Shoot one wide shot live. Two cameras would be on the wish list for this, but a track/dolly shot would make it nicer with the added motion- keep the motions very slow. Make a CD of the live audio. Play this back on individual takes so each member can synch up to the original and shoot each angle. The CD audio in the B roll will give you a good reference. Made a detailed plan/storyboard or how many angles you want for each member. Shoot one player with different angles on each CD playback. Try to keep other members out of the shot or ensure they are in synch. Keep the original live track and wide shot, then insert edit till you pass out!
