Not sure if this is the right place to post, but whatever.

OK, what does an entire band need besides the obvious(guitar, bass, players, etc.) to play a gig from small bars to huge venues?? Not an expert on gig and gonna play some shows soon...
P.A. system would be a good thing to have.

A mixer.

Stage lights if you're feeling it.

all you should need is your basic equipment and material. guitars, cables, amps, drums is all you should need. Most venues have their own PA system and microphones, so you should be able to show up, set up, and play. And having something to play is also an obvious necessity.
