The iPad band

I recently ran across this video on youtube:  A bunch of musicians at a church in Atlanta downloaded musical instrument apps for iPads and put on a Christmas concert.  They were written up in a Toronto newspaper, which listed a few of the apps they used in case you want to start your own instrument-less band.  The set list included Carol of the Bells, Rockin around the Christmas Tree, and Feliz Navidad.  Unfortunately no Pete Townsend windmill chords, or Jimmy Hendrix onstage pyres, although the drummer did put a little feeling into his playing.
