I don't know much about phpBB; how much can you customise?
At the moment the colour scheme looks very much like quite a few other forums but I suppose that is inevitable. The navigation, clock and calendar don't look so much like other sites.
Until it gets a bit busier and you have a few more moderators it might be a good idea to hide the staff list: it looks a bit lonely at the moment.
Good luck with it. Promoting an interest in local bands and music is a Good Thing.
