version of this website template pairs pastel hues with a white font. The content fully fades into white, featuring simple black text. This would be a good fit for a music composer, solo artist, or folk musician.

'Receiver' template tips:

  • You can set your ‘Background image opacity’ to 0% to block it from view on page load, but it will be revealed beneath your page content once the page is scrolled.
  • Set your ‘Page content positioning’ to the left and decrease the width to 50% so your expandable site-wide music player doesn’t cover your content when expanded.
  • If you apply the ‘Fixed header’ option, choose a smaller size for your menu and site-wide my sites so that it doesn’t impede on your page content.
