Sign in to view read count
BandPage is discontinuing many of its most used features as of March 1st. BandPage has served as a cornerstone of many artist's web and Facebook presence since it launched in 2009. But when Google's YouTube purchased the company in February of this year, major change became inevitable.

As of March 1st, 2017, BandPage is discontinuing many key features that artists have used for years and migrating others to YouTube, as it pivots to serve as a profile and direct to fan tool for the video platform's many creators. 

BandPage users will no longer have access to the BandPage editor and these key features will be discontinued:
  • Website widgets
  • Bandpage.com public-facing profiles
  • The BandPage Facebook applications
  • BandPage store and event features
  • Facebook and Twitter integrations
  • Custom website
  • Account creation and ability to add new admins
Content currently displayed on BandPage and distributed to partner sites and services through the discontinued features will no longer display on partner platforms. That includes any offers sold directly through the BandPage Store, custom website widget integrations and installed Facebook applications.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
