Musician Portal/Community (3 posts)

    I'm looking to develop an online community for musicians and fans, similar to purevolume.com, reverbnation.com, unsigned.com etc. Does WordPress have any themes/plugins/extensions/modifcations etc. which would allow such site to be developed easily? Most of the features I had in mind are available with Jamroom (jamroom.net), but they are currently rewriting their software which would not be backwards compatible with their current version, so I'm investigating alternatives. I've seen many WP themes that are designed for single artist/bands/musicians etc., but I have not found any so far that are geared towards multiple artists. I also have not come across any WP sites that's similar to what I want to do. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Tallest,

    I know this thread is 8 months old, but I'm now in the very same situation as you described. (I would need a community of local musicians a bit like purevolume.com / revernation.com, etc.)

    Have you found any solutions?

    Thank you so very much!

    P.S. - Oh please, let me tell you that I found nonWP solutions, but their support is very weak:

    BEATZ - http://www.cogzidel.com/beatz-pure-volume-clone/

    DOLPHIN - http://www.boonex.com/dolphin

    But I believe that a WP solution would not leave me "alone in the dark"...

    There is a product called WordPress Artist/Band Manager, but I have not tried it. You can find info about it at the following link:

    However, I think http://www.jamroom.net, a non-Wordpress product, is probably the most comprehensive solution for managing a band/musician portal/directory/community.
