What happens if I plug into both the line AND mic inputs on the same channel of a sound board? Will both work?

My band is playing at a coffee shop that has only a four channel mixer. We need a total of 5 inputs.

Each channel on the board has both a line and a mic input jack, and so the guy who owns the shop suggested we could plug both a mic AND an instrument into one of the channels.

I think that sounds like crazy talk, and that we need to either get a mixer with more channels, or live without amplification on one of our instruments.

Am I right?
Thanks very much for all the responses. In response to Hogshead's questions, I know very little about the mixer in question, since I haven't seen it yet -- it's only been described to me. We'll be using dynamic mics, though.

Our current plan is to bring our own 4-channel PA, and go from its "tape out" into one of the inputs of the house board. That will get us plenty of inputs.

More information would be useful to get a good answer for this question.

Are you using high or low impedance microphones? Are you running dynamic or condenser mics? Is the extra channel needed for mic input or line input? Does the mixer have an auxiliary input or return (these are usually used for signal return from a processor of some sort, but they can be used as a line input)?

As a rule, input should not be summed, because the signal strength may over load the mic preamps. Nor should the output of a power amd be summed. Some signal processors allow for utilizing both the balanced and unbalanced outputs simultaneously but one should consult the owners manual of the equipment for a definitive answer. If a key board is in the mix, run it mono and free up a channel that way.

Add more detail and we'll be able to help out more, or contact me through yahoo IM through this site.

Addendum: Utilizing your mixer's tape out may work, but this is an unbalanced source, and may well perform poorly, although with a short cable run, even if unbalanced and unshielded (as RCA connectors), you might get away with it. If it is possible pre-view the venue and the mixer, or have a good "plan B."

You will have a floating audio ground, so Mr. Hum and Ol' Man Buzz may show up. The invitation is greater if one or both of the mixers are powered by wall warts. Be sure, if possible, all the electronics, are running on the same AC circuit to try and help head off the ground loop that may produce these audio anomalies.
