Outdoor Jazz Gig...Miked Snare Brushes

I have an outdoor garden party gig coming up with a jazz pianist on electronic keyboard with amp and self on snare only with 2 cymbals. (The people hiring us wanted only this). I gotta' tell you, I'm very excited about seeing what all I can pull out of this rig. The snare will be miked (and I have an on/off) so I can use brushes as much as I want. Just curious if anyone
here has played such a scaled down setup outdoors with brushes. Any tips? Thanks!

Similar but with a jazz guitarist and me with a snare, hi-hat and a riveted ride. 100% brushes. A wonderful playing situation in my estimation. Load in, load out and set up are fast. Wish I could do more like this myself.

Thanks! I just found out today that I can use a hi-hat too. Nice! Well, really looking forward to it and appreciate the replies.
