Live Audio Broadcast Options: I want to broadcast a live music performance of mine to friends and family abroad. What are my options?

I have access to a WiFi connection in the concert hall that gets 350-800kbps up and I have a Macbook Pro with a Snowball USB microphone (which is mono). I've tried livestream for an audio-video feed, but it produced a pretty crappy feed, and the audio was the first thing to go when it got bad, so I'd like to set my priorities to the audio. Given the mono microphone, we're not talking about all that much data here, so surely there's a decent way to get it out to the masses.
I've tried Nicecast, which seems to work nicely at home, though I haven't yet checked if it will work on the hall's network, or if it takes more bandwidth for each additional listener, since it doesnt use external servers. Any other options, ideally one with a central server?
