Our singer is a pro designer so when he has time, he will replace it with something cool. This
is what the interim site looks like.
It's very simple with just the important things - title, picture, brief bio, streaming demo songs and contact details. The idea is to approach venue owners and give them a card with the web address.
Thanks to all who pitched in. The info might come in handy for others.
Have you tried using the WordPress platform for a Web site? Amazingly easy and thousands of plugins to do just about anything you want, all free. I pitched FrontPage and templates and I'm now doing it this way for all my clients.
