Friday Fun Video: iPhone band performs on NY Subway

New York band Atomic Tom had their instruments stolen, so they rocked out with their back-up instruments - their iPhones! Each member of the band used an app on their iPhone to play a different part (drums, guitar, bass, keyboard, vocals). They gave a great performance on the New York subway; passengers can be seen bobbing their heads and getting into the music. This is the kind of thing I would love to see in person!

Video after the break!

Friday Fun Video: iPhone band performs on NY Subway


Haha! I put this video on my facebook page and downloaded the song from iTunes. You have to love the IPhone. It's only limited by our imaginations.
Now all Steve needs to do is get this band at an Apple event and have them play this song on their IPhones. It would be Epic.
Oh and get this into an iPhone commercial. "had your instruments stolen and getting ready to go on stage?" There is an App For That.

I absolutely LOVE this!!! What talent they have here, wish I could've seen something like this live!

@Jeff B Check out their other songs.. They have some other great tunes you might enjoy if you liked this song.

Very impressive, that american improvisation at it's best. Can't believe Jobs hasn't jumped on this for PR! Good work guys.
