Suggestions for Sound Reinforcement

This year, our auditioned choir is starting to explore vocal jazz and multi-cultural music.  What kind of setups are existing vocal jazz groups using for sound reinforcement for vocalists and instrumentalists in their combos?  I have an 18 voice SATB choir with a combo consisting of keyboard, rhythm guitar, bass guitar,and drums.  We also use a fair amount of African percussion instruments.  I am particularly looking for specifics on vocal and instrumental mics.  We have a state of the art mixer in our auditorium.  Can I also get feedback from groups who go "unplugged" vocally --no mics.  We perform in venues that do not suit themselves to typical sound reinforcement.  (i.e. nursing homes, senior centers, very small venues)
