FoxHound Band Themes are one of the few WordPress theme developers who are concentrating on one niche; in their case, designs for bands and musicians. Their flagship theme is a beautiful feature rich design called Dark n’ Gritty.
The design has a traditional blog layout with a featured image at the top of the page to showcase the band or musician. It was built after WordPress 3.1 was released so has all the new WordPress features that have been added in the last year. As you would expect from a band theme, Dark n’ Gritty has loads of features to help you promote your music such as:
- Built-In Myspace Music Player Widget
- Built-In Facebook Like & Feed Widget
- Ability To Upload Your Own MP3s
- YouTube Player
All the major social media services have been integrated into the design and there is also a newsletter sign up widget and a handy calendar widget that allows you to display when your next gigs are.
Dark n’ Gritty is one of the best music related designs I have seen in the last year or so. The theme retails for $70 however if you have a bigger budget, FoxHound Band Themes will be able to design you a custom logo and brand your website accordingly.
