First, go to iMovie/Preferences and make sure to check "Display Time as hh:mm:ss:frames"
This way you can edit to the Frame Level rather than to the nearest tenth of a second, (about 3 frames).
Then zoom in on the thumbnail slider to make the thumbnails each 1/2 second long. Then you should be able to move the audio track to the nearest frame.
iMovie can only adjust audio to the nearest frame.
In Final Cut Pro X, you can nudge audio to 100 increments within a video frame to get it lined up exactly. FCPX can also automatically line this up for you, using the audio from the camera and the audio from your professionally mixed track.

Thank you for the reply.
I had already done both of those two. It's very close but as you can imagine with a live band video it has to be dead on.
Sounds like final cut pro would be a better tool for this.

Yes, Final Cut Pro would let you get it very close.
FCPX has a big learning curve, but on the other hand, you can import your iMovie Project and Event and go on from there.
If you decide to sync it automatically, there are some good video tutorials on how to use the Multicam feature.
