The way I've done a recording like this is to capture the room sound as a whole, that's a great idea.
If the band has a singer I would concentrate on getting their voice recorded as best as possible.
Then if there is a guitar or keys, for instance, playing a melodic hook or line that's integral to the song I would also do your best to capture that too.
A cool thing that's also a good idea, is to put a 57 or something at floor level, you'd be surprised what that picks up hey!
Anyway, let us know how you go!
