We play at a bar in Milwaukee and the owner has a nice house PA and lighting. He usually doesn't mic the guitar amps. The drums are mic'd but he doesn't mic our amps. I usually bring my Deluxe Reverb and I'm plenty loud. The place is long and narrow. It's about 40 feet wide and 100 feet deep. I hurt my back lifting a subwoofer and I'm trying to be careful with lifting. My Blues Junior has an Eminence Red White and Blues speaker. I set the amp clean and I have TS808 and Klon clones on my board. The BJ is much lighter than the DRRI. Better for my back. This was sound check time on Friday..... The 4x12 cab on the other side of the stage belongs to the house. Our other guitar player always brings a 50 watt Fender EVH head. My BJ is sitting on a carpeted brief case that I take to shows. There were about 70 people in the bar at any given time. I had ample volume. No problem whatsoever. Clean to dirty.....no problem. We were loud. I've never gigged a 15 watt BJ before. It can be done with ease.
