Sympathetic Vibration capture

I'm doing a live capture in a hall with an experimental jazz group. They want me to do some "standard" approaches, and some "weird" stuff - just to see what comes out. There's no pianist in the group, but there is a grand in the hall. For one of my "weird" things I want to mic the piano to pic up sympathetic vibrations and the reverberations within the body and off the lid. However, I'm not used to doing this in the context of a full band playing next to the piano. Any suggestions on the best approach to getting that "weird" sound.
