Next Sunday I start playing with the adult worship band at my church. Problem is, as it is now they have zero stage volume(in ear monitors etc.) I have a fender blues junior and they told me if I want to play with an amp I have to find a way to completely or nearly completely cut the volume.

The other guitarist leaves his amp in a closet backstage but the sound guy is worried about the microphones bleeding over. Should I build an isolation box of some sort? I'm a little worried about the amp overheating, it gets super hot as is. Any help anyone could give would be greatly appreciated.

do they need you to cut the volume off completely for certain parts of songs or for you to be barely heard while youre playing?

Yes, with ss amps. At high volumes, Tube amps are awesome.
Could you get an attentuator?

basicly they want the only sound you are making come through the PA system correct? if so then you should just buy a POD and run it into the PA system.

Yeah the only sound they want to hear is through the pa. Ive considered buying an attenuator but it seems kinda senseless to have an attenuator on a 15 watt amp. I'm just a sucker for the tube sound so i dont really want to have to buy a pod.

an attenuator wouldn't do you any good. See if you can find a different closet to have your amp sit in otherwise it looks like your gonna have to build/buy an iso cabinet.

Tell the sound guy he's bad at his job if he can't have two amps in the same room with two mics and have it bleed together enough to be a problem. That's what Cardioid patter mics are for. Besides, so what if it bleeds together? You're not recording a professional album, you're playing live. It'll be fine.

Edit: Build something like this http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Randall-Isolation-12-Speaker-Cab?sku=480371
If you don't have an extra speaker, just take the one out of the BJ and put it in its own box, put the mic in the box, and bam. You're done.
