if you dont wanna spend the money, find a place to rent them or find a friend that has a pa
'I love her, but I love to fish...I'm gonna miss her"

If you can get your hands on a mixing board (just a simple four input one would probably do) then you can run your mics through the mixer (so that you can adjust the volume & eq for each individual mic) and then run the mixer through an amp. (you'll need an amp for this, not just a speaker cabinet).

PAs would give better sound and you would have multiple speakers around the stage, but failing that the mixer/amp combo works fine... it's what my band uses when we practice.

How many people... and what sized room?

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

You can get away with a really small compact system for that. A couple of mics, stands, cables, and a modest power amp with a couple of vocal PA speakers and you should be good.

Is this a one-off, or will you be doing this sort of thing frequently? If it is a one-off, your best bet would be going to your music store, telling them what you want to do, and getting their advice on which rental system will work best for you. You're not going to have to spend much at all for something like that. $40 maybe?

A pair of these maybe? That would be enough to play a medium sized hall, like a large gymnasium or something.
