I'm not sure where to post this, but General seems fine.
I'm looking for information on how to build a membership site. It's meant to be for a fan club, and I'm looking for good software/online solutions.
Is there a website you can recommend on how to build a membership site? Or maybe even a site that suggests a good software. I would be willing to pay, however, the price shouldn't be outrageously high.
I'd appreciate any and all input.

I don't use either of these currently. I have been tempted to start using Joomla, but a friend of mine talked me out of both. His argument was that with both of these being open source programs that while they may work great when you have a problem there is no regular support option so you are forced to search message boards and comb through forums, blogs, etc. to find a fix if one exists. That can cause you to waste a lot of time. For that reason alone you may want to consider a paid software program that has a good track record and support.
On the other side of the argument, some people don't mind searching for fixes and work around solutions and a lot of people and groups love these programs.
