No, you need an amp. One of these days I'll finish the battery power tube busking amp but there are already plenty of SS portable amps out there that will work for busking. The pick of the bunch is probably the Roland microcube.

You can't just use any speaker. Guitar Cabinets are designed with a frequency response for your guitar. With out it, you would have a stale clean sound, and a really gross, ear-stabbing distortion sound.

A Crate Taxi is one you should be looking at. The Roland Street Cube is also a good choice as it also has a mic input.

Also when used with a multifx you don't need a guitar cabinet or guitar amp. A PA type powered speaker is fine. It's more than fine if you sing into your amp, it's necessary. The Taxi can handle that.

Tech 21 makes a powered guiter speaker that has a 60watt power amp buit in, but no peramp. your pedal will be the preamp.

Robb it's hard to imagine a 60watt battery powered amp that's easy to tote around.
