Not really sure where this belongs and search didn't turn up much, so it's going here for now I guess.

I think it's about time for me to get a clean, professional looking website. Now, I could do it myself if I brush up on my java and flash, but I really don't have the time or patience to do so.

So I've been looking around at some design firms. It seems to be more expensive than I thought and some seem totally unreasonable for what I want the website to do. (Just have a bio, a few sound clips, gigs listing, booking info, contact info really- Nothing complicated, and I'm not really a huge fan of flash either.) Anyone got advice about good design firms that maybe are used to working on musicians sites?

I really only need the initial design, as I know plenty to update info on my own.

Easiest way would be to use Wordpress,(most hosting companies offer an easy set up now) the heirarchy is all set up, and there are thousands of themes and free plug-ins to handle audio and video I like coolplayer myself.

and you can set it to open on a static page.
Wordpress is a blog software, but it has many uses. I'm no expert, but you can set it up as a static page and then have other pages, or you can make posts as ina blog. the nice thing is its heirarchy which is Search engine friendly, and the cascading style sheets, so the pages/posts all have the same look and you don't have to do any formatting.
