I've stumbled upon a marvellous website recently, which is neatly layouted and also animated. On a closer look; they are using WordPress, apparently along with:

2015 was a rather eventful year, for my standards at least. There was another impressive concert with The Melodetts, featuring a quartet three + me singers performing "Caravan of Love", which was of course especially thrilling for the four of us. I've also produced an audio recording of the event; and part of it has been published for the first time: "Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen".
