Some random thoughts - it's basically solid design, these are mostly little stylistic nitpicks. Also if it sounds really blunt I apologize, I'm in serious pain (zee midol, it does nossing!) and just trying to make sense. Finally, I'm on a PC running the latest version of Firefox at 1400x1050 resolution.

- I'm gonna be honest, I want a new color scheme. Tan, aqua and blue? With the bright green in their logo? Does not work at all. I would go with all blue, myself, and change up the link color. Tan and aqua says "I am a middle-aged woman with a doll collection" instead of "We are a cool, up-and-coming band with serious talent."

- Default font - i.e. Times New Roman - looks very blah and unprofessional. I like sans-serif fonts for web pages. Use a hard coding for that?

- Maybe this is just me, but I don't like the nav-frame on the right, particularly because then the content-frame scrollbar gets in the way. There might be some sort of trick to get the scrollbar on the other side, or you could just flip them.

- The media page desperately needs organization. Thumbnails would make it a lot cleaner and more organized, although it would be a lot of work. The entire second half, from buddy icons on down, is fantastic. I just want the top to match the bottom!

- Something is seriously hinky in the "online CD booklet" page. All I get for the pages is a black page with a white bar across the line with the number I clicked. And the first one has what I assume is the CD cover image with a myspace link across it - but it's at the bottom and kind of off-center to the right. Don't know what's up with that.

- The table for upcoming show dates gives me a horizontal scroll in the content frame, but that could just be my browser-window size.

Viewing on mozilla foxfire:

I cannot see the bottom of the J in the header. I readlly like the header font and style though I dont know how much I enjoy the background color. It doesn't seem to fit in with the color scheme.

I enjoy the press biography page. It's very simple yet appealing. The only thing I would change is the font because I am just v. against Times New Roman. Personal preferance.

The online CD booklet's first page in mozilla shows up really wonky.

I really like the table idea for shows and dates. It will keep things very organized.

Personal Preferance: The myspace page link and the youtube link (as well as all this links on the links page) should open in a new window not inside the frame. Usually I think most people prefer this.

i don't really like the colors either. there are too many of them.
in my browser (firefox) the bottom of the logo is cut off.
and some of the pictures in the photo section look like they're sized incorrectly and look wonky.

I'm also not a huge fan of the colours. I mean, they're very clean and simple, but they come off a little to clinical for a page about a band. I'd switch the navbar to the left of the screen so that the scrollbar doesn't just sort of hover between them, and also, a border between the frames would make the edges seem less blunt.

One the whole the page is well-organized, though. It's easy to navigate and you can tell the effort has been made for it to look professional.

i think the pictures in the "pictures + media" section need to have something else done to them, i just don't like the way that part of the page looks

the online CD booklet is really cool! I like that section.

yeah, i'm with everyone else, the colors don't work for me. and the top banner seems really plain and too simple.

that is all, love! :)

no it's not! I forgot to say i like the background color in the "Show Dates" section, but the table is really long and the scrolly action isn't as fun

I really like and agree with what everyone else has said already. The online CD booklet shows up fine in Safari except for page 8 - but I really like it, except for that page - the text is running off the background a little. And the bottom of the logo cuts off in Safari, too, so that's probably the first basic fix I'd do if I were you, since it's the header and all =P

Also, I agree with the youtube/myspace linking thing - but as was said before, that's personal preference. I personally prefer a new window - don't like the whole site-within-a-site thing - it leaves me confused ;-;

Sorry I couldn't offer much more ^^; I think everyone else's comments covered it.
