  1. Thanks for adding fuse. Do you think you can update link because fuse has moved to http://cell-designs.com/marketplace/fuse-music-wordpress-theme-customizable/

  2. Nice list, some of them are a bit simplistic though and don’t provide anything extra for my band, for example the music player. I think thats a must for a theme aimed at bands, I don’t think having just a grungy design qualifies it as a theme for musicians.

    So I need to get one but I can’t decide between the Rugged theme, and one that I’m looking at which isn’t listed here called My band theme, which looks like it can do a lot of stuff:

  3. Great list. My favourite is The GRammy by foxhound. I’ve created my own list here . http://www.101bestwordpressthemes.com/blog/music-wordpress-themes.html

    Take a look..

  4. how can you just have a website without ANY stupid background shit? The WHOLE page is just your photo? Why do you need ridiculous tacky backgrounds???

  5. Thanks again Oli for sharing our themes on your site, we love working for musicians and really appreciate the support :) We just completely overhauled our most popular theme into Dark N Gritty Evolved. Now it’s responsive/retina/etc. with a ton more visual options and some more discography options.
