Besides that, I don't know what instruments are used in your band, if there isn't a pianist you could become one so you could play alot more songs.
I would say especially the drummer because the drummer deals so readily with form. It is pretty standard for musicians to study at least up to an intermediate level of piano before getting any kind of college degree.
