Serving musicians and bands
always seem to be some of the last ones on the technological band wagon.
I have seen and heard too many stories of guys getting scammed out of hard
earned gig money by slimy sales staff talking them into the purchase of
computer equipment or internet services they don't need. I'm a professional
trumpet player myself and have witnessed such deplorable practices first
hand... and it nauseates me. Good players being taken advantage of
because they lack the experience and know-how to protect themselves.
Sure - this goes on everyday in every aspect of life... but I'm in a position
to help my peers. So now I design and program websites exclusively
for musicians and bands when I'm not recording or touring and with a huge,
bustling staff of 1 - me - you're guaranteed personal time, assistance
and rates that are far below what web-service houses are charging.
Everybody should have a website. The internet is the single most effective method of GLOBAL communication and advertising that any musician could ever want. Some guys want just a page or two with their bio and a picture... others want dozens of pages, rich with content with downloadable soundbytes from the CD and a photo gallery of their last tour... but all of you need the same 3 things - A SITE, A WEBHOST and a DOMAIN NAME. These 3 seemingly innocent requirements represent alot of time and effort on both our parts, so the purpose of this site isn't to just quote my rates - but to educate you on what it is you're getting into and suggest as many options as I can. My hope is that even if you don't hire me for your website needs, once having read through this site you'll be in a better position to help yourself.
Remember -- knowledge is power.
The analogies :
If you already have a Webhost you're happy with, then the
following web design and programming rates apply to you:
This is what I do -- build the car. We meet, we discuss what it is you're looking for on each page of the site and what graphics and pictures you'd like to use. I then go off and code the site and provide it to you on CD in HTML format or for an additional $15 I’ll upload it directly from my computer to your webhost and test each link.
If you DO not have a WEBHOST, then you need to get one.
This is where your site will parked on the internet.

If you're here, it means you're a professional musician or artist -- just like me. The goal of Mahogany Web Services is to inspire and foster artists helping artists. I came up in Brooklyn, New York and the one thing I learned there, is that you need to be part of a community. New York's just so big and so expensive and so daunting... one of the only ways to survive was to link arms with your peers and help each other. That's the underlying spirit of this service - artists helping artists. Looking forward to hearing from you.
A'ight... I'm out. Peace.
