What is the difference between yhtye and bändi?

No difference really! Yhtye is maybe a more formal word and bändi more casual, both are still very much used.

Yhtye (like "grouping" or such) is more of a Finnish word and bändi is a loan word from English [band]. In general they're interchangeable.
