Jazzing up the web

We love taking on projects that challenge us to think creatively and deliver exceptional results. And working with Dan Ferris of FerrisJazz was nothing short of a pleasure. His passion for jazz music was infectious, and we were thrilled to help him showcase his talent to the world.

As with all our projects, we started by listening to his needs and understanding his vision. He wanted a simple, easy-to-use website that reflected the timeless appeal of jazz music and that offered easy access to his music and upcoming gigs.

We took inspiration from his music and decided on a black-and-white colour scheme that exuded sophistication and elegance. Our team worked to ensure that the website was not only beautiful but also functional. We integrated WooCommerce which allowed FerrisJazz to sell albums and merchandise online. We also included a section that made it easy for people to express interest in booking a gig.

And with Potato Care, our cloud-based hosting and WordPress maintenance service, Dan’s website is always up and running, with 99.99 percent uptime guaranteed.

The website was delivered in just 14 days and was well-received by our client. It’s been a valuable tool for promoting Dan Ferris’s music and increasing his online presence. It’s always a joy to see our clients’ visions come to life, and we take pride in delivering websites that exceed expectations.


Metal Potato created a site that is ideally suited to the needs of my music business. The site conveys information in a clean and simple format, which is exactly what was requested.
