I'll just add in that there is a difference between a no amp all direct set up and using IEMs on a regular stage with amps and acoustic drums.

I agree with this statement.  We went no amps (guitar+bass+keys) for small gigs (most of what we play < 200) with a real drums.  The guitar player has a Axe-Fx II XL+ guitar processor and the bass player has a bass guitar processor. The biggest problems we had were cymbals bleeding into the vocal mics, getting the drum mix to sound good consistently, and (for smaller rooms) getting the drummer to play softer as to not overwhelm the mix.  Recently, the drummer purchased an electronic set and it solved all of these problems. It also helped reduce our setup time....  The drummer likes playing real drums (as I like playing real piano), but as we get older we don't like carrying around a bunch of heavy gear. IEMs have really helped us out in many ways... once we got used to using them.

The 3 piece we have been running for the past 18 months has no backline but the drummer has acoustic drums ( the kick is a friggin' cannon). However, it has never been a problem in the iems at any venue, any size.  I can tell from the levels I see per each mix that the guitarist and bass player are getting good isolation and all faders are close to zero across the board.
Guitarist uses Fractal direct and the bass is TC Electronic BH550 direct or sometimes even a Sansamp.
