I think the answer is probably going to be "it depends".

How complex are the bios?  Are you writing them in HTML, or some flavor
of a "Band Markup Language"?

It sounds like a project that I would have conventionally done with a
relational database, but it could also be a good way to familiarize
yourself with XML-based Web development, depending on how large or
mission-critical it is.
