Populating and Adding from mutiple custom post types?

  1. I am trying to create an input form for administrators/editors to be able to add and modify bands.

    I have a custom post type set for Bands and other Members (using Custom Content Types). Under the bands post, I used Advanced Custom Fields to make a field to call a relationship between the Bands and the Members. Members can be in more than one band, and all bands must have 1 or more members.

    I was able to create a conditional statement for the band name, where if no pre-existing band is entered (add new), a Title line is added to enter a post title for a new band.

    I would like the Members field to populate based on a selected band, and have the user be able to (+) or (-) the field, while having the ability to add more members to the band - posting to the Members post type.

    I chose to have both Bands and Members be custom post types, because both require unique fields.

    I should add that I am using Events Manager to index the Events (which would need to call on a band post type - add if not exist - and ability to add multiple bands).

    The ideal situation would be:
    An event page that displays - Event Info - Location - Bands
    A location page that shows - Location Info - Events - Bands that have played there
    A Band page that shows - Band Info - Members - Locations Played - Events Played
    A Members page that shows - Member info - Associated Bands - Events played (based on bands) - Locations Played (Based on band)

    I have gravity forms + custom post types as well.

    I am stuck. Please help me?

    I'm unable to access that page without logging in and demo/demo doesn't work to log me in. It sounds like the issue might be on the custom post types side, but I would have to be able to have a look. Gravity Forms and Custom Post Types doesn't always play well together in all situations.
