The small Mackie mixer and a 115D. They get pretty LOUD. 1000 Behringer watts ;)
The 15 should support bass but a stand alone bass amp would be better. But vocals, guitar, and bass guitar, I think it would be fine for a practice or coffee house gig.
A second one later would make for a more conventional gig setup. Then monitors?

My NYE gig just used 2 3 way powered JBLs on stands, 4 DIs, and 3 vocal mics. Yup, just 7 channels on a Midas M32R. Upright bass, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and a fiddle. All had installed pickups. Easiest NYE gig I ever had.

            Mike M gets a wedding gig for his ensemble and then gets the "ceremony" spoken word portion of the sound he double dips this NYE. You get the bluegrass gig and you are done by 10:45pm. I had ... more

              In the 70's and 80's NYE was the only night of the year that EVERYONE had a gig. All of the musicians that I knew had gigs..I'd get called for a few different contractors/bands and took my... more

        He lives in a small apartment with mixed "students" and "room mates" and/or "young marrieds". He still lives with his Mom. Thus space is tight. Volume could be a real enemy of the neighbors, so... more
