Mic recommendation live streaming w/single mic - rockabilly 50’s inspired band

I’ve started streaming my band on Facebook.

Question: I’m looking for a single room mic that could pick up the whole band. We’re we playing low volume and I’m singing in the room. We’re 50s inspired rock ‘n’ roll rockabilly band.

My mic budget is $250 to $350 looking for a mic that I could use for our stream and recording further down the road.

I already have a couple dynamic mics and one is a MXL R144 Ribbon mic they sound decent. I don’t have any condenser microphones and I’m not sure if that would be a good selection to pick up the whole band in a room. Basically: 1 Mic about 3-5 feet in front of us > Mixer > iPhone (Facebook live / YouTube live)

ps: I posted in the newbie section first but thought maybe it could be here too

Maybe something that is multipatterned like a used sE Electronics sE4400a?

Could try out different patterns depending on the band set up. I've a heard a lot of good things about that mic.
