I've thought about a similar idea sometime in the past: A distributed audio
network with thin clients/raspberrys for a home studio or distributed via
some network. I'd be interested in following whatever progress you make.

About that of "distributed band" I red a little about programs to jam via
internet: Netjack, Ninjam, Midikit.
