I've currently got GarageBand and a few Jam Packs. I'm in a "real" band, and am looking to make more music with my Mac, either enhancing tracks recorded in a studio (for example with strings), or remixing and recording real instruments directly, rather than using loops. I don't want to spend too much at the moment, so do I:
1) Buy Logic Express 8 as a step up from GarageBand?
2) Stick with GarageBand and get a keyboard to go with it (any keyboard recommendations?)?
A couple of other questions...
Can I use my GarageBand instruments in Logic Express, or does it come with many instruments included?
Will I notice much difference in terms of functionality between GarageBand and Logic Express?

I've just ordered Studio myself for this reason.
All Apple loops and instruments work with all their Apps so, for example, I use Soundtrack loops with Garageband and vice versa.
The most interesting part of Studio (which isn't included in Express) for me is Mainstage which sounds like it might interest you as well.
Here is the review that sold me:
