I wanted to know what gear I should have to get me started in shooting bands in my area. Current gear is 2 Canon 40D bodies and main lens Canon 17-55 2.8. What other lens choices would you say would be a must have at this point early on.

13 lurkers, who have no clue on gear or insight? Bueller... Bueller

Head over to the Performing Arts "talk" section, the post would do better over there...

It's there now ;)
Start off by reading the FAQ (Around the top of the list).
What you have seems fine.
What more you want depends on the venue you shoot, and your preference.
If you need a fast lens, maybe a prime would be a nice addition. Otherwise a 70-200/2.8IS is a no brainer.

I'd say add a F1.4 or F1.8 prime first. Maybe even two. Really nice would be the 85 F1.8. I'd really consider some low light primes before upgrading the 70-200...
