    For me the background is too distracting in the first

    The lighting in the 2nd is better but then you lose the fact that it's outside, which I assume was one of the main things you wanted

    I would scout for a different location (more urban industrial perhaps or maybe more rural (woodland?) and take the sofa there, then I'd probably add a 3rd or even 4th light to help bring out some of the background to make a statement as to where they are

    Depends also on the type of music the band play , as that will also dictate what and where you shoot. Did you speak to the band about what image they were after?

    Also (finally and then I'll shut up )who is the lead singer, you may want the rest of the band sitting back and the lead forward or the other way round even.

    Worthing playing around with ideas

    I would light the band w/softbox and singer in background with grid at lower power.
