Not sure if this is in the right forum but, My band (acoustic/rock) is playing in DC on Monday at the Cherry Blossom Festival. We're driving about 2-1/2 hours in one small car and my band want me to only take my bass and play thru the P.A. They're like you'll sound fine thru the PA and you'll be able to hear yourself fine thru the monitor. They can't seem to understand why I want to play thru my own rig. I really think I should take my rig. It's pretty small, a 2x10 Acme cab, and a EA iAMP800. I really don't like the idea of playing thru just the PA. Should I definitely take my rig ? I'm thinking I should even if I have to drive my own car. Has anyone ever played thru just a PA ?
