(Ignore if 'band live' means recording them playing live in an unequipped studio, but worth a look into if it is a live gig in a venue)...

It might be worth checking which FOH / monitor desk they have for the show. On the off chance it is a digital desk with Dante protocol, easiest way would be via Dante Virtual Soundcard.
Other digital desks have various cards as options that enable easy multitrack recording.

I mix on a Yamaha CL5 mostly, and record every show to laptop running Reaper via Dante, up to 64 tracks without any hiccups (and running room analyser software on the same machine). However, I do use an external thunderbolt SSD.
