One possible reason to reconsider the sequencing idea is that you can more easily modify the tempos at the gig. You can even get the sequencer to follow someone in the band. Friends of mine who have played over recorded drum tracks cite fixed tempo as the biggest frustration.

You don't really know how fast to play a song until you do it in front of a live audience, and there are some subtle differences in crowds and venues that can influence the 'proper' tempo for each.
