I have a drummer we have been jammin, im going to have a bassist come in within the next week. I need a way to amplify vocals, what would be the best way to go about this? I have a 60w SS guitar amp but I hear it doesnt sound very good and could hurt the amp. I really dont want to spend much, I plan on getting a good PA one day but I dont want to blow a few hundred on a small PA when I know someday ill get a large PA. Any suggestions?

you could use a spare bass amp. A bass amp speaker can handle the frequencys of the average human voice. Thats what my band does and it works fine.

Yea I see PA Packages for around 200$ with two 10" speakers 100w system, but how loud would it need to be for a band jamming to keep up with the guitar amp and drummer?

Keyboard amps work well also.

Buy a cheap bass or keyboard amp. My band got by with a 45w Behringer keyboard amp for a long while.

a guitar amp wouldn't likely get damaged unless your singer is a bass (or maybe a baritone) won't sound very good, but it's workable.
