I run a WordPress site and like just about all of them, it's blog-centric, as it is supposed to be. But, I'm also thinking about creating a new music site for my son and after thinking about it, I'm wondering if I could use the familiar WordPress as a base for the site. So, if I could think aloud here, perhaps I can get opinions from other users here as to if I can do this?
The components of a band site are generally:
a music player, with song list
a tour date list
a mailing list function
a contact page
a store (which I can outsource)
...other misc pages
Of course, the pages needs to be rock-style, splashier than a typical blog. The actual blog portion of the site would be on the front page, but it would be a much, much smaller portion of the page than a typical blog.
At first, this didn't seem like WP would be good for this, but then I thought about the flexibility of themes, and the variety of plugins available. I've seen music players and gallery plugins for example.
I'm not a great web site builder as I'm pretty rusty after several years off. I'm not looking forward to relearning everything and creating all the structural and highly technical components of a web site. But, I'm very capable of creating a theme, the CSS, and integrating the plugins.
So, can I get opinions and advice from anyone? Doable?
