Writing a biography about your band is easy, writing a good one takes more effort. Unfortunately many don’t include important facts and fall short. Things you should avoid: 1. Making too long, or long, or not long enough. 2. Don’t really tell anything about the band. 3. Concentrate on one member and not each member. Even if you are the leader and the others backup, readers and potential clients want to know more about the other members. Here are a few pointers for writing a good one: 1. Make it long enough to give a full description of your group, typically around a five hundred to fifteen hundred words. More and you’ll lose readers. 2. Include what type of music you play. 3. Give each member equal billing. Include where they studied music and any degrees acquired. 4. Include how many years they have played as a professional musician. 5. Include any name acts that they have toured or did studio sessions with. 6. Add the band’s plans for the future, for example producing CD’s or landing a recording contract. Here is an example of band description: Our band is a five-piece high-energy rock band; we’ve been together for ten years. With two- lead guitarist, thumping bass, multi keyboards and a drummer who uses both acoustic and electric drum. All the members are lead vocalist and we’ve accomplished the sound of a full rock symphony with the aid of today’s state of the art electronic synthesizers. The next paragraph focuses on individual members. (Add an image of each member next to their profiles if  possible) Name-lead guitars and vocals studied at the University of Name graduated with honors. Toured with big name act and was nominated for a Grammy. Name-lead guitars and vocals studied at the University of Name graduated with honors. Toured with big name act and was also nominated for a Grammy. Name-Keyboards and Vocals studied at the University of Name and mentored by Celebrity Artist. Has tour with and written songs for Celebrity Artist as well as national TV ads. Name-Bass and vocals is the owner of a music school giving lessons to beginners and advanced students. He also publishes how to DVD's for beginner, intermediate and advanced bass players. Name-Drums is a highly sought after studio drummer doing sessions for Celebrity Names and has toured with Celebrity Names. End with quotes from different publications endorsing the group. Make them short about one sentence and from about three or four publications. In combination with good images, audio and videos you have the makings for a professional website.
