We have all seen the instrumental apps available for Apples portable devices, but while most of us are happy to bash out a basic tune or beat on our iPad/iPhone, there is always someone out there ready to out do us.

Step forward the latest group to hit the Internet, the North Point iBand. As the name suggests this group of musicians have merged their talents with Apple’s iPad and iPhone to produce the most interesting compositions.

Mac Daily News reported on the North Point iBand performing as a ten strong orchestra reproducing Christmas hits “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree,“ “Carol of the Bells” and “Feliz Navidad.”

With just the use of five iPad’s (four of which were borrowed) and five iPhone’s loaded with apps such as Melody Bell, Pocket Organ and Guitarist, the group from the North Point Community Church practice before Sunday Service.

Originally formed as a fun experiment, the iBand’s Reid Greven explains: “We all own iPhones, and being musicians we all have music apps on them and we went from there.” Greven also spoke about their first performance saying, “We woke up that Sunday morning hoping for maybe some smiles and maybe some mild applause.” He added, “We just hoped they would get what we were doing and not hate it.”

If you have not seen the clip head over to The Star and check out the link, it’s well worth watching. Tell us you have seen anything like the iBand, if so let us know.
