our band needs to get some gear so we can actuly hear the singer when we practice. at the moment we have nothing for vocals (no amps or pa's or mics or anything) What are our options for what amps etc to use. also we are on a tight budget so cheapest possable options would be good place to start.

Well my band ran our vocals through a karaoke machine for a while before we upgraded. It sounded like crap but it still amplified the vocals.

Bass to WHAT DO YOU MEAN, "MAKE ME A SANDWICH"?

You can also use a bass amp if it has two inputs. You need a cheap mic cable with 1/4 phono jack or one of those XLR->1/4phono adapter. The downside is sometimes you end up not being able to hear the vocals or the bass.

Fender Passport series PA.

To do the dual-input bass amp thing, I've found it useful to run the mic through a relatively cheap Casio keyboard with a mic input. I've used that to boost the signal from the mic, so that it isn't drowned out by the bass so much.
