I don't know much theory, but I wrote a nice song on the piano a couple days ago. I'm about to show my band, and all of the chords need to be in the same key for the band. The chords I'm using are F, C, and Bb. Are these all in the same key? If not can you tell me which one(s) isn't/aren't? Thanks a ton! I mite post it if we record it. When I play it, it sounds ok to me, I just need to know for sure.

yes, they are in the key of F major.
F = I
Bb = IV
C = V

why does it even matter though? if they sound good, then use them. simple.

Yes they are, they are in the key of F.

F major triad: F A C

Bb major triad: Bb D F

C major triad: C E G

F major has all the notes natural except for Bb, therefore, your progression is in F major, because the notes of the chord fits the keys.

Just so you know, that I-IV-V motion is a common progression in a major key; it sounds good to you and a lot of other people.
