Does anyone know what happened to the PDF Band Music Library?

Note: service to the PDF Band Music Library has been returned.  You can once again access resources at the site.

Original Post:

I hope it is only a temporary issue, but this evening I was trying to locate the PDF Band Music Library (www.pdfbandmusic.org), and it is not loading.

Does anyone know what happened to the site? Did it close because of a lack of funding? Is this related to some of the recent actions that shut down “sharing” sites?

Did a publisher find a work under copyright and request the whole site to be shut down like IMSLP?

Or did the site just change hosts and is in that period where it won’t appear until all the net servers are updated?

If you know can you please send me an e-mail?

UPDATE:

I just received an e-mail (Thanks, Rich!) that mentioned that the site was hacked and that they are working on getting the site back up as soon as possible.

This happens to be one of those rare situations where searching Google (i.e. beyond a single search) didn’t turn up any information on why the website was down. Even a Twitter search for “PDF Band Music Library” (and some derivatives) resulted in finding my own post!
