You use social networks to connect with your fans. We see those networks like loose puzzle pieces and believe that the best way you can put them together is by having an official website. That’s what myband.is is for.
Every band page on myband.is is a centralized Place for a band’s social networks and we want you to learn how to get the best out of every service.
As of now, our doors are wide open for all independent musicians.
For those who don’t know, myband.is is the easiest way to create a band’s official website. It’s a free service that let’s you quickly create a super slick website that’s highly customizable and updates automagically.
Check out the gallery to find out how cool the band pages are. There you can see our featured pages (hand-picked by our staff) and explore the hundreds of bands that are already enjoying a tailor-made stage for their music.

myband.is is a tool for musicians to create a slick, customized website that updates automatically, is easy to set up and best of all, is free. The service was launched in private beta on July 24, 2012 and one month later is being rolled out to a larger audience through invitations that existing users can send to other bands.
“We had such a great response from bands using the site in private beta, that we very quickly got to a point where we had fixed any major issues, made additional improvements, and were ready to bring more bands on board.” says Lucho Molina, one of the founders of myband.is.
Some of the additional improvements include adding a gallery of band pages to the home, enabling custom domains so that bands can use their own url for their myband.is page, letting bands login with their Facebook account, along with a bunch of behind the scenes updates to improve the site’s performance. “It’s with the valuable feedback from our users that guides us in creating our roadmap for the future.” says Lucho.
myband.is is a service for bands and musicians to create their official website, using content from their social networks and other web services. Content is seamlessly integrated by type rather than source (which is more commonly the norm with this kind of service), this makes band pages feel more like a tailor-made website than a solution for the masses.
The service offers a high level of customization, without crossing the line that separates professional from amateur, making it very hard to create a bad looking band page.
It’s only been 3 weeks since we launched myband.is to our VIP beta testers, but in that short amount of time oh boy have they been busy! Creating some pretty amazing looking band sites, even if we do say so ourselves!
It’s our daily pleasure to take a look at the new band pages and check out all of the cool music :) We want to share this pleasure with everyone that visits the site, so we created a gallery of all the band pages on the home, take a look and discover some new music!
That’s not all…
We’ve also added a Facebook login, to make it even easier to sign up and create your band page.
It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Alejandro Zuleta to the myband.is team. He’ll be working side by side with Lucho on development, to help us get the site live as quickly as we can. Alejandro made it through our pretty vigorous “geek test” and we’re happy to say passed with flying colors.
Alejandro’s first day
Here’s what he had to say about his first day with us:
“It was an entertaining and busy first day at myband.is. After a warm welcome, Lucho soon led me through the rich internal architecture of the website. myband.is, technically speaking, is an application full of creative possibilities and it’s a great pleasure for me to be a part of its development. Back to the real world, lunch came with a conversation with Mao, full of interesting and fun ideas. But the highlight was not at the lunch table but back waiting for me in the office: a list of bugs to resolve and one in particular that for today remains to be defeated. The daily bread of every programmer. Despite everything I learned today, a day is not complete at myband.is if you don’t set a new record on the indo board. And I set mine: 3 seconds!”
We’re glad that Alejandro enjoyed his first day in the team and as a special welcome present he gets to spend the rest of the week in geek heaven at Campus Party Colombia. So what are you waiting for peeps, show him some love or ask him a question in the comments below.
The myband.is team is celebrating. We were chosen as one of the winning projects in Wayra Colombia 2012 and we’d like to share our experience of the reality of the startups that participated in wayraWeek.
