Guys the question goes as in the title can somebody make it in a gig using a 20 watt tube head and a 2x12 cab? any response is most welcome!

Not vital at all, we got the cleans covered by another guitarist.Talking about medium sized bar-pub aprox. 100 people in it.

Piece of cake then. You'll easily be loud enough to play a small pub gig like that dude

Easily, if cleans aren't vital that is.

If they are at some point, any good pub or bar should have some kind of inhouse PA system to mic you up.

It will be fine. You should always mike up the amp anyway so the sound guy has some control over you in the mix. The aim of the game for you is to get a good on stage mix, FOH is somebody else's concern.

Possibly.

But why are you trying to "get away with it"? Why not just use an amp that meets your needs without any second thoughts?

I played out with an all tube Fender 1x12 champ. The other guitar player had a 100 watt Marshall half stack. We were both mic'ed and threw the monitors. The only real difference was my amp was a lot easier to carry.
I'm an expert on all of them. Even the ones I made up.

Dirt and fertilizer. TS9DX. Fulltone 70's, Vox Brit boost, Mesa V-twin and a DLS. Everything grows better with lots of dirt.

a 20 watt amp with speaker (rated a 95 dB sensitivity, which is a fairly conservative rating in the guitar world) should be able to crank out ~108 dB. 108 dB is pretty damn loud, generally that is about enough to be heard well.
